Sharpen the Saw

Balance stones at sunset with the sea in the background.

Hi everyone

Happy New Year! May 2020 be the year of being and doing for you. I hope all your goals and aspirations become a reality.

For me, 2020 is the year of balance. Heck, it’s a difficult thing to get right isn’t it but so important to mental, emotional and physical health.

Last year was very productive, businesswise, but I pushed it a tad. Got very tired towards the end like many of us. Still working to get that balance right……

Reflecting on 2019, I was reminded of the quote by Stephen Covey:

“We must never become too busy sawing to take time to sharpen the saw.”

One of the groovy things about Audible is that it has allowed me to listen to personal development books that I read many moons ago. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Covey is one of those books.

It was one of the first self-help books I read in my twenties and it still feels relevant today. The 7th habit is, “Sharpen the Saw”. This habit focuses on seeking continuous improvement and renewal professionally and personally in order to keep yourself sharp and effective in life.

What are you doing to sharpen the saw in 2020?

Take care and be kind to each other
