This time of year, it’s so easy to get caught up in the busyness, to keep rushing, to think that hectic and frantic are the signs of the season. Maybe it’s no surprise that colds and flus seem to be a part of the mix–it’s one way to “force” yourself to slow down a little bit!
Consider this a reminder that you can make choices. You can decide what you keep doing. You can decide what is most important to you, and politely say no to the rest.
Really, you can.
(And you can even do it before you wipe out and have to say no to all of it!)

Kel and I are going to be offline as much as we can through the end of the year–spending time with our families, planning for next year, and yes…slowing down and working on getting well. (You had to know that I was speaking about the cold/flu thing from experience, right?)
Next week we’ll share Kel’s Getting Started series, which she originally posted on The Dao of Doing. Even if you have read it before, it’s a good exercise to do once a year. I know I’m not the same person I was a year ago…you probably aren’t either. I hope you’ll join me in doing these simple but important steps.
We also invite you to join us in our first 30 Day Focus workshop, which begins January 2. Get clear on your values for 2013, and build a solid foundation for the life you’ve been longing to create. 30 days of focus for just $30!
Happy Holidays, Dear Readers!
