Today is traditionally a great day to weigh-in… not only a literal [physically] weigh-in to set new exercises and diet aspirations, but the perfect beginning to weigh-in for self-reflection, setting new goals and reflecting on new hope for a New Year.
“If you flee from the things you fear, there’s no resolution.” Chuck Palahniuk
This year, I am resolving to work on eliminating assumptions and expectations of others (and myself) or at least be more intentional with them. Not an easy resolution for me.
Although this is a personal goal, I can see how working on these aspects could cross over to client relationships. If this is a similar resolution to yours, or you’re interested in integrating this into your business model, THIS article by Maddie Cary has a great perspective on understanding expectations of clients.
“Working is one of the most dangerous forms of procrastination.” Gretchen Rubin
Since today is additionally is “Commitment Day”, I challenge you to look at your personal resolutions and recognize if they additionally apply to your business. Commit to resolving not only balance work-life, but to be conscious of how/when you work.
Sometimes, working isn’t a matter of being productive or intentional… but a tool to consciously [or subconsciously] devert attention from tasks or projects as an avoidance tool. Commit to weigh-in today and be intentional in planning a balanced New Year, personally and professionally.
So… what’s your weigh-in? Are you a resolve maker? Share with me!
From my social market to yours, I wish you a prosperous and Happy New Year!
