The 20 Biggest Lessons 2020 Has Taught Me

Procrastinator to Action Taker ->

Like most people, 2020 has been a tumultuous year for me — both personally and professionally (and, of course, on a worldwide scale) Through all the ups and downs, it's taught me a lot about myself and the world around me. In this solo episode, I share 20 lessons this crazy year has taught me. I hope in sharing these, you'll be able to apply some of them to your own life, too — or even just reflect on the lessons you've learned this year. It's also my last episode for 2020, so thank you for an amazing year and I'll see you in 2021!

Here are the 20 lessons, if you'd like to revisit them:

1. You can't control everything

2. My work doesn't define my worth

3. It's the small moments that make up a big life

4. Reaching your goals won't change who you are as a person

5. The best type of pants are stretchy pants!

6. It's never too late or early to change your path

7. I am not my thoughts

8. You never know who's watching what you're doing - so keep going!

9. It's okay to cry, but it MAY give you a headache

10. Mindset matters in business

11. New Girl is actually a hilarious show

12. Boundaries are a 2-way street

13. We are co-creating every interaction

14. Just like all dogs are cute, all humans are beautiful

15. Everyone's experience of the world is different

16. Saying 'no' makes space for the 'hell yeses'

17. Accountability is everything when it comes to sticking to habits

18. You can't get too attached to the outcome of goals

19. Criticism is a natural part of creating

20. Everyone has to start somewhere
