Just days into 2021, it was obvious that this wasn’t going to be the easy year we all wanted. The civil unrest, the economic crisis, the political divisions, and (of course) the pandemic that dominated 2020 all followed us into this year, too. Honestly, we should have expected it.
Growth and change are often chaotic, disruptive processes with no definitive timelines. No matter how much we might prefer things to be otherwise, progress is seldom a linear thing. We move forward a little, step back, revisit things we didn’t fully understand before, learn some more and move on again.
Maybe that’s the key to being our best selves: Once we understand that real growth takes time and can be a little messy, we can more easily embrace the disorder of a changing world and patiently keep working on our goals until everything—at last—clicks into place.
At Rework Work, we believe that the more we learn, the better equipped we are to achieve all our short-term and long-term objectives for the future. We never stop asking, “What’s next?” We’ve collected the best of our efforts from 2021 so we know what we have to improve next year. We’ve also provided a bonus gift from us to you!
