Some people might find it tedious to repeat the cliché “new year, new me.” To reflect on what went well and what didn’t, contemplate a reset in key areas of their lives, and choose what they want to focus on improving, leaders and professionals may find the beginning of the year in January to be the best time.

The time after the holidays may be the ideal time to start a new practice, give up a bad habit, take up a fulfilling new hobby, change your daily routine, or make any number of other life-improving changes, whether you feel like you need a complete reset or just want to keep the positive momentum going. Below, Dr. GB offers an excellent piece of advice to set yourself up for success in 2023!

“Happiness sought from outside forces is temporary. Prioritizing our individual selves and practicing mindfulness that places attention internally may allow us to cultivate happiness and tranquility that remain constant. Therefore, no matter what dire circumstances may arise, we are able to return our mind and body to a state of equilibrium and respond to situations calmly and effectively.” – Gamini Hewawasam

From changing markets to unexpected challenges to potential new opportunities, there are many reasons a business owner may consider a pivot. Before making that leap, however, it’s important to ensure the decision is well-planned—and, more importantly, that the plan is well-executed.

Laying the proper foundation is critical if a pivot is to produce the desired results. Dr. GB Hewawasam explains the first measures he would recommend to his clients for navigating a prospective pivot below.

“Most of the time, we are influenced by our emotions, making it difficult for us to find the right kind of reasoning without first calming down our emotions. Hence, it is very important to stay calm. Use reason to discover the right sort of thinking. This is the primary approach when attempting to pivot a business.”- Gamini Hewawasam

We are presented with difficulties, difficult choices, and countless daily duties that demand our time and energy every day.

Here is a real-life example of advice provided to a client by Dr. GB Hewawasam to help the client recover from a difficult situation and carry that strength and momentum forward.

Running your own company might seem like a 24/7 job that demands all of your focus as an owner, especially if you’re juggling several operational “hats.” When you are often interrupted, it can be difficult to find and keep the focus you need to achieve your goals.

Here is a tip from Dr. GB Hewawasam for staying focused on the bigger picture and your primary business objectives;

Business owners should understand the difference between attention and awareness. Attention is focusing on what is inside or looking within. Awareness follows from the focusing of that attention. Looking and seeing are two different things. You may look but not see. Cultivating this awareness through deep internal attention can allow business leaders to remain mindful.”- Dr.Gamini Hewawasam

Dr. GB Hewawasam emphasizes the significance of business leaders understanding the distinction between attention and awareness and how cultivating awareness via deep internal attention may assist business leaders to remain mindful.
