How happy and significant do you want to be in 2012? How about being an inspiring partner, parent, boss… radiating positive energy to people around you?

Here are 10 easy and ‘natural’ ways to make this happen.

1. Who can ask you (almost) anything… and you will do it for them? Reflect about why…

Isn’t that someone who has consistently and visibly cared about you? Then how about you care visibly (even) more about others? They will care (even) more about you. And if you are a boss, keep in mind what the “20th century management guru” Peter Drucker said: “people don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care”.

2. Who really listens to you? I mean REALLY listens to you! How do they do that? And how do you feel then? May I guess? They (choose to) believe you are an important and interesting person, so they give you their full attention, their time… and silence; they don’t interrupt you; they take time to appreciate and think about what you said before they answer; they ask you to elaborate further… and you feel respected, honored even, and you think at your best, and the conversation energizes you. If that’s right for you, how about you offer (even) more real listening to others?

3. When was the last time you felt completely free to do something you like? How did you feel then? How was that energy in you?

What will happen if you just set yourself free and ‘let go’ more often? Offer others more choices? Empower subordinates in a way they won’t be afraid of failure?

4. What is your dream? What are the dreams of those around you? How about starting to make them happen in 2012?

5. Who was your best boss so far? What was he or she doing to deserve that honor? Possibly some of the above… and isn’t he or she is the one who increased your professional or personal value the most? How about you do just that for yourself and for others in 2012? And regularly check-in with the question “what have I/you learnt this month? How can I/you leverage that learning further?”
