Name Your Year

Towards the end of 2019, a friend said to me that 2020 was going to be his year of reaching out. He was naming his year and setting a powerful intention.

By naming your year, you too can set a powerful intention to refocus on as 2020 progresses.

What do you want this new year of 2020 to be for you?

Jump-Starting 2020

You may already have a fine start to the year, with optimism that it is going to be a good one for you. Or, you may be off to a sluggish start.

You have an opportunity to jump-start your year and make it even better. Here are some ways to do that:

• raise your goals a bit higher than they are now

• move your deadlines up (still doable, while stretching yourself)

• hone your balance emotionally, mentally and physically so you are at your best

• find a support network offering skills and encouragement, as you pursue your goals

• make a commitment to balance work and play this year in order to to fuel the energy level you’ll need

• believe in yourself and that you can make this year your best ever

Why not go faster and farther than you originally planned? Give some consideration to jump-starting 2020 as it begins. You can do it!

Goodbye 2019!

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?

Thank you for reading The Managers Hub in 2019. I am grateful for you!

Where Will Your Inspiration Come From in 2020?

The goals you set for a new year need fuel to keep them going. One thing that is very effective in fueling your goals is inspiration. However, you don’t pick inspiration up on a shelf like a commodity. Inspiration starts within and requires your attention. As 2020 nears, it behooves you to give some thought to creating sources of inspiration to keep your goals and achievements going all year.

Do you know your sources of inspiration? Are they quiet time, your mind, your emotions, outside encouragement, structure, visioning the achievement of your goals or anticipating the rewards of your work? Before the year ends, identify the sources of your inspiration. List them along with your goals and nurture them regularly.

What Will You Leave Behind in 2019?

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!

Ready?

You have some time before the new year begins. Your time can be well used by thinking about what you want to have in place as you begin 2020. What are your goals for 2020? What do you dream of happening in the next year? Think BIG.

Pick three goals you have and, for each one, make a list of what you need to put in place now in order to hit the ground running in 2020. By doing so, your foresight enhances the possibility of success in meeting your goals.

A New Decade

A friend sent an email today and in it she referenced the new decade we will soon be entering. It startled me. I knew 2020 was coming but had not thought about the start of a new decade.

2020 can be a marker for you. How did the last decade go? What do you want to create in the new decade? That’s something to think about!

What’s The Point?

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 Can You Make Your New Year Bright?

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?
