Relax. Unwind. Chill out.
It’s holiday season. And be it relaxing on a beach, having Christmas dinner, end of year work-functions or being reflective on new year’s eve, chances are you’ll be spending some quality time talking with friends & family.
So let’s ensure those conversations are quality.
As the year ends it’s a good time to take stock of yourself. And as the next chapter begins, you can start dreaming anew.
So try kicking these conversation starters around over the break. In the midst of them, you may discover your own answers.

5. What places are on your bucket list to travel to?

8. What will you remember about 2016?
9. What do you want to be different this time next year? How will you make that happen?
