Make it a R-E-A-L Holiday Season
It's time again to reflect on the challenges
and successes of 2005
We've all heard the saying, "Time flies when you're having fun". As we get older, we realize that time flies whether we're having fun or not.
The holiday season is important to me. Even though it's a hectic time of year, it's also a time for family, for friends—and for reflection.
Consider making it a R-E-A-L Holiday Season:
I keep an ongoing "chronofile" with a list of events, goals, challenges, current events, notations, etc. This makes it easy for me to review this trip around the sun.
You may not see the value of everything that's happened in your life right now, but they most likely happened for a reason. Even though those reasons may be obscure at this moment, give thanks anyway.
Life is lived forward but only understood backwards. Most of the funny stories we tell about ourselves were once painful. If we're going to laugh about it later, we might as well laugh about it now.
The tragedy is not in making mistakes, but rather in repeating them. Burn your learnings deep into your consciousness. Your life will become richer with each passing year.
I urge you to invest in this process and reap the rewards.
Editor's Note: I highly recommend a valuable tool to help you evaluate the year just ending and prepare for the New Year.
The 101 Best Year-End Questions plus 101 Best New Year Questions: over 200 questions to help you make this year your most exceptional yet. Going through this process will help you examine the last 12 months and prepare you for making the best choices for the months ahead.
It'll cost you less than the price of a movie (free for Gold Members) and what it will contribute is invaluable. http://successnet.org/101quest.htm
