Are you enmeshed and fully engaged in your life and work right now? Being so can be a positive state and also, at times, a negative one. You may see yourself as active, vital and committed to your life and work – good for you! What happens, however, when your life and work entangle you in dramas, doubts, fear or uncertainty? At that point, you may want to detach a bit so you can regain your perspective.
Ways to detach include: getting to a place where you are alone, bringing your emotions back in from being all over the place, thinking about what is going on, observing rather than participating, reminding yourself of your values and reaffirming your confidence in yourself.
Detachment empowers you. Balance engagement with detachment and you will be better for it.

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!

What a time you are living in. There is so much confusion, uncertainty, stress and polarity. You don’t really know what’s next, do you? It is useless to pretend that you have control and know what the future will bring. The only way to make it through times like these is to stay close to yourself and what you are feeling and doing.
Take a moment today for some reflection. Note what is happening in your immediate world and the world-at-large. Are you doing ok? Is there anything you need? Taking this time may help you ground in the present and find your way to thrive during these times.

How do you use your quiet days at work?
Do you go at a slower pace? Rush to catch up? Reflect?
Be fully present when you have the gift of a quiet day. Use it well. You deserve it.
Hope that readers in the United States had a great Thanksgiving holiday. Thank you to all of you for reading The Managers Hub!
