Lunar New Year ushers in the Year of the Rooster for 2017. Australia post's gorgeous artwork suggests this represents our confident, fearless, persistent, reliable and resourceful natures. Something tells me, we all need to harness this kind of energy.
Good morning 2016.
Look! There's 12 fresh shiny months stretched out before us. They are all filled with the promise of productivity, purpose and progress.
New year's day is a great day to be reflective about the year ahead. It's not so much about planning, but more about pre-planning.
It's a holiday, so the usual noise of the day to day, go go go, has been hushed.
I like the ideas in this post on mindful.org, with tips on achieving more, by doing less.
I especially liked the idea of applying "MED" to everything.
The “minimum effective dose” (MED) is the lowest dose of a pharmaceutical that spurs a clinically significant change in health or well-being. Look for the MED in everything: work, sleep, meditation, blogging frequency, checking email, school volunteering, homework help, date nights.
May your 2016 be great!
You can see Peter and me sitting in the bottom right in orange. And behind us? That's our team.
