I can’t believe we’re nearly in February. If your experience is like mine, 2020 has arrived with plenty of gusto, and it hasn’t stopped.
Thankfully, so far it’s been good gusto–I have some exciting client projects on the horizon, and lists of business and personal goals that are keeping me on my toes.
But today, I found myself a bit overwhelmed. How am I going to achieve all these goals and reach the milestones…while staying present and sane?
I looked to one of my writing, marketing, and overall human mentors, Ann Handley, for advice.
Thankfully I found just what I needed in her January 5 newsletter. She wrote the following:
In this glorious new year of 2020… sure, let’s set goals. And optimize the heck out of whatever actually needs optimizing.
But let’s also optimize momentum: Creating space for things to develop more slowly over time is ultimately more fulfilling—and effective.
Let’s ask: Are we applying the right measure of momentum for more meaningful results?”
As we cruise into this new decade, I’m going to be looking for ways to not only set goals but to create space for things to develop more slowly. I invite you to join me.
I promise one thing for sure…slowing down will make for a year with fewer edits!
