In this episode of The Podcast Reporter, we we reflect on a post from Todd Henry in his email-delivery podcast called The Daily Creative, in which he asks us to celebrate a clear mindset while seeing what type of plan for the year we can initiate. And it just does NOT have to be at year-end or at the New Year’s celebration. In fact, it can be at any time during the first half of the year (whichever would be in your good time-line for planning and reflection).
This theme has to deal with the fact that we can CELEBRATE all that the past year had delivered our way in the form of positive events, situations and thoughts for ourselves, our businesses and our podcasts, posts and dialog amidst the negativity and fear-mongering brought about to us by the lame-stream media.
And Todd gives us not only the ideas to deal with so that we can have a grateful manner of moving forward — either at the beginning of the new year, or during the 1st quarter of the year, or even in the first half of the new year. And we do have the ability and the ammunition with which to CELEBRATE for ourselves with some real significance:
In his final words of this email post from Todd,
“You should celebrate. Marking moments is an important aspect of mental health. We need to mark the passage of time, to celebrate wins, and to look back at the mountain we’ve just climbed.
What in your life needs to be celebrated today?
What good things in your life are you grateful for?
What adversity did you overcome this year?
How have you proven to yourself that you are able to persist?
What risk did you take that you look back on with deep satisfaction?
In what ways did you grow this year, whether in perception, skill, or emotion?
What new relationships have entered your life that you should celebrate?
What old relationships remain that should be marked?
What have you moved on from this year that you need to celebrate and leave behind?
Take some time today to end the year well by marking the moment, celebrating your wins, remembering why you’re grateful, marking the moment, and preparing to move ahead.
Good endings lead to good beginnings.”
So, thus, being grateful for what we have experienced and being reflective of what we had accomplished or planned — and what could have resulted as BENEFIT for ourselves (either financially or mentally or in momentum, etc. — Todd gives us a framework for us to reflect on a positive note the past, so that the future can also help us to “move the momentum-indicator” to the side that can best be helpful to us personally, as well as for our business, and especially for our participation in the New Media and podosphere.
So, we would like to thank Todd Henry for his reminder to us that all good things can be used to benefit our mental attitude and give us the energy, momentum and euphoric feeling to move forward in the following year.
Thank you for your attention.
