These end-of-the-year reflection articles are a favorite of mine to write. It is such a fun experience to sit down and really think back on the year – the events we hosted and attended, the people we met and hired, the clients we onboard and served, the partners we worked and grew up with, the milestones we reached and celebrated. All the creation that can happen in one year fascinates me every time I sit down to write these. It is important to do something like this, to reflect and celebrate. In fact, I just published a Creating Abundance Reflection Journal. The journal is made as a companion to my book, “Insights Into Creating Abundance” but is also a stand-alone tool meant to create a structure in your life to reflect on what you are up to, where you want to go, and who you want to be. Be sure to check it out on Amazon or send me an email, and I’ll ensure it gets shipped to you at no cost.
Can you imagine this world without people? If you take away people, there’s no life. Life only happens because of and through people. People create life and we are not meant to live this life alone. We are meant to live in communities full of happiness, connection, and support. In the movie “Passenger”, Jim awakens Aurora after his pod malfunctions because he can’t bear the thought of living the rest of his life in isolation. We all need the feeling of inner connection with other human beings. People are the reason that life exists. They should always come first.
There were many things about 2020 that were difficult. The COVID pandemic hit every country and every community, and it has changed the way we think and the way we do things in this world. In March, it was business as usual, and then the pandemic came and forced us to pivot and adjust in many ways. And though I don't want to overlook all the challenges and suffering that this year has brought, when I look back, 2020 was the year that made In Time Tec a more nimble, flexible, and agile company.
