What are you doing?

reflect
verb
turn one’s thoughts (back), fix the mind or attention, ponder, meditate; employ reflection.

1 July marks the beginning of the second half of the year, the third quarter and the start of a new financial year.
 
That’s reason enough to pause and ask yourself:

  1. How am I showing up in my role? and what is the evidence for my thinking this?
  2. What are my priorities for the rest of this year — not my wishlist, not my rolling to-do list, not my ‘what I think I should do’ list, but my priorities?
  3. What do I need to let go of — for good, no messing around this time?

 

TIP: change your environment and speak your answers out loud to generate insights and enhance this reflection practice.

You can go for a walk with headphones — with or without your phone ;) — because just talking to yourself can be a helpful way to think through ideas. 

You can also write this down — but if you do, make yourself use longhand as if you were writing a letter. Why? Because the ways you put context around your thoughts and create connections between ideas can reveal much to you about what's important and why.

What will you commit to change to enhance your resilience, productivity and reputation in the second half of this year?
 
Conversation is where it all happens!
Would you like to have a conversation about YOU?
I’m holding time in my diary next week to do just that with some of you, my valued client community.
