The period between Christmas and New Year is an odd hinterland of non-doing for me. The celebrations of Christmas pause and wait until the celebrations of New Year begin. That space between one year and the next is when I try and get through tasks that would normally be difficult to do, not because they’re hard, but because they require discipline and time – not something I’m normally abundent in!
Last week I introduced you to the idea of Storming the Castle but I’d be the first to admit not everyone wants to change their own world let alone change THE world and these posts aren’t for those people. Instead they are for that small minority of people who do want to create change, whether it’s in their own life or whether it’s for the benefit of others and incidentally, as you’ll begin to see, those two things are not mutually exclusive.
Have you ever got to a point and thought ‘enough is enough, something has to change’? If you have then you have arrived at the castle gates; what you then need to decide is whether you are going to Storm the Castle, issue the challenge and be the change you want to see, or whether you’re going to pass by, unnoticed in the crowd.
