It’s been a while as I like to step back and observe during major life transitions.
What’s the big change?
Well, I managed to land a new role in higher education! Working with the College of Communication and Information to help serve our graduate student community. A dream opportunity, I am thrilled, excited, and pumped to embrace the new waves of change.

Yet, at the same time, being an INTP (and a Taurus) I find sudden instances of change to take a lot of energy from my spirit. As an act of self-care, I go into Reflection & Rest mode.
I find ways to delegate projects, streamline tasks, and lighten up on meetings and events. I use the time to connect fully with family and take in the situations as they come.
Before this Rest & Relax phase, I do one critical task:
Set a deadline for when your “rest” phase ends. Eventually, you should get back up to your full speed.
Rest is a beautiful gift, but it is best balanced with the energy of creation. Creating your future, your business, your brand or whatever drives you forward towards your goals.
So…here we are…
Building back up to full speed for me means taking the time to build on my mission to draw out your authentic success. To remind you of the hunger your ambitions ignite and give you the tools that satisfy your desires.
So I share one more move that gets you a step closer to where you want to be.
So my one more move is a review of how to reset after an extended period of rest. Disclaimer: This is the method I’ve observed over time and I fully encourage your customize a process that works for you. With that here are some actions to take.
How to Reset
Set aside 5-10 minutes to free write or map all of the things important to you and what you want to achieve.
Organize and Prioritize
Group what you wrote in the first part into major domains and then order the importance of what you should achieve first.
Review Your Vision
Does your latest brain dump align with your ten-year vision? Use your long-term look to further refine your current priorities or re-strategize the long-term goals as needed.
Get to it.
Things won’t get done unless you do them. If after the first three steps, you’re still frozen in the act, let’s chat about it.
