Simple steps to start 2014 right: Reflect, Share & Commit
How was 2013 for you? The memories you choose to focus on will grow and stay with you forever. So take a minute and think back on the bright spots of 2013. What are a couple of personal accomplishments that stand out? Write them down in a place where you can look at them again easily and frequently.
The questions we ask open new worlds. So, I have a question for you. What is one habit you would like to develop in 2014 that would have a big positive impact on your life? Yes, you know what it is. Write it down in the next 60 seconds. Commit to doing it for all of January. By the end of the month it will become a habit. If you already know you won’t be able to keep it up, it’s not the right goal – pick something else. If it’s going to make you less happy in the long-run, it’s definitely not the right one! Now in the next minute, tell someone who can hold you accountable about what you would like to change.
I’d like to conclude this year-end newsletter with a quote from Nelson Mandela that captures the spirit of the Centre’s Diploma in Social Innovation: “There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.”
We wish you all the best for the holidays and for a passionate 2014!
