Yom Kippur: A Day of Atonement

Yesterday was Yom Kippur, one of the High Holy Days for Jews, otherwise known as the Day of Atonement.

As part of the holiday, we read down a list of sins (text available here), apologizing for the ones that we committed, and asking forgiveness.  In addition, we promise to do better next year.  

It's really interesting how little human nature has changed in the past several thousand years. The list of sins is just as relevant today as I imagine it was back then.

Equally important to recognizing and repenting for your sins, is what comes after.

Remembering all the good you did as well … for yourself, your friends and family, or your community. 

It's an important framework that highlights how you have grown; and, it also shows where you have room to grow. 

Hoping you all experience growth in your mental states, your relationships, and in your businesses.
