What did you do? What have you created? Most importantly, who have you become?

“We usually overestimate what we think we can accomplish in one year-but we grossly underestimate what we can accomplish in a decade.”-Tony Robbins

At the end of another year I offer some ideas for examination to assess what you’ve done that you wanted to, what you didn’t do that you wanted to, and what your plan is for the coming year. And unique to this year I also offer what you plan to do with the next decade.

Units of time are important punctuation marks. They help us acknowledge the beginnings of things, they help us experience the full existence of life, and surely we all feel the endings.

Most of the time us mortals and unenlightened like to measure the things that our shadow parts utilize to feed our egos-what have we gotten, acquired, amassed, and so forth. These are things like money, possessions, notches in the belt to life’s measurements of social success. I’ve talked about this recently and I talk about it all the time. I point out there’s a difference between focusing on what my ego wants and what my soul wants.

My suggestion is to take a deep inventory and consciously look at what wolf you’re actually feeding. My guess is that like most, you’re feeding both wolves. This is normal. So how can you move some points across the ledger of your soul dollars towards your mission in this life and less about that voracious animal called ego?

Take a second, close your eyes, and think about this question for a few minutes;

How can you exert your precious time and life force to create a world you want to live in?

My opinion is that the heart and soul doesn’t measure in the same way. It’s more elusive to recognize when you’re on track and when you’re not. The key is higher consciousness (isn’t it always), that is how we can see… and feel, when we’re on track.

If you don’t know why you’re walking this earth and you don’t know what your superpower(s) is/are and you don’t fully recognize how precious your time is and you have no vision for how you truly want to spend that time, you’re lost.

Plenty of us are living our lives and making choices where we’re simply cleaning up all the messes we make rather than truly helping others and having a positive impact.

The opportunity:

What is your biggest failure this year?

What did you want to accomplish in the last ten years that you didn’t?

What is your greatest celebration in 2019?

What are you most proud of staying committed to from 2010 to 2020?

What is the one thing you’re leaving behind and not bringing into the next year and/or decade?

Thanks for your time this year, have a great day and a great weekend.
