New Year, New Start, New You?
I don't think there is anyone amongst us who wasn't looking forward to the New Year and we all have big expectations for 2021 but 2020 will forever be 'the year' none of us will forget and my heart goes out to the families who have lost and continue to lose loved ones before their time.
I normally love the turning of one year to the next, and despite what we're continuing to go through, this year is no different. It's like the old saying 'out with the old and in with the new' and I see it as a huge opportunity to reassess, restart and renew. Turning the page on my new diary and putting the first item on my 'to do' list is quite cathartic, especially after the excesses of the past two weeks and the disruption to normal routine. This simple act symbolises the start of a year of productivity, of renewed energy and a belief that we can help make a difference to the founders we support.
But we shouldn't stop there! Work is not the only thing that needs a reset. Now more than ever our health is so important. We need to look after ourselves, for our families, for our teams and for our long-term goals. After all, If we don't look after ourselves who is going to? So, make a promise to yourself now. Take the time to breath, take the time to focus and take the time to ensure you're fit for purpose too. Life is short and this has never been proved more than over the last 12 months.
2021 here we come!
