Completing The Year with Mike Robbins

December 27th, 2017takethegoodjpg

In this week’s episode, I talk about one of my favorite topics – consciously completing the year.  We often focus so much attention on the new year ahead, that we don’t take the time to bring the current year to a close.  This year has been challenging for many of us – with events in the world and politics, as well as in our personal lives.  For me, 2016 was filled with lots of change, loss, growth, and challenge.

Whether we had a great deal, an awful year, or a mix of both, it can be really powerful and useful to reflect on the year as it comes to an end.  I talk about some of the questions I ask myself and have asked my coaching clients over the years, and share some rituals you can use to bring the year to a close in the most mindful, helpful, and growth-filled way possible.

Key Takeaways:

[1:41] The world has seen a great many challenges in 2016.

[4:01] I have seen many changes in my life this year.

[8:38] Be careful not to rush through completion, to get to the new resolutions of 2017.

[10:05] The Hoffman Process Retreat reminded me to take the time to reflect and look within.

[15:04] Make a list of what you are proud of, and grateful for, and your challenges from 2016.

[18:42] Answer completion and creation questions, to help us acknowledge the truth of what happened.

[21:02] Take the good, leave the bad, and be grateful for all of it.

[21:55] Pain is part of the human experience. Suffering is optional.

[25:49] The powerful opportunity to complete 2016 in a ritualistic way.
