I was going to write an email to go out last week.
Spoiler alert: it didn’t happen. I was having too much fun playing games and hanging with the family.
I felt bad about skipping a week.
Meanwhile, the majority of you were drinking eggnog and wrapping presents, and if you were in your inboxes, you were wading through more sales emails than you cared to count…and you probably didn’t even notice I wasn’t there.
And it made me think….
How often do I get all urgent about things that aren’t a big deal at the end of the day?
Do I beat myself up about missing milestones and goals and deadlines I made by myself, for myself, that might not have been realistic in the first place?
If you’re anything like me, here’s official permission to skip some things that are bugging you – if they aren’t moving you towards your biggest goals, making you money, or serving your customers, maybe the world can live without them for a minute.
And as you’re thinking about 2020, it might be worth thinking about what you can remove as much as you think about what you can add.
Wishing you the Happiest New Year!
P.S. It’s the last day of the year, and the last day of the decade. As we all look back over the past ten years and dream about the new decade we’re about to start, I hope you’re feeling so much hope and anticipation. We have many things to be grateful for.
