So that was 2017. How has it prepared you for 2018?
Because it will have, whether you know it or not.
Life involves a lot of discovering that we have more to give than we often imagine. The difficult pat is bringing it out.
There comes a natural end to this none of us will escape. No-one wants to arrive at this point and for it to be said, “They could have given more.”
Yet for a thousand and one different reasons, we hold back. But take who we are further and not only will 2018 be quite an adventure but 2019 will be even more so.
It’s like being in business, the business of being the best we can be. (There’s a natural connection between life and business.)
Seth Godin reminds us that the best businesses exist for others just like people:
‘Kindness ratchets up. It leads to more kindness. It can create trust and openness and truth and enthusiasm and patience and possibility.
Kindness, in one word, is a business model, an approach to strangers and a platform for growth.
It might take more effort than you were hoping it would, but it’s worth it.’*
