Every day provides a new opportunity to write a chapter in your book.
Were you eager to say, "Good riddance!" to 2020? Be honest. We had a pandemic and multiple lives lost due to it, the start of a global economic downturn, personal and professional challenges. The list goes on! There have been more than a fair share of challenges this past year.
However, even through the cloud, life still provides light.
We can't control everything that life throws at us but it's key to focus on what's in our control. What if there was a way to welcome the New Year that sets the stage for success in 2021? Would you be interested?
Success in leadership and life requires that we pause, reflect, and stay the course or pivot accordingly. This should be done regularly whether it’s sparked by the need to make or the outcome of a major decision or the desire for self-reflection to uncover insight into ourselves and uncover lessons learned.
What were your 2020 highlights? Lowlights? Lessons learned? What behaviour do you want to leave in the past and what behaviours do you plan to improve in 2021? Anchor this to the question you’ve heard me ask before, What kind of leader do you want to be?
Pause. Reflect. Plan. Use the simple guiding questions above as an easy start. I encourage you to dive deeper. Email me for additional questions. As you've likely heard from me before, failing to plan means you're planning to fail. Let's make this year a year of planned success.
