“Okay Tyrone. This must be a mistake. You couldn’t seriously have just started a new year and all you could think about is yourself.” As Caribbean disk jockeys would say: “Wheel and come again, Tyrone!”
No guys. I’m doing fine. This phrase “All About ME” is only an abbreviation. Here’s what the “ME” means…(drumroll please). It stands for Minimalistic Essentialism. Yes, what a mouthful!
Let me break it down for you. I decided that in 2020 I needed to really focus on the few things, or even better, on the ONE THING that really matter(s). That’s the Essentialism part. I also committed to simplifying my life and reducing the number of possessions I owned so that I can focus with greater clarity. Too much “stuff” gets very distracting. That’s the Minimalism part. So this year I am focusing on ONE THING-becoming a Minimalistic Essentialist.
For me, this translates into a simple motto for the year: Value what God values. This may mean more community service, more benevolence, more teaching, broader leadership, or maybe it’s growing in my spiritual disciplines. In other words, I want to make God’s priority my priority, wherever that leads in my personal and professional life.
I hope you’ve made some great decisions and set some inspiring goals for 2020. Let us journey together for a year of impact.
P.S. Next week’s blog will have a new look! I hope you’ll like it.
