For the beginning of 2013, let’s keep it simple. How do we move forward into the new year without getting bogged down in unrealistic expectations and hyper plans for the months ahead?
I’ll be referring to my book, Simple Acts of Moving Forward, but also will try to generate even more ideas for moving forward in ways that are positive, hopeful—and not overwhelming.
But first, let’s think about what gets in the way of moving forward. What should we look out for? For me, it’s the temptation to plan way too much and get overwhelmed before I’ve even begun. Another thing that gets in my way is being my own worst critic; it’s hard to get better at something when there’s this annoying voice (mine) criticizing my every move.
How about you, DDF community? What gets in the way of moving forward?
