Yesterday I wrote on LinkedIn about how I used to treat January 1st as a day to wipe the slate clean and start over.
January 1st used to be the equivalent of dumping out all of my year's schoolwork into the trash or cleaning out my locker at the end of a year.
A sign of freedom, new beginnings, and a new start.
But this year felt and feels different.
2020 was not kind to me in any sense of the word. I lost a job, lost myself for over half of it, lost a family member, and lost what I thought this year would be.
But looking back yesterday, I realized everything that 2020 had taught me. It truly became my greatest teacher.
Through the chaos, tides of change, and waves of uncertainty, 2020 became my greatest teacher.
2020 was too important to wipe or throw away.
Instead, I am using 2020 as a foundation to build upon for a better life, future, and HR.
We still have work to do, and it is only beginning!
