Yes, we can. No matter what is happening in the world there is beauty around us and cause for hope. But we may need to look deeply for it. It may be that your big purpose this year is to be the cause of someone else's happiness. Today, I am sharing a video on some things you might consider this month to stay positive as we move into the final few months of the year. Looking Back to Move Forward Let's talk about our worst experiences of the past. They may be the key for how you find joy this fall. With everything difficult that is happening in the world, this is a time when we can tap into what we already know about moving through previous difficult times, so that we can also experience joy and satisfaction even if everything is falling apart. In today's video, I shared two types of time management dilemmas:
Following your own instincts or wisdom when they are against what society, your family or your inner critic may be telling you to do.
Learning to lead as a time mastery skill.
These were two different dilemmas that I moved through in the past at times that were both demanding, exhausting and full of joy. You probably have your own time mastery memories, both where you succeeded and you failed. You may realize that joy can accompany our worst times. I want to suggest that you make a point to remember that you've been through times before, not just in 2020, but probably many times throughout your life. Look back and ask yourself what time management lessons are applicable in 2020? We all have a given amount of time between now and the end of the year. How will you use your time? That's the whole focus of this year's fall retreat next Tuesday night. As with all the seasonal retreats, it's pay what you want. I want to help as many people as I can every season. If you would like to work with me and some other wonderful women and men, please join us for the retreat.
I'm hoping whether you attend the retreat or not, that you look back to move forward this fall.
Give yourself permission today to celebrate all the good decisions you have made this year, and all the wise ways that you have used your time. When you look back on 2020, next year and maybe ten years from now, what will you be most proud of? Be a master of your time today!
