The coming of the end of the year always brings out a spirit of contemplation in me—questions about what we are really doing here and why. But more than that, the end of the year invites some solitude. When I have space for this solitude, there are a few favorite things I listen to, consider, and read. I share them below in case they open up for you some space and time to reflect as you head into the New Year.
What do all of these things have in common? The tension between beauty, stillness, searching, and love. There are times in our lives when there is quiet, and we get to invite questions of what matters most, what we love, and who we love. And there are times to think about what we owe each other, of how we must lean into knowing and doing better. This time of year invites us to consider these things, both the I and the We, the Me and the Us. It invites us to consider impact from the inside–out.
What impact do you want to make in yourself and for the world in 2024?
The old model of problem-solving doesn’t work. It relies on a few people to have all the answers. Not only is it putting too much weight on your own shoulders, it’s stifling your team and holding your organization back.
Co-creating solutions is the paradigm shift we’ve seen breathe new life into impact-driven organizations time and time again. And it’s more accessible than you think it is.
