It is a fact of nature that we often spend many hours of each day focused on someone else. We focus on our boss, our job, our family, our projects — but one person is usually left out of this focus — you! We can easily lose ourselves in the clamor for our attention. This year, though, I call for “A Year of Self Preservation”. A year of returning the focus to ourselves and our own lives, so that we can continue to help others.

It is my firm belief that we can only, truly, help others when we ourselves are in a good position. If we try to do too much, without the support of friends, family or a stable income, we risk placing our own life, work and income in jeopardy. This isn’t selfishness. Self preservation is about establishing a firm foundation where you can stand so you can offer a helping hand to others.

The tenets of A Year of Self Preservation are:

  • A rested parent/worker/caregiver is a good parent/worker/caregiver
  • Taking care of yourself first — not last
  • Knowing when and how to ask for help
  • Learning when and how to say — No
  • Distancing yourself from negativity and avoiding the downward cycle

Join Douglas at Tuesdays with Transitioners and see how you can make 2013 the best year possible.
