“Life begins when we begin, and each day we ought to be born again.”
– Sterling W. Sill
the idea of “The Great Resignation” — as this unique period of working life has been deemed — this next month and standard New Years rituals (personal reflections, resolutions, intention-setting, etc.) should be anything but standard. There’s nothing holy about resignation. Let’s desecrate it!
If ever there was a time for deeper awareness of one’s career and life-purpose juices being squeezed out and imbibed with abandon, this is that time.
Sure, there’s a lot of hooplah to come around the festivities of the season. Yet, there’s no reason to wait to get a leg up on one’s repurposing toward a bigger, bolder and better new year until one is in recovery mode from holiday partying. Start that sober repurposing plan now!
Getting ahead of the game by getting your introspective evaluation and consciously constructed game plan in place before the parties can leave you enjoying the holidays even more because you already know what’s coming next: you’re boots are ready to hit the ground on Jan 1.
To support that proactive and even pre-emptive retailiatory strike on any foggy start to your upcoming New Year, enjoy a holiday discount on a few of my most popular career and life-purpose juicing sessions for the next 3 weeks:

“We must find time to stop and thank the people who make a difference in our lives.”
– John F. Kennedy
as being about turkey or even family. Rather, it was a big “THANK YOU” to the Native American Wampanoag tribe and their chief, Massasoit, for saving the hides of the first settlers.
After half of the Mayflower’s original colonists died during their first harsh winter, the tribe taught the survivors how to grow corn, to fish, to pull maple syrup from trees and how to avoid poisonous plants.
So, they celebrated after their first successful harvest and joined together with their helpers to express gratitude and rejoice in the blessing of life itself.
In that vein, I offer you a simple challenge for this holiday:
Who saved your hide this past year? Will you reach out and thank them? By when?
On my end, I want to thank you, as a subscriber to my (sorta) weekly JOLT Note. There’s been LOTS of changes going on here in my world, with a new book coming out in next year (after 19 years in development) and some related shifting of plans.
I appreciate your giving me a (sorta) weekly opportunity to attempt to creatively inspire, and ALWAYS appreciate your replies of what most makes a difference and helps you.
Now go thank those who’ve helped you!
Think differently, play better.
Got Thanksgiving for your hide?

being a whole other person in 8 days than you would have otherwise.
You’ve heard of The 12 Days of Christmas? Welcome to The 8 Days of Thanksgiving.
Simple challenge, yet will amp up your energy as well as contribute to the upliftment of others.
Between NOW and next Thursday — Thanksgiving here in the US (but play wherever you are) — take time each day to distinguish at least one blessing in your life, and post on some social media venue at least one thing you’re thankful for! Invite others to join in with you if you like, but post anyway, regardless of likes, loves, cares or comments! (Use hashtag #8daysofthanksgiving)
We’ll be playing this in our Back Forty Freedom Fliers Group (see above), and you’re more than invited to join us.
Yet please don’t take this simple game for granted. You’ll be amazed at not only what you’ll discover in and for yourself but the tide of good energy that will happen because of you. Use your blessings to incite others to count theirs. . .and let’s create a frikkin movement!
The 8 Days of Thanksgiving are upon you. Make a grateful noise!
Think differently, play better. (And, again, if you want to play with US, join us here.)

“Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving.”
