As fall turns to winter (yes even here in Florida) I’ve been thinking a lot about limiting and endings. As a dreamer, I often find it hard to give up hope. As a person who is persistent, letting go has always been a challenge for me.
But as I deepen in myself, and work with more businesses as they grow, I’ve begun to see the normal cycles of life and death that naturally occur in business and life.
Which is why I’ve been reading an excellent book called Necessary Endings by Henry Cloud. In his book, he talks about our resistance to ending things and how important it is to keep asking what we want to prune and what we want to keep.
And I wanted to share 3 questions from the book I found esp. helpful.
If you’d like to send me your answers I’d love to hear them and if not I hope they serve you well.
- What are you spending time on that is good and helpful but not the best use of your time?
- What do you do that is sick and not getting well?
- What is dead and just taking up space?
PS Winter is coming 😉
