Where is the clapping

 The sign of adulthood is when you are able to solve your own issues and no one is there to congratulate you!

When you are a child, your parents and society congratulate you for the good and mature things you did.

And this gave you a confidence boost. When you are an adult, literally no one cares besides you.

But that is good. This means you already achieved something great.

Now it is the time to change the dialog. Shift the paradigm of I need clapping and acknowledgement by others, to I am capable and confident to do new things.

This narrative is uncomfortable, because suddenly we are being responsible for all the success and failures we bring upon ourself.

Yet, this is a good sign. If you do something amazing and there is no clapping, it means you are a mature person and you can continue doing great things.

You can be your own cheerleader and occasionally when you do something amazing not only for yourself, but for others, this is the time to share it with the world.

The messy meeting

When you know there will be a messy meeting and there is nothing you can do about it, the best thing to do is to avoid it. Messy people produce messy meetings, and they take the time and the energy of everyone who is part of it. That is why instead of being part of this drama, find a better team and better meetings to invest your precious energy.

The recovery day

 What to do once all the presents are opened? Should we just move forward with our goals? As I wrote about recovery day after flying long distance. It is important to plan a recovery day after the holidays. This is your guilty free time.

New year preparations

 I stopped preparing for things since August this year. I decided to go with the flow. With no plans for the New Year, today I received an invitation to a party. Seems like not having any plan was the best plan in the end.
