Leadership Insights #15: Take Time to Reflect On the Past Year and Dream About the Year Ahead

Published 6 months ago • 4 min read

Hello friends and colleagues!

Goodbye, 2023! I've had my share of ups and downs, from fighting Lyme disease and helping a close friend through tough times to starting up the TruPotential Group. It's been quite the ride, and honestly, I'm pretty proud of what I've managed to pull off. I'm not trying to brag—I just think it's good to give ourselves a pat on the back now and then.

This year was a real learning curve for me. It pushed me into some scary places, but I had great people around me to help me through. And looking back, I know that digging deep to find and live by my purpose is what got me here.

I'm usually quick to cheer on everyone else's wins, but now I'm learning to celebrate my own a bit more. How about you? What are you proud of this year? We've put together a short questionnaire to help you think about the big moments of 2023. Share your top three with us! Everyone who does will get a chance to win a free 30-minute executive coaching session to tackle your biggest business or leadership challenge.

Let's close out this year by remembering all the good stuff and gearing up for what's next.

Can't wait to hear what you've got to share!

-Erin Robison,
Owner/Founder TruPotential Group

What are your top 3?

We are big believers in learning through honest reflection. It's the way we grow. Personally, we are setting aside a few hours this week to do a thorough annual review and planning session for the coming year. But we wanted to give you a concise version that is hopefully helpful and fun! Selfishly, we'd love to see your answers, and of course, we will share our own. But there's also a bonus! All submissions will go into a drawing for a free 30 minute consultation with Erin or Don! So, it's a win, win, win!

The Meaning of Life?

Want to live in a directed, resolute way? To always know why you’re doing what you’re doing? There’s a simple way to make your dreams come true: Go find the meaning of life! Read the full article here by happiness expert, Arthur C. Brooks, but basically, you can assess your life along three dimensions, which the psychologists Frank Martela and Michael F. Steger defined in The Journal of Positive Psychology in 2016:

  • Coherence: how events fit together. This is an understanding that things happen in your life for a reason. That doesn’t necessarily mean you can fit new developments into your narrative the moment they happen, but you usually are able to do so afterward, so you have faith that you eventually will.
  • Purpose: the existence of goals and aims. This is the belief that you are alive in order to do something. Think of purpose as your personal mission statement, such as “the purpose of my life is to share the secrets to happiness” or “I am here to spread love abundantly.”
  • Significance: life’s inherent value. This is the sense that your life matters. If you have high levels of significance, you’re confident that the world would be a tiny bit—or perhaps a lot—poorer if you didn’t exist.

We hope this helps as you think ahead to your dreams and goals in 2024!

A big shout-out to Nikola Jokić of the Denver Nuggets; this man absolutely fascinates me. There’s something about the way he behaves on and off the court that I deeply admire and respect. Watching him during interviews, I find myself completely engaged, absorbing every single word he says. Keep in mind, he speaks very few words, and that’s one of the things I respect so much about him as a player and a leader. I have become a basketball fan because of the Denver Nuggets. I admire how true...

I have not been out much over the last few weeks, other than to physical therapy appointments, but I am very grateful to live in such a beautiful place. Pictured above is an unfiltered sunset view from my bedroom which has become a sanctuary for healing, reading, and writing. I know that the renewed strength I desire for my knee and body in the future is contingent on my discipline and consistency today. PT and rest are vital. There are many days when I'm tempted to push ahead with activity...
