As a Christian Christmas has a special place in my heart; a time of family, where I can contemplate the bigger picture. This year we had a new addition, a baby (but not a boy J ) a little girl, my niece. Oh how children add the special sparkle. Apparently she is just like me… she is a light sleeper and enjoys being entertained all the time… I love it and her. Then off to Wales for New Year celebrations with friends in a rented cottage, walks, games and fun memories made.
I came back to the office this week with a packed schedule which thankfully has reduced enabling me to reflect on a year gone by and consider this year ahead. Can you find space to do the same?
Last year there were many highs; a growing client base for which I won a training award, training nationally and did my first five day straight management training (yes I did say five days straight), a broadening of my training portfolio, more coaching clients with wider goals, more clarity gained around my messages and brand, and even stepping further in alternative projects like branding and copy writing. And I met some amazing truly inspirational people. It was great.
I look forward to more to come this year. The next two months will involved me starting to deliver training online through virtual classrooms, and training across Europe. The highlight I hope though will be my long due book, Pick Me, due in the Spring… look out for it all those of you who wish to hear some more of my story and how to ‘choose well and be chosen in work and life’. Fun hey.
Today I was reflecting on my aims for the year. I don’t like resolutions they are too quick fix/fail; instead I have premised some pillars to build further into this year:
- Courage – to share more of who I am with you all
- Obedience – to do what I know I should and take action over my procrastination (yes I am human)
- Follow up – proactively where I say I will
- Communicate – to continue growing a network of like minded individuals to share the journey with
- Peace – to relax the usual anxiousness of a full London life
- Joy – and enjoy this great and privileged journey I am on.
Perhaps you could consider a new way of setting goals and resolutions for the year?
Be blessed this 2012 and if I can support you in any way on the journey please do get in touch.
