We tend to think of August as the last month of summer. Although the season does not technically end until September 22, teachers and children return to school toward the end of this month, which means most parents who take family vacations will have completed them and start focusing on paying off the relative debt by Labor Day. We have approximately four more weeks to enjoy picnics, beaches, free outdoor concerts, and warm-weather activities. But at the same time, we must prepare for the fast slide into the new year. It seems like the winter holidays always sneak up on us and we’re never fully prepared. This year will be different. Right?
Maybe. Continue following me this month, as I resolve three persistent conflicts by taking Action One from my book, DIY Conflict Resolution: Seven Choices and Five Actions of a Master. I’ll teach you how to succinctly Define the Conflict(s) so it’s easier for you to identify your interests and ideal outcome—which will also help you create an action plan to get the results you want (or something better).
Three Conflicts I Will Resolve This Month Are:
- Conflicts Around Sexism
- Conflicts Around Racism
- Conflicts Around Work
I don’t promise magic solutions to all the world’s problems in these areas, but I’ll show you how to ask some new questions to improve your chances of getting new answers. If you have specific conflicts you would like me to resolve, you can Comment below, but please omit all personally identifiable information. You can use some of the international “John Doe” name types that I use in my book, for example, and use generic names for places (e.g., coffee shop, clothing store, online retailer). If you would like more personalized service, you can also schedule a consultation by calling my office at 212.804.7041.
Let’s make August your best month yet!
