As I write this in December, I’m listening to a great Spotify playlist for my star sign (the hippie in me never fades) and getting ready to wrap up for the year. As you read this, you’ve already welcomed the new year and no doubt you’ve thought about or have set your goals for the new year. I recently watched an ABC interview with performance coach Andrew May that made me stop and think. He said that psychology studies have found “That the whole obsession with goal setting isn’t making people happy.” Instead, we should adopt the concept of ‘accomplishment focus’. Still setting goals but more importantly, taking time to reflect on and celebrate the things we’ve done and achieved over the past twelve months. Or, indeed, the past decade. There are six core pillars to consider: work / career, money, relationships, health and fitness, learning / development, hobbies, passion and fun. That’s challenging to do, but the thing is, it doesn’t need to mean we’ve accomplished some fantastic feat. I thought to myself, what have I done differently? I can celebrate starting my veggie patch. I can celebrate my strong relationships with my family, friends and colleagues. I can celebrate my personal development in many new areas of my career. I can celebrate the fact that we evolved DUO’s look and frequency and continue to introduce you to exciting and (sometimes) larger-than-life local characters. And now I can think more clearly about what’s important to me and the goals I’m likely to set. Welcome to the new decade! I hope it’s a happy one for you and your loved ones.
