This month I am making small, medium and big shifts.
Shifting my tone of voice.
Speaking softly even when I’m about to lose it.
Shifting how I speak.
Slowing down my speech so that it fills me with deep breaths and not angry talk.
Shifting from assuming to listening.
Ask ingquestions instead of making statements, which may or may not be true.
Shifting my attitude.
Assuming good intent even though it my not seem that way. And, when it turns out it doesn’t, then it will be time to move on.
Shifting my focus.
Spending just the right amount of time on work, but leaving what didn’t get done for later; later will come soon enough.
Shift is my January word.
Evolve is my #OLW for 2021.
So many ways to shift in order to evolve.
