When the year comes to an end, I always like to spend some time contemplating what the year has brought and how I have navigated through it.

2021 has seen some interesting changes, and at a personal level I made a conscious decision to spend more time on some areas of passion and growth. In setting that intention, I created space and increased my time to do more pro-bono work in areas that I am interested in.

Some areas of focus include conscious ageing and elderhood. I have learnt much and also been able to contribute to these topics. An unexpected outcome of this has been that as I have increased doing more pro-bono work, the commercial side of my consulting business has also increased. Perhaps, it’s the Law of Reciprocity at work?

What were the highlights of 2021 for you?
