10 New Year Wellbeing Tips

I am always bombarded with an array of workshop, webinar, teleseminar and conference offers at the beginning of the year. Most of them are about learning the business secrets to increasing cash flow, improving marketing, setting up a to die for business plan, getting your head around how to use social media for your business etc etc.... the list is actually endless.  And yep, each new year, I get caught up in the "I really should attend / participate..." mentality and then when I don't make the effort feel pretty lousy!

Speak Up - Having Tough Conversations

Tough conversations like succession planning, which house to live in on farm when married, changes to crop rotations and sheep versus cropping etc are a necessary part of life.  And especially so in many farming businesses where everyone works and lives together. Yet it is common for us to not have these tough conversations, in fact many of us will go out of our way to avoid them.  Having the conversation is uncomfortable, risky and unpredictable.  In the short term it is easy to turn  blind eye and do nothing.  But, in the long run, short term pain is worth the long term gain.  It is important to speak up and speak your truth!

Create a Vision Board for Business

For almost a year now, I have been involved in a monthly business peer mentoring mastermind program.  It's only 2 hours a month but it has really rocked the 'soul of my business' and led me to question its why and how!  You see, there are times (perhaps even many) when I can find myself and my business lacking in focus, feeling overwhelmed and not sure of direction. This year I am keen to establish a vision framework for my business RuralScope, a process that I can follow to achieve a vision that is clear, ALIVE and compelling!

Our Top Quotes on Leadership

We are passionate about leadership across rural Australia.  Each year we are lucky to work with inspiring, emerging and established leaders.  Through this work we see and feel how important leadership is to them and to others. And we see leadership campaigns in action. I am lucky to have had and have some amazing role models, mentors, colleagues, trainers, researchers, key figures and some challengers in my life.  Each of them has taught or continues to teach me about the importance of leadership in my personal, family and professional and public lives.  I am extremely grateful for this.  Without these people, I wouldn't have the self belief to achieve.  Each year we find quotes that resonate and stick them up in our office and use them as motivators here and also across our leadership programs, materials and resources.  Each one of them has something important to say.    

Here are our current top leadership quotes.....

New Year Tips for Rural Australia

When is your "New Year"? 
You need to work out when your "New Year" is.  If you listen / read all the hype around January each year it's definitely January! However, our recent Twitter discussion highlighted, it is not January for all.  It can be seasonal.  In fact you may have a few "New Years" in one calendar year. The best thing is to find your "New Year".  I reckon this might be a pretty challenging concept to fully sink in, but from what our Twitter followers tell us it makes perfect sense for rural Australia and I'm not going to argue with them. 
Key tips for your "New Year".
And the result of our Twitter discussion is a whole list of real life / real time tips from real people!  The beauty here is that these tips work for a new year, a new season, a project, a goal or a change that you want to make.  It's all about consciously setting your plan/s in place.  Hoping these tips might help. And a special thanks for all who shared them, you will see who they are in the article. Lets find out what they are....
