Tonight’s the night when many people think of, and maybe even make, resolutions.
About what they will do in the year ahead. Or maybe stop doing.
And there are plenty of people giving advice to follow. Things to do that will make your business stronger, better, fitter. And you a richer, better, wiser person.
But I want to make it clear that, for me, conscious business is not about doing anything. Or giving anything up. (Except maybe doing stuff).
The best known form of the Serenity Prayer is probably:
God, grant me the serenity
To accept the things I cannot change;
The courage to change the things that I can;
And the wisdom to know the difference.
I read this to mean that, rather than doing stuff, we can simply accept what is.
And, the joke is, we can even accept that, as humans, in a living world, we and everything around us changes all the time. Anyway. Without our puny efforts.
So why stress ourselves doing stuff? Why strive to change and improve things?
So (and here comes the advice) don’t fix or change your business. Simply accept it. Let it change and grow.
Simply become conscious of what it is. Reflect on it. Let it be.
Happy New Year.
