It’ll all be over soon, and before you know it the New Year will be upon us. A time of great promise, and also a moment when plans (if they are in place), get a big boost from the natural energy that’s floating around (sorry, I couldn’t think of a better way to say it).

As you know, “Fortune favours the prepared mind”, so maybe this would be a good time to begin to prepare a New Year Plan. We, our relationships and our communities can all benefit from regular maintenance. Here is a list of suggestions for things you might like to consider (or reject… think about it).

Take it easy and don’t over-commit. There are nine ideas so why not spread them through the year. For example, pop them into that lovely new diary that you recently got:

  • Repair a damaged relationship
  • Change an out-of-date habit
  • Replace a routine that no longer works
  • Refurbish your image
  • Renovate a personal regime
  • Inspect your values for cracks
  • Upgrade your thinking habits
  • Remove clutter (physically and metaphorically)
  • Carry out a regular ‘survey of self’.

Because the road to heaven is paved with good intentions, I’ll send out a reminder link early in the New Year. Have fun!

Why Can’t I Help Myself When I Hear a Question?

We can become powerless in the face of the questions we are asked. Why is this? What provokes us to unthinkingly accept that a question MUST be answered, then and there, just because it is a question?

Well formed questions are a powerful and delightful thing. Badly formed ones are often the last resort of bigots and bamboozlers.

Even when its not that serious, we let ourselves down when we use questions carelessly.
