Tap into That “Back to School” Vibe

It’s that time of year when kids head back to school and the weather, hopefully, begins to turn cooler. If you’re like me, you find this shift from vacation mode to a “new year” can be invigorating and empowering.

It’s like signing your name to a fresh notebook where all the pages are blank — waiting for you to set your intentions and develop a plan. 

We are all students in this game called life. So, sharpen your pencils and tap into that high-energy, “back to school” vibe by recommitting to the goals you say are important to you.

Here are three ways to consider for yourself and your team:

  1. Clean out the physical, technical and emotional clutter that gets in the way. Start small, with a desk drawer or unnecessary smart phone apps, and notice how your energy increases.
  2. Create a Vision Board for a clearer picture of where you’re going. Learn Three Reasons Vision Boards Work.
  3. Read an inspiring book or subscribe to a podcast. I’m now reading The Big Leap to learn about how to work in “The Zone of Genius.” I’m also listening and laughing to NPR’s Wait Wait . . . Don’t Tell Me! podcast because it’s one of the most entertaining ways to keep up with the news.

How do you tap into that “back to school” vibe?
