No matter your celebration of choice, the winter holidays are in full-swing, much to the delight of children . . . while many adults find themselves frantically checking off items on their To-Do lists.
I’m just as guilty as the next person with my own To-Do list. It’s not uncommon for me to “DO” myself into a frenzy during December, and end up catching some sort of bug (YEP – happened again this year!) . . . which in turn, slows me down.
One would think I’d figure out to stop “DO-ing” that . . . BEFORE I get sick.
So, during this Season of Giving, I’m sure I’m not the first to wonder . . .
What if there was a “Season for Being?”
What would that look like? I bet there’d be a beach involved. Temperatures in the 70’s. Warm ocean breezes wafting by. I can hear the waves crashing on the shoreline as it frames a golden sunset on the horizon.
I would BE:
- NOT LOOKING for my To-Do list
- NOT CONCERNED about time/deadlines, nor the next phone call/meeting
- Reading a book (one made from paper, neatly tucked into a well-designed cover‑of course!)
OK. So I think I finally GET IT.
NOW is the time to plan for next December. It’s time to give myself the Gift of Being.
I love what I do, and I love helping our clients share their wisdom with the world . . .
But, next year, we’re going to GET IT ALL DONE before the holidays so WE CAN ALL focus on the Season of Being . . . whatever that means to YOU . . . time for yourself or time with others . . . or BOTH.
