December Downshift: 4 Inquiries to Ask to Full the Yr Feeling Clear


Each December, as a private management best-practice, I ask myself 4 inquiries after which alter my private {and professional} selections accordingly. They make an enormous distinction in how I really feel once I start my subsequent 12 months, and the way I replicate and see the 12 months that’s simply been.

Previously decade as I’ve shared this apply with folks – which I name the “December Downshift” – is that whereas the thought of doing it sounds divine, the fact of the tempo and stress in our work, household and end-of-the-year life retains us from doing what the pure world began method again in November – slowing down.

Most of us would emphatically agree that we’d like to:

  • Begin the brand new 12 months feeling clear – mentally & emotionally.
  • Have our dwelling and work area really feel clear and coherent.
  • Create more room for ourselves and solely full what issues most and reflow the remaining to subsequent 12 months – ahh! exhale.
  • Be freed from a number of the relationship drama or misery in our private or skilled relationships that reveals up throughout the holidays, or is hanging out from earlier this 12 months.

However we discover it difficult to go in opposition to the tide of what Clarissa Pinkola Estes aptly termed “the over-culture” – “the dominant and sometimes power-mad tradition we attempt to navigate with out being crushed or over-assimulated into, thereby shedding all our uncommon abilities, our by no means earlier than seen wonders.” 

To go in opposition to such a powerful present of year-end deadlines, household obligations, and the vacation consumption machine, we’d like tremendous powers. One which I really like to use at the moment is the tremendous energy of “harmonic defiance” which I outline as this:


“Harmonic Defiance is selecting to defy the techniques and realities that don’t be just right for you, not by ranting and raging however by doing issues otherwise, in clever ways in which domesticate concord.

Selecting to proactively create new realities by the way you design your life; lead inside your group, neighborhood, and household; and present up in your relationships. You don’t ask for permission. You simply select what’s in concord. And do it.”

Harmonic defiance isn’t about having to do or make some grand international affect, it’s about embracing our energy to create a greater world and higher method of working and dwelling by the alternatives we make in our day after day lives. For instance: selecting to imitate mom nature in December vs. mimicking the over-culture.

I’ve shared under the 4 inquiries, which use the wisdom-led management capability of ‘intuitive considering.’ Intuitive inquiries search knowledge vs. solutions, and so reveal insights we miss if we solely function from our psychological and mental thoughts vs our larger and intuitive thoughts.

Ask and reply these for your self and use them to your group, so you possibly can finish the 12 months feeling good about what you’ve carried out, clear in thoughts and coronary heart, able to step into the brand new 12 months reset.

1. What do I want to finish to set me as much as step into 2022 replenished, reset and open to obtain in my:

  • Skilled life: tasks and objectives
  • Private basis: well being, funds and residential

2. What would I like to let go, launch or clear up earlier than 12 months finish? These are emotional judgements or baggage, relational realities or psychological patterns which are calling for consideration to deliver into coherency or depart behind.

3. What connections do I want to make (new ones or reconnecting to outdated ones) now, and can attain out to earlier than we full 2021?

4. What would really feel good and aligned to re-flow – transfer this into subsequent 12 months, and by doing so launch self-induced stress? Figuring out that I can re-engage with this within the new 12 months.

It helps rather a lot to write down these out after which take easy however mighty actions accordingly. Invite a good friend to do that with you for further accountability. I take advantage of these with my group and in my marriage to create extra supportive relationships and sustainable success throughout.
