As 2023 officially wraps up (yes, I know you might be reading this in 2024, but trust me, the lessons still apply!), I wanted to take a moment to share some of the biggest nuggets of wisdom I gleaned this past year. These aren’t just fluffy “feel good” ideas – these are life-changing lessons that have seriously shifted my perspective.

Lesson 1: Cherish your loved ones (before it’s too late).

This one hit me hard – after losing both my parents within a year, I learned the brutal truth: time is a precious gift, and we can’t wait for some “perfect” moment to share it with the people we love. Make the most of every minute with your family and friends. Don’t put off that phone call, that visit, that hug. You never know how much those little moments might mean.

Lesson 2: Don’t put all your eggs in one basket.

This isn’t just about finances. It’s also about spreading your energy and focus. I made the mistake of relying on one coach for everything I wanted to learn, and ended up feeling overwhelmed and burnt out. So, explore different avenues, learn from different mentors, and keep your mind open to new possibilities.

Lesson 3: Patience is a superpower.

Okay, I’m still working on this one, but let me tell you, it’s a game-changer! When my dad passed away, I wanted to sell his house ASAP and move on. But rushing things only caused stress and frustration. Learning to be patient, especially during tough times, allows you to make better decisions and appreciate the journey, not just the destination.

Lesson 4: Quality over quantity.

Gone are the days of me bragging about reading a ridiculous number of books. Now, I’m all about going deep. Savoring each page, absorbing the lessons, and actually applying what I learn to my life. It’s not about a number on a list, it’s about the transformation within.

Lesson 5: There’s no magic productivity tool.

I’ve chased countless apps, planners, and productivity systems, always thinking the next one would be the answer. But guess what? The perfect tool doesn’t exist. What works for your BFF might leave you feeling lost. Experiment, sure, but remember, the ultimate tool is YOU. Your unique skills, your preferences, your workflow – that’s where the magic happens.

These are just five of the lessons that have reshaped my 2023.
