Lee’s 30-Day Unfinished Business Challenge
As I take to the road on the next leg of my UNFINISHED BUSINESS book tour, I feel more committed than ever to helping other people tie up their emotional and spiritual loose ends. In my extraordinary year of trying to do the right things, I learned that tending to your unfinished business can help make you a kinder, more compassionate person. It can help you lighten your load and focus your energy on what's truly important: your family and friends and living according to your deepest values.
In this season of gratitude and new beginnings, I am pleased to announce the first ever 30-Day Unfinished Business Challenge. Commit to taking care of one item on your list of unfinished business -- and I will give you the tools and support you need to succeed.
Need Help Getting Started?
Addressing your unfinished business is a five-step process. It involves:
* Identifying your unfinished business
* Confronting the fears at its root
* Reaching out to the person(s) you wronged
* Making amends
* Reflecting on the experience
Each of these five steps is important to the process. Unless you face your fears, it will be difficult for you to reach out to the people you’ve wronged. Unless you reach out to those you've wronged, you can't make amends.
It is through reflection that you learn the lessons that will help you refine your conscience and make a heart-felt commitment to act in accordance with your ideals.
The Unfinished Business Toolkit is designed to help you address your unfinished business one step at a time. Click here and you will find tips for taking stock, facing your fears, reaching out to others and making amends. The Unfinished Business Worksheet is designed to help you organize and reflect on your experience and to share what you learn with others.
At the end of 30 days -- or even earlier if you've completed your item -- I'd appreciate your taking the time to share the story of your experience with me, so that (with your permission, of course) I can share it with others.
As I wrote in my book:
"All of us have unfinished business. It can be a friend we lost touch with or a mentor we never thanked; it can be a call we meant to make or a pledge we put on hold. Too often, life takes over and pushes the experiences that might enrich, enlarge or even complete us to the bottom of our to-do list."
The hurdles we face in tackling our unfinished business can seem impossibly high, but the first step in clearing them is usually quite simple: Write an email, or make a phone call. I'm here to help -- and to cheer you on.
