Join the Biz Diva in Celebrating All “Good Things” in 2015
A couple of years ago, about this time, I was perusing Facebook and one of my colleagues posted a picture of two jars, one with her name and one with her husband’s name. Each jar was labeled “Good Things” and her intention was for both of them to write down all the good things that happen each day so at the end of the year they could look back and take notice. I thought it was a great idea and have decided that 2015 is the year I am going to get onboard with tracking all the Good Things in my life. I have two jars, one for business and one for personal. I am not very good at paying attention to my small wins in either place, hence a reminder for both. I am hoping to get my partner to join me as it will be a connecting experience for us to share them at the end of the year.
A Good Things Jar is a quick and easy way to remember all the positive things in your life. Create your jar, put pen and post-its nearby, and set it in a place where you will see it often. Your jar needs to be visible so you are reminded to take the time to reflect and write things down. We seldom highlight our small wins and the interactions that warm our hearts, the day to day experiences that help us stay our path. Often it is something small that reminds us of all the good things we are grateful for. Consider this one of those practices I talk about that will bring you great benefit with minimal effort.
Start on January 1st with an empty jar. Throughout the year you will write down the good things that happen and deposit them into your jar each day. On December 31st, you get to open your jar and read all the amazing things that you experienced. If you have a partner, spouse or children, considering getting the entire household to do it so you can share and celebrate together.
I invite you to join me in setting up your own jar and collecting your Good Things throughout 2015. I have created a Facebook Page, Biz Diva Good Things Challenge, where you can participate, get support, and share your thoughts, questions, and inspirational moments. You can interact with other women who sign up to create their Good Things Jar and take notice of all the small wins in their lives. Please forward this newsletter to everyone you know who would benefit from tracking their small wins and all good things in 2015.
Are you ready to take up the challenge and join the Biz Diva in documenting all your Good Things in 2015? Join the Facebook group, Biz Diva Good Things Challenge, and get your jar ready to rock and roll because we start on January 1st! See you there!
