At the time of recording this episode, it’s the end of the summer in the Northern Hemisphere and I’m feeling the urge to take stock of the last few months and review the progress I’ve made and basically prepare myself for moving forward into my second favourite season of the year, Autumn (or Fall, if you’re that way inclined.)
For the record: my favourite season is Spring.
OK so it’s kind of like there are harvest vibes in the air. And I really like the idea of aligning how I approach my business and creative pursuits and life in general with a seasonal approach. Energetically, it just makes sense. And even from a practical perspective it could make sense to have this seasonal approach: I’m not a mum but I know that a lot of kids go back to school in September, starting a new year. I think part of me still gets the shits every September with that anxiety that comes with starting a new year at school, even though it’s been a decade since I’ve been in formal education.
So rather than trying to ignore whatever anxiety or anticipation we might feel at this time of year, why not work with it? Turn that nervous energy into something we can productively use in our creative businesses?
This brings me to what my recommendation is on todays podcast: reviewing your progress.
