What is in Your Top 10 For 2021?


What is in Your Top 10 For 2021?

"Sometimes, you have to look back in order to understand the things that lie ahead." – Yvonne Woon

Before we jump into the new year, I want to take a moment to do one more reflection on 2021. I am sure you have seen your fair share of Top 10 Lists lately (Top 10 Movies of the Year, Top 10 Artists of the Year, Top 10 Stocks to Buy, Top 10 Predictions for the Future, etc.). I want to change things up and challenge you to create your own Personal Top 10 List for the past year.

As you prepare your Top 10 List, keep these questions in mind:

  • What were your highlights? Moments that made you come alive or changed the way you think?
  • What books, movies, shows, places, or anything for that matter, delighted you? Inspired you?
  • What were you grateful for? What lessons did you learn?

Now find yourself a quiet spot and start reflecting. And to give you a spark to get things started, here's my Top 5:

5. Adventure. One of my core values is adventure, and this year did not offer up too many opportunities to travel (2022 is a different story, stay tuned). However, I want to reflect on how the local adventures became even more precious and exciting. A simple trip to a museum, the city, the mountains, or the beach seemed magical.

4. Books. I have read a lot of incredible books this year, and it is hard to choose the few that impacted me most, but if I am hard-pressed: Think Again (Adam Grant)Master Mentors (Scott Miller)The Long Game (Dorie Clark)The Beautiful Business (Steven Morris)Flux (April Rinne)Unleashed (Rick & Amy Simmons)From Start-Up to Grown-Up (Alisa Cohn)

3. Campfire. It has been a year and a half since I launched my podcast, The Virtual Campfire (150+ episodes), and I am honored and humbled by what has been uncovered. My incredible guests trusted me with their stories and shared insights that not only impacted me but so many others. I am grateful to be able to share their brilliance with my listeners. I am reminded that our stories CAN impact so many lives; we just need to have the courage to share them!

2. Creating. I embraced my creative edge this year in many ways. Through writing, creating experiences, and co-creating inspiring conversations that changed lives. One of the creative projects I am particularly proud of is my book, Climbing The Right Mountain: Navigating the Journey to An Inspired Life. I never thought this was something I could do, and now, as I write this post, I am working on my second book!

1. Believers! You know who you are. My family, my clients, podcast guests, thought partners, coaches, and of course YOU. We all need people to believe in us when we doubt ourselves, to see us when we don't feel seen. Thank you for your support!
