As we begin a new year, most of us reflect on what we want to accomplish over the following 12 months. Some of us have resolutions that define the personal and professional goals we want to achieve. From weight loss and drinking more water to being a better parent or spouse or learning a new skill for our careers, we all have areas of our lives that we hope to improve.
One strategy often used to stay motivated as we push ourselves to meet our goals is to select two or three words that inspire us and to post those words in places where we will see them several times a day. Similarly, some people may choose a quote that accomplishes the same thing. For me, after enduring the often difficult and challenging 2020, I’ve decided on a quote that I know will be a source of motivation and also will help me focus on what truly matters in life.
The quote that I’m referring to is by Abraham Joshua Heschel, a Polish-born American Rabbi & Philosopher. He said, “Our goal should be to live life in radical amazement, to get up in the morning and look at the world in a way that takes nothing for granted. Everything is phenomenal, everything is incredible, never treat life casually. To be spiritual is to be amazed.”
If I were to choose just two words from the quote to guide me, then I would select ‘radical amazement.’ Consider those two words. Radical can be defined as far-reaching or thorough; amazement can be a great surprise or wonder.
Over the next 12 months, our team at 3C will embrace the concept of radical amazement and will apply it to our work. We pledge to you that we’ll bring content to you that is far-reaching, thorough, and amazing, and also surprisingly wondrous and innovative. We want to be your partner as we work together to meet your needs for knowledge, skills, and experiences. We hope that you’ll join us on this journey and help us achieve these goals.
Collectively, let’s jettison the hardships of 2020 and simply say:
Welcome to 2021, a year that will be radically amazing!
