As we say Goodbye to 2012, it is time to do Simhavalokan.
As the lion walks some distance in the jungle, it looks back to examine the path it chose and how it covered that distance. This retrospective glance of the lion is known as Simhavalokana in Sanskrit.
We look back, not to get stuck in the past, but to learn from it. How has the year been for us as Individuals and as a team? What mistakes we made that we can correct? What were our EXTRAORDINARY achievements? What can we learn from them? If we do not take the time to retrospect, we will be stuck in what we are, and our growth will be by accident rather than by design.
Today, before we usher in 2013, take a moment to pause and retrospect. Decide on the changes we want to make that will help us EXCEED. And resolve to make those changes.
And then, welcome 2013. Welcome the future. After all Charles Kettering once said, “My interest lies in the future, because I am going to spend the rest of my life there” 🙂
Happy New year.
