Dear <<First Name>>,

Ninth grade English class is forever remembered for everybody's favorite page turner, Tale of Two Cities. Mrs. Perone led us through the Dickens' novel, literally, one page at a time over a semester.

I looked forward to her class because she brought us along the journey at a manageable pace that allowed for contemplation and discussion. It was a book I would never have picked up on my own (I mean people die brutally and it's long). To this day, though, I appreciate Mrs. Perone's approach to creating the space (time and energy) required to foster intrigue and keep the attention of a bunch of adolescents.

Although ninth grade is a few moons ago, the experience seems a fitting backdrop to envisioning the year ahead.

As I considered all that I want to accomplish this year, I couldn't help but notice that the list includes items I didn't complete last year. There are a couple reasons for the spillover, the first is that my list is ridiculously long and ambitious. My illusion of grandeur is impressive really. Secondly, while spinning multiple plates simultaneously is a strength, doing so distracted me from the focused time needed to complete some of the most meaningful goals I set out for myself.

Tearing through the "to do" list is adrenaline producing, and who doesn't love that feeling? It's important, however, to step back now and again to ensure the boxes we're checking move the needle on our "make a difference" goals, too.

Driving significant change for ourselves, our teams and organizations requires space to think and less friction on our Mrs. Perone's English class.

May the following steps help you create the space you need to lead the changes you envision this year and beyond.

Clearing Space to Focus on What Matters Most

The end of one year and the beginning of the next gives most of us cause for pause. “Out with the old, in with the new!” sounds so festive when the bells are chiming at midnight. Yet, it’s difficult to embrace new habits and approaches when the old ones have served us reasonably well. That is, until they don’t.

If, for instance, you find that driving meaningful change for yourself, your teams or organization has remained elusive, it’s likely an opportunity to experiment with ways to carve out space (time & energy) for all that goes into delivering high value outcomes.
