I admire them for some many reasons and I longed for a way to pick their brains. Receiving their recommendations not only gave me a chance to learn, but with each book, I strive to figure out the “why” behind it. Why did they choose this particular book? What was their biggest takeaway and lesson for me?
Reflection is a part of everyday growth, but a particular focus when the New Year comes along. I am no exception -- only this year, I felt something just a little different. My Type A personality thrives on organization, details, and planning-it’s just what I do! So, most of my New Year reflection is focused on how I can be the most efficient version of me and meet (more like exceed) my goals. What can I say, I’m competitive. And, as any controlling, over-achiever would tell you, fear and anxiety somehow always rear their nasty head in the mix. Though, I am firm believer that fear is healthy, so I’m okay with it to some degree. This year however was different. This year I felt something that I haven’t felt in a while…ANTICIPATION!
