As we wind down 2011 we have entered the ‘reflective season’, where due to the structure of the Gregorian calendar and the very long(est) night of the year (in the Northern Hemisphere), we naturally enter a more introspective mood.
Therefore, as we become more contemplative during this time, let’s reflect on our Core Values, both personal and organisational, and identify the gaps or misalignment between these two key areas of our daily existence.
Then start listing or rather prioritise these gaps and only focus on the one of two of the most feasibly achievable misaligned Core Values and develop a plan or incorporate it into your New Year’s resolutions.
If the gap requires coaching or input from people or personal development providers, do something as soon as possible to diarise or follow-up.
Look at utilising some common reminder tools we have available; pen and paper, notes or your mobile device, calendar reminders, or even new Cloud services and Apps, etc. in order to assist your “Oh Yes!” reminder moments later, should now not be the right or appropriate time or place to do something about the Core Value alignment activities you need to take.
…Turning 2012 into Positive Opportunity…
