Well, here we are again. Winding down yet another 365 days. It is amazing and cliché but so very true…you blink and the year is over.
I always like to step out of the year that passed us by with a powerful question to get me ready for the year ahead.
This year my question to myself is…
What matters most NOW?
Let me explain. In these last 12 months shifts, changes and tweaks have all taken place. Places and spaces where I now want to invest time and energy are vastly different from a year ago.
AND here is the thing... true growth always welcomes change…
NOW I am not saying that change is easy.
As a matter of fact, I always say to my clients “growth and change” often feel yucky and uncomfortable as it rolls its way through your life. However, when the dust settles AND if you have truly done the work, then fulfillment is just on the other side.
AND fulfillment is what we are chasing in life.... that I promise you.
All of that changing, tweaking and growing begins with paying attention to where you are TODAY. What matters to you TODAY is extremely important. You have to know what matters most to you NOW in order to decide what direction you want to head in. Let me say it another way one more time in case you missed it:
RIGHT NOW IS VERY IMPORTANT!
So play along. Try this little exercise yourself.

What might you want to grow, tweak or change about these areas?
