The dark winter nights are erupting into beautiful warm spring days. The first 3 months of 2018 have come to a close. This chapter is done. The big questions is, Where are you now compared to January 1, 2018?
Are you still in the rat race and going through the motions? Or, have you made noticeable progress? Have you even taken the time to notice? Yes, this is a hard conversation to have. The cool part is – you only have to do this with yourself.
When I did this last year, I had to make some tough decisions. I had to identify where my time was spent and if my time was spent on activities that were meaningful to me. Upon this assessment, I realized I spent too much time serving on too many non-profit leadership boards. I also recognized I had gaps in knowledge for my business. While difficult, this reprioritization freed up significant time to focus on what I love versus giving for the sake of giving and draining myself in the process.
Now it’s your time! Pull out pen and paper and journal about the following:
- What’s working well in your life, career, and relationships right now?
- What’s not working right now?
- What habits can you change?
- Who do you need to become to make this happen?
Spring is about removing the weeds before they overtake your garden. If you’ve ever pulled up a dandelion weed, you know how deep the root is. It’s not about trimming off the top. Old habits are deep rooted. Cut off the root and the whole weed dies. How does this translate into real life?
Where do you need to declutter? A messy office. A disorganized closet. Old stuff you’re keeping around that you haven’t used for years? Too many projects?
By eliminating what’s no longer wanted, you can create the open space you want to thrive and attract opportunities that do serve you. What do you want to nourish, grow, and flourish?
On June 30, 2018, I want you to have a different story. I want you to thrive. I want you to grow and expand your capabilities.
It’s spring and it’s time to weed out what no longer serves you and instead nourish what you truly want.
Wishing you an abundant, joyful and prosperous day!
