TRIPLE III TIME: Christmas…New Year…Already?? PART 2

new iii logo onlyBy the time you read this all New Year celebrations will have taken place and the task of getting back into a regular life/work routine is patiently waiting for you.  So as promised, I am ready to share my “Something To Look Forward To!” TOP 10 for 2019.

Here we go:

  1. Keep a weekly “GOOD STUFF” Journal. Each week try to write down maybe 3 short, mini-sentences that recall only 3 good things that occurred during the week.  (In December you will enjoy going back!)
  2. Teach someone…something unique…from you. You will smile every time you realize that it helped them.
  3. Pick a time or times where you take a stand against “hi-tech-ness”. Read a real book, write a real letter or just go and visit someone.
  4. Rekindle your internal sense of creativity and imagination. Paint, build, plant, write, sing, play a musical instrument…you know what I mean.
  5. Draft a simple but relevant new IDEA for your workplace…and share it.
  6. Ask an older person: “What was the coolest thing you did during your lifetime?” (What would you say?)
  7. Don’t wait to be assigned a new or different task/responsibility at work…STEP UP.
  8. Take time to help someone who is struggling to “recycle” themselves in the world-of-work.
  9. Look forward to the time when friends/colleagues come to you to talk about an issue…because they know you are a good listener.
  10. During the year take the time to look in the mirror and ask: “WHAT DO I WANT?” (It often is the toughest question to answer.)

I hope this special TOP 10 generates “Something To Look Forward To!’ thoughts…and hopefully many 2019 more.
