Three things I encourage for a better 2021

Dr. House Strikes again.

Well, we are now in 2021, and frankly, I have all but disappeared from social media. After a few months of trials, tribulations, and what I like to call the “puppet show.” I have seen many people suffer through the last almost year since the pandemic started. The magnifier has been put on all of us because of companies and other factors causing people to feel the immense pressure about what life has brought forth. I am still seeing clients privately and for my day job, and I would like to highlight three things that have helped them and may also help you.

  1. Remove the noise- I am not saying wear earplugs wherever you go, but I say that turning down the external chatter will help you focus on what matters. While I enjoy social media and staying up to date as any other person, I have found that minimizing those external factors helps my headspace more than supporting it. I have gone to a few extremes in my attempts to close the noise gap. It has involved blocking the news in the house, removing social media from my phone almost completely, and engaging in conversations via phone or voice notes in telegram or signal. Now, while everyone will have their opinions about Facebook and Twitter as sources of news and content. My personal opinions of the overlords who run either entity have caused me to distance myself from them and not return. Learning to have boundaries about conversation topics is important. There is nothing worse than trying to have a conversation with a bullhorn singing the same song day in and out. People will understand when you say enough, so don’t be afraid to do so.

I would post or make you an offer to join me on social media or my site, but I don’t want to be typical in that manner, but I encourage you to drop me a note on here or subscribe for more soon. I will do my best to write more over the next few months as I establish a new routine to thrive and support others to do the same.

Wishing you well always,

A man learning everything he can about the human condition so he can help others find their way in their lives.
