2015: The Final Chapter

I can feel we are in the “final chapter” of the year.

And if I forget for a moment, all I need to do is to listen to the radio, hear or read a news report or walk into any shop and I am reminded that the frenzy of Christmas is definitely upon us.

Today, I finally succumbed and took my first step towards Christmas.


Yes. I made the grand purchase of some wrapping paper and glitter tape.

I am ridiculously excited at the idea of glitter tape!

But perhaps I had better begin to turn my mind to the gifts that might be wrapped inside the paper that would be secured by the magic of glitter tape 🙂

It would be easy to simply cruise on in towards Christmas, and declare 2015 done.

After all, there are only 5 full weeks of work before Christmas and only 4 weeks until the kids finish school.

And yet, there are 5 full weeks of work before the Christmas break. And 4 weeks before the kids finish school. There is so much more that could be done before this year ends.

We are part way through the renovations of our garage area.


Tyben’s room to be has a full installed window, and we are now ready for the first round of electrical work, and then wall sheeting can go up!

For all of this year, I have been working on some big projects for work. Some would have been able to work harder and faster. But it seems I am not of the “harder and faster” mode.

I have to admit, that when I went to the WeArePodcast event last weekend on the Gold Coast, I was so relieved when I heard Robert Gerrish speak.

Robert Gerrish is the founder of Flying Solo. A community of some 70-80,000 solo and micro business owners. That is no small achievement.

My heart skipped a beat when I heard Robert say that there is really no need to rush.

That sometimes it is good to let things take time.

In our instant access world it is easy to be seduced by bigger, faster and louder.

When sometimes what we need most, is a quiet moment, to stay connected with our true selves. To tell our true stories, and to make real connections with other people.

I was blessed to be able to sit in a Mastermind setting with presenters from the event, including Robert Gerrish and Adam Houlahan.


Can you tell that I was pretty happy with the suggestions and feedback from these legends?

And so, I take my true self into the final chapter of 2015.

I will not hit cruise and presume that the year is done.

I will actively press on with the projects I have underway, at home and at work. And some of them are big projects. I hope that I can share them with you in 2016!

The final chapter of 2015 deserves loving attention.

What could your final chapter of 2015 contain?
