Christmas is nearly here. So a big Thank You is due to all those who work through the busy holiday period, making it less stressful for those of us coordinating parties, presents and people.
Everyone has ideas about how to be productive during busy times. I think there are 3 key principles we should hold on to, especially when we are surrounded by people wanting our attention, our commitment, or our energy. We should:
- Aim to take care of our own needs first, so we can be better at helping others.
- Be patient with people who resist change, or who are only thinking about themselves.
- Choose our battles, so that when we say ‘No’ that answer is heard and respected.
I think these ABC actions help, whether our goal is to thrive during the festive season or make change happen in the year ahead.
Feel free to Like and feedback if you try these principles out and they work for you (or share this post with someone who needs it).
Have a Happy Christmas and a peaceful New Year.
