Year-ends and me

Datum: 2010-12-31 10:18

Today, this year ends and tomor­row begins a new.

When my tem­po is high in work peri­ods dur­ing the year, I like to clar­i­fy and define my projects and next steps in detail. When I am on hol­i­day (like right now), I pre­fer to relax also from that. These days, I veg­e­tate and all the impres­sions that have been whirling around all autumn sink to the bot­tom and the sight is clear.

Year-ends fas­ci­nates me. They are a human con­struc­tion and at the same time, it seems to me nat­ur­al to once a year look back­wards and for­wards in a tru­ly larg­er perspective.

Last year, I for­mu­lat­ed three key words for me and my busi­ness in 2010. I have had the key­words vis­i­ble up on my office wall all year and I have often been remind­ed of them. They have helped me decide what is impor­tant and what I should aim for. They have been so valu­able to me that I want to make three new words, for 2011.

I know that dur­ing our New Year cel­e­bra­tion par­ty tonight, we will dis­cuss the upcom­ing year and I think that even more will become evi­dent to me then, so I do not want to nail the three words now.

But, I have a hunch that they will be about focus­ing, remov­ing, dis­card­ing, del­e­gat­ing and specializing. 

I will return in this matter.

Until then I wish you and all the oth­er The Struc­ture blog read­ers a hap­py new year!
