2016 -Personal Fulfillment during the Holiday Season
I wrote the following newsletter
in November of 2006. It does not seem possible that it was ten
years ago. Surprisingly, the distractions that we were feeling
in 2006 are the same ones that many of us feel in 2016. These
distractions might even be more intense today.
It is my sincere hope that this message will motivate and
inspire you to make a few small changes to ensure that you get
more personal fulfillment during this current season of thanksgiving
Your inspirational quote for this
season of Thanksgiving
and joyous celebration is:
"Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling five
balls in the air. You name them - work, family, health,
friends and spirit and you're keeping all these in the air.
You will soon understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop
it, it will bounce back. But the other four balls - family,
health, friends and spirit are made of glass. If you drop
one of these, they will be irrevocably scuffed, marked, nicked,
damaged or even shattered. They will never be the same.
You must understand that and strive for balance in your
life." From Brian Dyson, CEO of Coca Cola Enterprises from
During this holiday season, ask
yourself the following:
five projects at work can be delegated, delayed, shortened or
holiday traditions do not give me any fulfillment?
new holiday traditions can I put in place that would be
fulfilling and much less work?
is the most important thing about each of the four balls,
family, health, friends and spirit? What can I do to
fully embrace each of these with the least amount of effort?
I had only one gift to give to every important person in my
life and that gift was my words, what would I say to each of
I could take one day with my family and pretend that it was
1950 what would we do to amuse ourselves? (i.e. no electronic
communication devices, no shopping malls, no electronic games
and television, etc.)
would I write in a holiday greeting card to myself explaining
the top five things that I like about myself?
you were to act on your answers, what would that do to your
fulfillment during this season of Thanksgiving
and joyous celebration? Congratulations, you have taken
the first step to deriving
results from within.
