I have this thing about being on the floor when I need to sort something creative out. Yesterday afternoon I pulled up a piece of carpet in my Hue and Style® HQ. I had meaningful work to do.
I was sorting out what I'll be teaching to my advanced mentorship clients next week to prepare for the new year. I thought I would teach the same lesson we did last year, but it doesn't seem to fit after this 2020-ness of the year.
I decided to resurrect the "teach" I did two Decembers ago. It's about honing in on the verbs - the doing words - that move the way we live out our days. It then focuses on the adjectives - the "-ly" words - that influence how we carry out those doing words. It worked so darn well for my clients' clarity and their 2019 success, I'm going to teach it again with a twist!
This "teach" felt right.
If there is one thing that 2020 taught us all, it's:
Pay attention to how you do something.
It's how you'll do everything.
Think over your last year. (Ain't it the truth?)
After I came to this conclusion on the success lesson to teach, I felt relief - always a sign that I got the "whispered lesson" in the present moment. (I know I keep mentioning Whispered Lessons. It's a way to see your life for growth I share in Show Up Confident.)
Then, I uncrossed my legs, picked myself up, and to made lunch. I was done my meaningful work for the day. That always offers a sense of relief too.
