Year End Reflections: Common Threads Throughout All Categories


We’re coming to the end of evaluating our goals and resolutions for 2016. This week we’ve been focusing on the third category and taking it in little baby steps.

Yesterday we looked for common threads in goals and resolutions in the third category. Today let’s take a look at these threads in relation to the goals and resolutions in the other categories–the first category with the goals we’ve accomplished and the second category with the goals we’re still working on. Do you notice common threads running through all three categories?

Look for positive common threads as well as the unhelpful ones. What I mean by this is, for example, a positive common thread might be that you gravitate toward activities and projects having to do with animals. Your good at them and you complete all the task, projects, and goals associated with animals–even the toughest jobs. Or, you may notice that you do your best thinking and best work early in the morning or in the evening after your family has gone to bed.

An example of an unhelpful thread might be that drag your feet on the goals and resolutions that are influenced by others. Or, you may notice that you’re great at coming up with ideas and the plans for them but you are really bad at following through to completion.

Spend time with this work because it’s shining light on the truth about yourself. Once you understand what makes you tick, then you can alter your goals and resolutions–and the tasks needed to achieve them–so that everything is more in line with what works best for you.

THERE’S NO JUDGEMENT WITH DOING THIS WORK!! There is no right or wrong; no good or bad. It’s just a matter of figuring out what works best for you so that you can live a meaningful, happy, and fulfilling life.

Keep going; you’re doing GREAT!

And remember to treat yourself TODAY for doing this work!

Your Friend and Pep Pal,
