The Simple Life

Introspect & Execute


There are many things I can say about 2020, but the things I will focus on are the ones I learnt in different angles. Introspection has always been my strong point but it is currently on steroids and I find it hard not to think deeply. I know people who would rather not introspect because it reminds them of what has failed but it invigorates me. Introspection inspires me to look at the challenge, what didn’t work, why it didn’t work and how to move forward.

Introspection wasn’t always so productive because I couldn’t take it to the end of executing. It took time to understand that just thinking about things isn’t that helpful if nothing comes out. Then I discovered that the way to get things done is to think them through, write them down, share them with others. Interestingly, I have added an angle, there are people who need a model with dealing with life, so I share what I have learnt this year.

So here are the things I learnt about myself and life in 2020 and I hope someone else will find inspiration and strength to go on from them.

Self-discovery:

  • I am human and fallible
  • I am responsible
  • I am able & capable
  • I am ENOUGH
  • I am connected
  • I am loved deeply and loveable
  • I am breathtakingly beautiful
  • I am made for more

For Work:

  • Focus is key…it expands everything
  • Not everyone will understand
  • Discipline is the difference
  • Shut up and work…proof cometh
  • Go the extra mile
  • Listen, focus, apply
  • Do it…no one else will
  • Progress not perfection
  • Growth happens in chaos

For Life:

  • Believe and act…walk by faith
  • Be faithful and diligent
  • Let go for real and leave it there
  • Take the step, things will open up
  • Keep learning
  • Know your tribe; build and protect it
  • When you miss people, look for them
  • Do you; Be you…don’t explain
  • Feel free to walk away

Shalom.
