This is it – the last day of the year. How are you spending it? At work? At play? In reflection?
Here are some questions you can ask yourself, as you leave 2019 behind:
• What have I accomplished?
• What did I do right?
• What was my biggest challenge?
• What did I learn?
• How has my perspective shifted from 2018?
• What do I want to bring with me into 2020?
• What do I want to leave behind?
• What is left incomplete or unsaid?
• What am I grateful for?

In your life’s journey, there is a natural flow of releasing and receiving. It is like the motion of the tides. For the new to come in, the old must be released. In honoring this principle, you can keep your life fresh and vital. You know that life is not static; you are meant to be in motion and to grow. As you look at 2019, do you see any elements of your life and work that you are ready to let go of, in order to make room for the new?
Take a moment now to think of 3 elements of your life and work that no longer serve you. What is needed in order to let them go? Always honor all parts of your life and work. They served their purpose and you. Once you do let go, you will have a space ready for new and wonderful elements to enter your life in 2020!

Every once in a while it is good to ask, “What’s The Point?” You can ask this question about a number of things – your career, the amount of time you put into your work, your goals or the way you are living your life. In doing so, you re-center and check up on the alignment of your life with what you want to accomplish and be.
How does your answer to this question measure up? Are you where you want to be? Are you moving forward? Hopefully you are. If not, you now have what you need to change direction.

How are things moving along for you in the new year? Just right? Slow? At warp speed? It helps to focus on the type and level of momentum you want to create in 2019. In doing so, you set the pace of the year and, hopefully, ensure a productive and fulfilling one.
Momentum involves many aspects of your work, including the pace at which you work, the amount of work you handle and the direction you go in. Take a moment to look at the level of momentum you created in 2018. Then, set your sights on the new year and creating a level of momentum that works well for you. Before you know it, you’ll be in your “zone” and getting to where you want to be.

Yes, a bright 2019 is possible. You can make it so. How? By starting on the inside and shining your unique light in the world. What is unique about you? Something special and totally you. Is it a skill, an attitude, a talent, a personality trait? Take that uniqueness and bring it to the world, in any way you can. Then, see how it brightens your year.
What kind of light do you intend you shine?

With 2018 on its way out, are you experiencing any other endings? As things end in your life or work, it helps to acknowledge them and honor the presence they had in your life. That way, you can be free of them and start anew with other things. Endings are best not ignored.
