Reflection season 2020

Over the past few years, I’ve begun calling the period between Thanksgiving and new year “Reflection Season.”

This is a special time of year for me – one I really look forward to. The days leading up to Thanksgiving serve as a reminder to give thanks – to the people who’ve had a positive impact on my life, to non profit organizations I’m grateful for, and to products and services I love.

The next phase is a slow down of activity at work followed by time off in December. This time is focused entirely on self-care and family.

It is the time I get to ask interesting questions, triage some long overdue admin tasks, prioritize rest, and renew commitments to things that matter. As part of this process, I hope to reflect on what I’ve learn this year and synthesize these lessons in time for 2021.

2020 has been a unique year for all of us. And, if you, like many others, haven’t found time to catch a break and have the luxury to afford it, I hope you’ll prioritize some time at the end of the year for reflection and rest as well.
