THE YEAR OF HOPE - 2021
“Wishing you all a very happy and prosperous New Year”. – From the entire team at Codleo Consulting.
It’s here, the year of hope and deliverance from this virulent pandemic Covid – 19 in the form of vaccines which have already started being administered to front line workers around the world. India will start the same this month itself. Till then we need to still be on our guard, alert wearing masks, maintaining appropriate physical distancing in all public places as well as staying at home as much as possible.
2021 besides being a year of hope should also be a year of inner transformation for all of us. The anxiety, the stress, the fear all of us have had for our loved ones or ourselves need to give way to calmness and serenity. I know it’s easier said than done but we need to make a beginning. The serenity and calmness we exude has a ripple effect on others around us.
We can all do the following in 2021 on a small level:
Plant 10 saplings and nurture them for a year or so.
Be good with all your colleagues, in-office or working from home
Be good to yourself and be gentle with yourself.
Spread smiles and be kind
Do one good deed a day
Practice yoga, mindfulness, and meditation for the inner transformation
At work whether working from home or in – office, make an effort to be a responsible team member, a supportive mentor, a cooperative employee. Take it upon yourself to be the person you want others to perceive you. Work on yourself. Work on your small flaws and the chinks in your personality’s armour. Accept constructive criticism in the right spirit and work on improving them so that criticism wanes. We have all the power of change within us, let’s activate it.
In the year of hope 2021, support local communities and their business initiatives. Be local, use, and buy local should be the motto for all of us. As the owner or manager or in a leadership position, use local companies as vendors for all your needs. These small businesses took a bad hit in the early part of 2020 thanks to lockdowns and many went asunder. The ones which have survived need to thrive with the support of all businesses. It could be a local tea shop owner, a stationery shop owner, or a hardware repair centre.
In the end, we take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy New Year once again. Let’s all rally together as a community, a nation to herald a new beginning. Codleo is committed to the same and has great plans for 2021. Cheers to all of us!
