2020 has been a history-making year, no matter what you take away from it.
For me, one of the most meaningful lessons of the past year is learning how to:
- Embrace flexibility and adapt in the face of new, unexpected challenges
- Maintain a sense of calm when things seem especially tumultuous
- Discover and do my part to support the racial social justice movement
- Find ways to help others and create positive change in my community
I’ve also learned how resilient we can all be. We’re stronger for having lived through 2020.
As we reflect on the past year and get more distance from it, we’ll continue to learn from it. We’ll get some perspective and keep growing from the experiences and challenges we had in 2020.
Looking forward to 2021, I’m not going to make any predictions. Most New Year’s predictions are wrong, so I’ll spend my time and energy on something more useful.
Instead, I’m going to make some resolutions.
I resolve to tell the people I love that I love them every day.
I resolve to take science- and evidence-based action.
I resolve to use my voice for positive change.
I resolve to stay flexible in my planning and ideas.
I resolve to express more gratitude.
I resolve to listen more and communicate better.
I resolve to set aside more time to take care of myself so I can be my best self every day.
What resolutions do you have for 2021?
If you haven’t thought about it, it’s not too late.
One of the most important aspects of my role as a fiduciary financial advisor is listening to my clients. I enjoy talking things out and helping my clients find some clarity, especially after recent shakeups.
