As the year ends, it can be a great time for reflection with an eye to setting ourselves up for success in the year ahead. That said, today's #sundaystories is dedicated to fueling ourselves - and not running out of fuel!

Did you run out of fuel this year? I did. Are you feeling any degree of depletion? I do.

So, what's a depleted executive to do?

๐Ÿ‘‰ Rest, refuel set the stage for success in the year ahead.

In endurance riding this "running out of fuel" (or not ingesting enough fuel) is called "bonking". ๐Ÿ˜ซ It's awful. If you've done it any number of times - you know you want to avoid it at all costs. It hurts the mind and body, and it makes recovery so much harder. It happens when you don't fuel enough // ingest enough calories // take good enough care of yourself while you are riding. I bonked on a ride a couple weeks ago and it was awful. Lesson learned (again)!

Careers can often be similar to endurance sports. Fueling ourselves along the ride//journey is super important - it's a daily practice - and there are tons of lessons we learn along the way. Keep in mind this "fueling" can be a wide range of things from actual calories to the people in our circles, to what we read/listen to/watch, to what we say to ourselves and more.

If you - like me - feel any sense of depletion/a bonk in your work life, you might want to consider refueling your mind/body/soul before the new year begins - and asking yourself what you can do (or not do!) in the year ahead to stay fueled along the work journey.

I'm on day 3 of my refueling mission and today I added to my 2022 fuel list some positive self-talk: "I AM WORTHY"

What fuel is on your list?!
