Happy New Year! Less Ordinary Living in 2010

Reading time: Under 2 minutes

2010 is here, the first year of a new decade.  This decade is so new that it doesn’t even have a nickname yet.  For me, this symbolic change brings with it a combination of emotions – excitement at the possibilities ahead, trepidation at some of the complex challenges out there, but most of all hope for the amazing possibilities in the future.

At Less Ordinary Living, the vision is to help you live your life to the full.  I believe that everyone has vast potential to make a difference.  This year my goal is to be a catalyst to help you make the most of your potential and fulfil your ambitions.  With dedication and support, everything is possible and it would be an honour to be part of your support system this year.

The plan this year is to cover key topics to help you grow and develop each month.  The theme for January is Finding Focus in 2010.  Our worlds are becoming so complex and full of distraction that it can be a real challenge simply to stay focused on what is really important.  Over the next month, I’ll cover some key techniques and ideas for developing an inner sense of calm, taking control of your time and increasing your personal effectiveness.

If you think that this would be helpful for you, please do subscribe by clicking here to make sure you don’t miss any of the series.

Beyond January, we’d like your help to shape the future direction of Less Ordinary Living.  Please leave a comment or email me at phil@lessordinaryliving.com to share:

What are your goals and plans for this year?

What are the biggest challenges you face?

What are you excited about?

What are you afraid of?

How can we best support you in fulfilling your potential in 2010?

I look forward to hearing from you and sincerely wish you a very Happy New Year.

    I’m excited about exploring my potential this year – finding out what makes me tick. I’m hoping to build a network of others fascinated by what brings true happiness and fulfillment in life. I’m also excited and a little fearful about running the London Marathon in April for charity.

    Hi Phil,

    I’m going to move into bigger essay markets, finish a card deck, visit Bhutan and give more talks about taking back one’s power!

    Three of my goals are to obtain employment in my “vocation”, study/learn about perfumes-fragrances and read three autobiograhy books.

    “Yes I can, in 2010″!

    Teress – I love that you are pursuing your vocation. It is wonderful to find a calling in life and to go after that. Don’t let anything stand in your way – remember that everything is possible if we get our approach right.

    Thanks for the comment,
