This is one of my favourite parts of December: looking back at the year and picking out the greatest lessons and learnings. This year of course was a *very* different year, so there were many!
2020 was definitely a challenging year. But on balance, it wasn’t a bad year.
I learned a lot!
About myself, about my business, and about what both need, and what they can do without.
My Word of the Year for 2020 was Growth. And I intended and hoped to have personal and professional growth this year. Boy did I! It was almost impossible not to have personal growth in a year that challenged us all so much. I was fortunate to have professional growth as well, something that took more dedication, commitment and energy than I ever would have imagined.
So here we go, my favourite kind of list, my Year in Review!
Word of the Year: Growth
Motto of the Year: Live your own story
Best Book: Emotional Agility by Susan David
Best Decision: Working with a Coach Supervisor to help me grow my skill set and awareness as a coach
Best Discovery: Plant-based eating
Best Investment: Hiring a business coach to help me guide my business through the pandemic
Best Moment: My mum getting the all-clear from cancer
Best Podcast for work: Focus on This
Best Podcast to binge: Catch & Kill
Best Vacation: 3 weeks at the North Sea in August – the first time we’ve had 3 weeks off since our honeymoon in 2002
Happiest Moment: Spending 5 days on a family cycling trip
Hardest Lesson: There is no such thing as an overnight success
Greatest Lesson: Sometimes not giving up is the biggest step forwards!
2020 was not the year I anticipated, but it was a year that challenged me greatly to bring out the best in myself, to conquer some limiting beliefs, and to continually recommit to my values and goals.
