One of the reasons I’ve never been a big fan of labels is that they limit you. They close down the potential of possibilities.
You are many things. You’re a sinner and a saint; a murderer and a monk. The entire world that you experience happens inside your head. Nothing exists outside of your mind. That’s a powerful concept worth grasping.
We’re closing down on the first full week of 2017. Most people have returned back to work. We’re all working on a new set of goals or New Year’s resolutions (hopefully). And already some of you might be finding yourself slipping. In fact, statics say that by the end of next week 46% of us will have given up on our New Year’s resolutions. And come 2018 (I know that seems an age away) only 8% of will have actually achieved what we set out to do. In this video, I offer some tips that might help you stay the course.
Only a few days left until the New Year. Are you ready? Have a listen to the latest episode of our podcast for some useful tools and techniques for getting yourself ready to make 2017 one of your best years ever.
It’s that time of year again. Time to take five minutes, hours, days… and reassess.
What has happened this year? What have you accomplished? What have you learned? What have you been through? And then, turning to the New Year, what will 2017 bring? What do you want to create this year? What would you change?
In this episode, Sarah and Clay discuss end of year rituals and goals for the New Year. Highlights include:
* Clay’s five step process to Celebrate, Evaluate, Envision, Create, Commit.
* How to look back over the year in a positive, constructive way (even at our mis-steps)
* Setting goals for 2017 and strategies to actually accomplish them
* Warren Buffet’s strategy for setting goals and what NOT to do.
* Sarah’s ritual of choosing an ‘animal’ for the year using Animal medicine cards
Enjoy and looking forward to more great conversations over coffee in the Havana Cafe in 2017!
If everybody is a media company these days, then what is the context under which you post your stuff online? Is it organic, or deliberate, or are you unaware of what the sum total of all of your posts communicates about you?
It’s a great tool for keeping track of your thoughts, working out problems or dialoguing with your subconscious mind among other things. I have heavy periods of journalling and then sometimes I go months without journalling at all, but I always know when it’s time to return, like now. I need the space to unload my brain on to paper.
We learn by copying others. If you want to master something new, find someone who is already successful doing what it is you want to do and then model them. Model what they do, how they do it, and model their attitudes and behaviours.
e.e. cummings said, “Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, or any experience that reveals the human spirit.”
