Choose Joy, having considered all the facts…

I heard this from Nancy at a recent TTT Collegiate here in London.  You won’t be surprised to hear that she always brings something fresh and often remarkable to this growing group of Time to Think practitioners.  Some of you are currently on your own path to qualification, others already attend – and others might like to think about taking that step in 2018: http://bit.ly/12miZpu  I look forward (with joy!) to seeing you at the UK Collegiate in 2018: dates will be Jan 18/ April 18/ July 12/ October 11 in central London.  I’m also looking forward to Collegiate dates in Ireland next year – a very welcome first! – and maybe meetings elsewhere in Europe too.

Choosing joy is a practical way of appreciating what’s good and possible, whether past, present or future – I wonder what has been joyful for you during 2017?  We know that focusing on the real often small positives in our daily lives is a recognised way to develop resilience, to lift our capacity to think well, and is at the core of Appreciation as a key principle of the Thinking Environment way of being.  Mike Robbins offers some thoughts on this here: http://bit.ly/2zQTrq7and I hope you will enjoy your personal experiences of Appreciation over Christmas, and during 2018.
