Late in February, my partner, Jacky, and I brainstormed and presented a workshop called A Clearer Vision. When the participants assembled for the workshop at a local restaurant, nearly everyone said they were looking forward to a fantastic 2020 because they were glad to be done with 2019. Imagine their surprise when the first exercise we walked them through was to look back into 2019! The idea was that they take note of the “wins” in 2019—the little things that had brought them joy. Most sat there staring at their notebooks for a bit before bending in to start writing. As participants left the workshop a few hours later, every single person admitted how surprised they were at the number of good things that happened in the previous year.
I have heard many people say that the shutdown period we are finally emerging from has proven an opportunity for them, and I wholeheartedly agree. For the very first time in my life, I stopped working. I stopped hopping out of bed at 5:30 am. I slept late and spent every day possible in the woods. It felt good, but more than that, it became a chance to re-vision what I desire for myself and what I would like to accomplish in my work moving forward, which brings me to you!
