Welcome to the end – or is it just the beginning?
I honestly cannot believe we are here at week 52 of “52 weeks to simplify your life”.
Thank you for being here this year
I want to thank every single person who has read along, shared their thoughts and stories in blog posts, written comments (oh especially you!), shared posts via social media or emailed me to chat about SYL. You all made this work for me when I had my own days and weeks where I too wanted to take time off. It can be very draining making changes, committing to working on your life, being honest with yourself, reflecting and taking action.
Start where you are and go at your own pace
For those who wanted to participate, but did not – remember you can start any time, work on this at your own pace, turn it into whatever you want or need it to be. Know 100% that it is not a prescription for change, but rather a prompting. The aim was to give you food for thought, set challenges and let you take yourself where you know you need to go.
Review and re-set goals
If your goals continued to be set too broadly or simply in too great a number dial things back and really consider the slow approach I emphasized. While it is great to set the greater overarching goals it is important to break them down and focus on one step at a time, building to your goals. Better to make one change per month (or even slower) and have it stick, be meaningful and attainable than charge out the gate making five changes and burn out in frustration. Trust that the end results will be there. Even one great change in a year is more effective than the guns blazing approach. Know your resources and your purpose. Make your plans, set your priorities and know you deserve what you are seeking!
Feedback for me please
I would appreciate some feedback from those of you who read my posts and / or participated (whether on your own or via blogging). My hope is to turn this material into book form somehow (ebook or other) in a way that is easily used and accessed. In order to do that I would love to learn how you felt about the material and what you liked / disliked. If you have a few minutes I would be so grateful if you would fill in this survey for me – I promise it is only 4 questions and would make a big difference to me.
For those who don’t fill in the short survey I would love it if you at least left me a comment and tell me one change you made this year that simplified your life.
Find your simple,
