5 Things to Leave Behind as You Step Into 2024

Updated: Jan 3



The holidays and the turn of the new year bring a sense of nostalgia, gratitude, and opportunity. As we welcome 2024, I hope you had an opportunity to rest and rejuvenate before leaping into another year. Even a single free afternoon can reboot our minds and bodies when the daily grind threatens to overwhelm us.


In the soil of the quick fix is the seed of a new problem." - Wayne Muller

And now, a bright new year stretches out before us, full of potential! What goals will you complete in the coming months? What new endeavors will you fearlessly embark upon? 2024 stands ready for us to make it truly incredible – personally and professionally.


However, to fully step into the promise of the future, it helps to take an honest look at what needs to be left behind, primarily when it does not serve you. We constantly evolve as humans through our lived experiences, conversations, and more. We shed old ways of thinking and behaviors to emerge renewed, like a butterfly leaving behind the confines of its cocoon. What better time to intentionally consider your evolution than the New Year? 


Whether an intrapreneur or entrepreneur, what perspectives or practices are you ready to release?


Less Of This

Below are five things in particular that may hold you and your organization back from reaching new heights in 2024:



Burnout from Handling HR Solo

Let go of the additional action item of overseeing, facilitating, or executing human resources tasks alone. Expand your time to focus on steering your business toward success with a who, not how, approach incorporating AllProfit HR as a strategic business partner or coach.

Quick Fixes that Temporarily “Bandage” Issues

Inequity and Confusing Policies

One Size Fits All Development Programs

Legal Concerns from Uninformed Practices

BONUS: Leaving Behind Status Quo Thinking



We all occasionally fall into habitual routines and constrained thinking without noticing it happening. The symbolic metamorphosis of the butterfly is a reminder that MORE can come from LESS – by releasing assumptions and former limitations, our organizations can transform into something even more beautiful and impactful.


Just as a butterfly emerges with a broader perspective, let the fresh clarity and inspiration of a new year reshape your business into its highest and truest form. I invite you to courageously examine what is holding you back, shed those constraints, and step into the unknown but promising brighter days ahead!
