EMPOWERED LEADERS - Reflecting & Letting Go

Published 2 months ago • 1 min read

Welcome Back, Empowered Leader.

I'm so glad you're here, Reader!

Reflection - Gratitude & Letting Go

2023 isn't over yet! Let's not rush the end of the year - time flies ⏱️🚀 fast enough already, Reader.

In the last newsletter, we discussed slowing down... so while your calendar is full of social events for the holidays, I hope that you find moments - however small - to stop, to breathe, to just be. 🧘

As we countdown to the beginning of 2024, let us take a moment to reflect 🪞 on 2023.

Reflect with gratitude on the good fortunes that smiled upon you. Recognize just how much you have grown over the year - your accomplishments, your learnings, your moments of self care.

At the same time, take notice of areas where you stalled or faltered. 😩 Are you able to acknowledge any sources or distractions that contributed to these moments?

Utilize these realizations to guide you moving into the new year... call it the "What I'm Leaving Behind in 2023" List!

  • Perhaps you are ready to reduce your doom scrolling to be more present in 2024?
  • Will you learn to "let go" by delegating or giving up more control in 2024?
  • Or you've decided to stop letting others impact your emotions in 2024?
  • Are you going to learn to say "no" and/or set boundaries in 2024?
  • Maybe you will find more time to unplug in 2024?

Whatever you decide to leave behind in 2023, it is for you alone to decide.

What am I leaving behind in 2023?

  • I'm letting go of "busy". I am ready to acknowledge & embrace that busy for me does not equal being productive!
  • I also want to stop spending so much time "in my head". My left brain is my superpower... and my nemesis! So I'm going to start building in dedicated time to exist in my other modalities.

Welcome Back, Empowered Leader, I'm so glad you're here, Reader! The Winter Blues Are you going through a case of the Winter Blah's? Good thing that groundhog saw his shadow... that means Spring is almost here! Whether it is the cold weather, gray skies, or yet another round of sinus congestion, Winter can play havoc with our health, mood and energy levels. As a leader, you may find it more difficult lately to handle your own family's mood changes, let alone those of everyone at work,...

Welcome Back, Empowered Leader, I'm so glad you're here, Reader! Bored Out" You've heard of "burned out", but have you heard of "bored out", Reader?

Similarly, Gartner surveyed 3,500 employees and found that only 31% said they were engaged, enthusiastic, & energized by their work. Gartner suggested that this means the other 69% are languishing,...

Welcome Back, Empowered Leader, I'm so glad you're here, Reader! Fresh Start 🌱 Do you view January as a fresh start as so many do when celebrating the New Year? It may or may not be the start of your company's fiscal year, but as we turn to a fresh calendar with a new year printed upon it, it's easy to use this time of year to welcome the new and discard the old. Welcoming the New - Now is the time to consider if you & your team have any new goals or business priorities of focus for 2024. You...
