We attach significance to the turning of the calendar, and when the calendar turns to a new year, it means more than learning to change a digit when we write a check. We’ve started a new chapter!
It is beneficial for us to think about how we can get the most from the end of chapter 2020 and be ready for 2021. We invite you to think about being prepared and secure for the unexpected in life by way of reviewing your life, home and auto insurance. We make the process as simple as a phone appointment to review your coverages and needs to make sure you are properly covered and saving as much money as possible. Call us for a Farmers Friendly Review®, 913-871-4040. Once you have peace of mind on those important issues, you can focus on enjoying life and making memories with family and friends! Here are ten feel good recommendations for you:
Reconnect with an old friend or colleague. You know who I mean. The person who came to your mind as you read that sentence. Make the effort to call or contact them. Do more than just say hello. If they live close, get together for a meal or an evening. If they live further away, schedule time for a long, relaxed phone call. Regardless of how you connect, make sure that you spend time on more than just the good old days and the old stories. Learn about what this person is doing, their goals and dreams. See what you can do to help them achieve those things.
Spend one day in service to others. Volunteer your day to a service organization. Go to a nursing home. Rake the neighbors leaves. Use your professional skills in a pro bono way. It does not matter what you do, just do it with a giving heart.
Read one book you have wanted to read. If you are a big reader, you already have a stack to read. Pick one and commit to getting it read. If you don’t have a book in mind, then talk to someone you trust and admire, and ask them for a suggestion. It doesn’t matter what the book is. Just pick it and read it.
Give someone a book that you have found personally valuable. Maybe it is the book you are now going to read. Maybe it is something you read in January, or maybe it is your favorite children’s book. Again, what the book is, it does not matter. The joy comes in identifying a person who will enjoy it and benefit from it the way that you did. When you give them the book, make sure you share with them why you are sharing it with them it will mean so much to them.
Make a list of the things you have learned this year. Hopefully, it is a long list! Do not try to do this all at one time. Give yourself a place to write and a couple of days to allow your mind to find these nuggets.
Identify the top five. Review the list you made and pull out the five that are most important to you. Write them down and think about why they are so valuable to you and how you can benefit from them today and in the future.
Make a list of the most fun things you have done this year. You will have fun making this list and yes, I do mean make a list!
Identify why they were the most fun so you can do more of it next year. This only makes sense. Once you have thought about your most fun, figure out how to get more of it into your life whether it is an experience, time with specific people or whatever.
Commit to having another experience before December 31st that you could add to your most fun list. Too often, fun gets sidelined, especially near the busy end of the year. Do not let that happen. Make sure that you have some BIG fun before the end of the year.
Make a list of things you want to learn next year. Some things in life we learn serendipitously, and those are precious indeed. But we can also determine what we want to learn and why. Make some of those determinations now before you turn your calendar to the New Year.
Some of these are forward-looking tasks, some retrospective. That is intentional. It is important for us to regularly reflect. When we look to the future, we will see where we are going and correct our course to get where we want to go. These actions will be like magic in your life. Your life will be richer and more satisfying. You will be moving in the direction of your potential when you take time to do these things.
You should consider reviewing your insurance coverage at least annually. I can provide a Farmers Friendly Review® so customers can go over their coverages and make sure they have the coverages they want and still find them to be a good fit.
Get the right coverage for you. Ask if you qualify for the most discounts in insurance! Feel free to email us or give us a call for more information!
