Year-ends provide a good excuse for review, reflection and redirection. We become aware of the passing of time more deeply and hence tend to take stock and re-evaluate our current ways. However, most reactive New Year Resolutions run out of steam in a few weeks and we fall back into old patterns. To truly make … Continue reading 22 Journalling Prompts/Clearings To Enable A Fresh Start
Go Slowly, Reach Early.
In one of my Tai Chi classes, Sifu George kept reminding us all to slow down. He said that if you are going slow enough you will catch your errors and take remedial action before you commit them.
