Embrace the full stop: Welcoming new beginnings this festive season

Wishing you a Happy Christmas, a merry festive season, and an awesome New Year.

I want to leave you with something I shared last year.

In my conversations, I often use the phrase 'full stop, new sentence' to smoothly transition to a different topic. Similarly, 'full stop, new paragraph' indicates shifting to a new subject.

It's a subtle and effective way to guide our discussions in fresh directions.

For the leaders out there - this is important.

The concept of a 'full stop' is a part of my daily conversations and key in my professional work with leaders and teams.

My role involves facilitating change - guiding people and groups to stop old habits that aren't helpful and embracing new methods and perspectives.

It's about marking a full stop and starting new ways of being.

As we approach December 31, let's consider the full stop not as an end but as the beginning of a 'new chapter' or a completely 'new book'.

  1. What does 2024 hold in store for you?
  2. Which new skills are you aiming to acquire?
  3. What fresh narratives will you be telling yourself?
  4. What habits or actions do you need to halt?
  5. What new endeavours should you undertake?
  6. And what successful practices will you carry forward into the new year?

 

My word and focus next year is 'EXPERIMENT', so I'll be embracing the full stop even more.

I look forward to staying in touch during 2024.

Take care.
