At year’s end, I intend to unplug and go off the grid.
A bit of R & R if you will.
Reflect and recharge.

So I’m curious…
Do you schedule intentional personal yearly reviews?
“Experience isn’t the best teacher. Evaluated experience is”
– John Maxwell
Are you aware what fills your tank?
“I put zero weight into anyone’s opinion about me because I know exactly who I am.
Can you say the same?”
– Gary Vaynerchuk
Share in the comments the activities that you undertake at year’s end for R & R.
I trust that as you and I sow R & R at the end of 2017 that it will set up our success for 2018 and also increase our fulfilment & service in the new year.
Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year to you and yours!
One of the most important conversations that I will have today will be between my own ears.
The belief stronghold of “impossibility” is worth exploring.
Impossible def. hasn’t occurred, existed, or been done YET. The unfamiliar.
“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”
― Muhammad Ali
I don’t know about you but I never imagined a day where the following were reality:
Australians perform first “dead heart” transplants
Uber Elevate could offer flying ride service in the next 3 years!!
On the outside, it seems that we are living as The Jetsons and advances are snowballing faster than ever before.
If impossibility is potential, what am I willing to investigate in the “rules” that I have created inside my own head?
What seems impossible is unfamiliar.
Wisdom: domain, state or condition of being wise.
Knowledge is of no value unless you put it into practice
– Anton Chekhov
Stepping out of the traffic to reflect is a dividend producing exercise.
Some say experience is the best teacher.
My mentor John C Maxwell says that evaluated experience is the best teacher.
Evaluation of my OWN life recognises “the walk” (results/fruit) of “the talk” (information/knowledge).
Wisdom is applied knowledge producing order, peace and blessing.
Folly produces chaos, falling apart and people “at each other’s throats”.
Evaluation brings opportunity to adjust.
Who can count the stars?
A humbling experience.
