As we count down the last few days in 2009, I want to encourage you to take a few minutes and think about everything you’ve accomplished this year. Often at the end of the year we moan about what we didn’t achieve and focus our energy on missed opportunities.
Let’s turn that around into a celebration of 2009:
What are you most proud of accomplishing this past year?
What memories of 2009 make you smile?
Which new friends did you make, and which friendships did you nurture?
I ofen find that some of my best thinking happens when I’m running, walking, biking, or swimming. The physical activity sets my mind free, and I don’t have any other distractions competing for my attention. Before January 1, 2010 take a few minutes to exercise, clear your mind, and reflect on the positive parts of 2009 that you want to add to your bank of memories. Celebrate 2009 and get ready for 2010!
