Part 4 of 5 for the January edition of "Converging over Coffee"
We’ve stepped into 2021 proper now, with some staying cautiously optimistic & others all ready to go big to make up for a year that felt lost. But all of us I’m certain wants to give this a good go & have probably at least thought of some version of personal resolutions.
To make the process more powerful, an interesting approach is to make use of Systems elements in how we design these resolutions, in particular recognizing the importance of the family unit. Here’s how.
Doing it in the family setting is a safe way to articulate the things we want to do in the new year. Builds Accountability.
It’s an opportunity to look back on the previous year, talk openly about successes & lessons from that journey & how it prepares us for the coming one. Builds on Progress & Builds Resilience.
The family unit is great for building routine & designing positive habits that can be done together. Creates support to help us keep to resolutions. Builds Consistency.
Finally, seeking new experiences together in any shape & form should be a regular pursuit. Our ability to connect the dots & be inspired is dependent on this. Builds the Creativity needed to overcome hurdles that life puts between us & our goals.
