Taking the time for Mindfulness
With the abundance of uncertainties facing us in present day, it can be challenging to remain focused on one task at a time. Our minds are riddled with thoughts of responsibilities to take care of, meetings to attend, changes and adaptations that need to be made, and the like.

The beginning of a new year is often a time of great organizational ambition and optimism. After months of year-end planning, new strategies and budgets are in place and teams are ready to hit the ground running on a new set of goals and objectives. Despite this optimism, research shows that most of these strategic goals and objectives will never come to fruition. In fact, the statistics range from a dismal 3% to 33% of companies whose executives say they are successful at executing their strategies. With those odds, many wonder if all the planning is worth the effort.
A Time for Reflection
The holidays are the time of year when loved ones gather together to celebrate festivities, give gifts, and create lasting memories. It’s also a great time to reflect on what you’ve accomplished over the year and think about who you want to be in the new year.
