Don’t tell me your priorities. Show me your calendar. ~ Shane Parrish
This year was exceptional, but some of the ways I reacted to the pandemic, social and political crises, and general disruption have now become habits. Some of them good, others need to change!
In 2020 I spent way more time on Twitter than I ever did before, doom scrolling mostly. That’s something I definitely need to stop doing.
In 2020 I spent way more time outside. In part, because it was the only way to see my friends safely, but regardless of why, it’s a habit I want to continue.
If you’ve been around here for a while, you may know that I’m not a huge fan of “New Year’s Resolutions,” but I am a fan of taking time to look back on the year and make changes.
This year I’m trying some new questions:
- Where do I want to stop spending time? What am I spending time on that’s not producing joy or money?
- Where do I want to start spending time? Where do I suspect that there is more joy and money?
- What is just right? What do I want to keep doing?
- What did I learn this year that I don’t want to forget?
I’d love to hear where those questions take you. If you spend time with them, hit reply and let me know what came from that.
