Reinvent the Way You Think About Reinvention
And things just might start to come together.
Did you ever wish you could wake up smack dab in the middle of another life?
(It happens in the movies.)
Maybe you don’t want a whole new life but just want to tweak some areas:
where you live
your golf game (🙋♀️)
Wow, the list could go on and on. As I made this “example” list, I found myself nodding to many of the ideas, with others swirling around in my head.
There are so many areas of our lives we can improve. Right?
But instead of going around saying, “I’m going to tweak my career, my house, my style, and start a morning routine,” it’s often easier to lump it all together and declare, “2024 is the year of reinvention for me.”
Now, reinvention is a lovely concept. I’m in the process of it myself.
But what does reinventing oneself actually mean?
It’s kind of a broad statement, no?
Saying you’re going to reinvent yourself is like saying you’re going to remodel your home completely. Both are totally cool ideas, but unless you start taking specific actions, you kind of half-a** it or just give it up altogether after you don’t see results.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying reinvention is impossible or something we can’t achieve. I’m simply suggesting maybe we can get to our desired goal, one tweak at a time.
For example… if you want an entirely new career, start by researching jobs you find interesting. Look for people on LinkedIn and see what they’re posting about. Then, think about how you could transition to that field.
If you want to eat healthier, maybe a good place to start is ditching the fries and late-night snacking and focusing on adding more veggies to your diet. It doesn’t have to be a big unattainable thing, but rather a series of healthy habits that you slowly incorporate into your daily routine.
So, instead of going hog wild on the reinvention/2024 is the year of you topic, I’m going to offer you podcasts, videos, articles, and other fun facts that can help you improve one tweak at a time.
Consider it a Reinvention Potluck.
