Happy New Month!
I’m willing to bet that a lot of people had their plans disrupted in the last few months. That’s okay – if you’re like me, you’ve been focusing on survival and adaptability, bending so you don’t break. Resiliency is a good trait to practice, and there’s no time like the present.
I’m happy to say I accomplished my April resolution, which was to survive until May. Now that I feel like I have some of my footing back, I’m ready to engage with a new, more ambitious resolution for this month.
I am surrounded by geniuses – the people I interact with in my job and in the channels that run outward from that job are all fantastic experts in various fields. What’s more, those fields are often very valuable to me and those people are often giving away that value left and right. They’re writing blogs and articles, doing webinars, offering pro bono services.
Despite this, I’m often so wrapped up in what I’m doing (even those same things!) that I don’t appreciate that value flowing all around me, and struggle with the very problems they’re trying to solve.
So my resolution for May is to take a deep breath and dive into the sea of genius all around me. To let people help me that want to. It’s more challenging than it might seem for me to do this – seeking help, even accepting help, has never been my strong suit. But that’s why it’s a resolution.
I wish you all the best of luck with yours!
