Recreate Your Job, Your Life or Yourself

November 8, 2021
Executive Coaching

I was listening to Elin Hilderbrand talk about her latest novel. The interviewer spent some time talking about the career of a writer and what that was like to consistently come up with new ideas for the books that she’s written.


Her response was very interesting. She said:

“I do the same things every year completely different.”


I wasn’t expecting the last two words on that sentence, but I think it is a great challenge for everyone, not matter what their walk in life.


How exciting is a life where we may be in the same career or the same job for a length of time, yet we always approach the new year by doing things differently.


Imagine how knowledgeable we would be and the happiness we would feel by not having a pent-in feeling when we challenge ourselves to do things differently, it keeps us very sharp.




I’ve listed five numbers below. Each one represents a year. Start with next year and work your way back.


List one big thing you did differently each year and see if you are changing things up. I had you put in next year by #5 so that you can be thinking ahead to what you want to change up for next year.
