It's become a bit of a thing now to do an annual review. All the cool kids are doing it - I hope you've done yours.
I was inspired by Chris Guillebeau on reading about his hard year personally, and it prompted me to sit down and do my own reflection on 2014 - the good, the bad, and the things that I'm looking forward to leaving behind.
I've learnt a lot about myself within the 12 months, that I feel like I've lived a lifetime in one year. Now it's time for me to transform those lessons into actionable change. My key lessons are:
So even though my dreams for 2015 are big and lofty, I no longer feel that the way to achieve them is to go flat out juggling everything at once.
I'm jumping on the bandwagon of choosing one word for my year, to focus on what is important for achieving my goals.
2015 is the Year of Freedom.
This encompasses many things for me. Freedom from fear. Freedom from resistance. Freedom from confusion. The 'tool' that I'm going to use to assist me with this at all times, for all decisions that i need to make, and for all opportunities that present themselves to me is based on a combination of what The Minimalists preach, and what a friend Caroline Southwell has taught me:
Only chose the things that bring you joy - if it's not a 'Hell YES, then it's a no.'
I'll write more about how I intend on bringing this into my life, and into my career/business pursuits tomorrow.
