The year is drawing to a close. It is a good time to find some quiet time and reflect on the past year and look forward to the new year. I challenge you to try this exercise.
List at least 3 experiences or events that were wonderful this past year. What insights did you receive from these delightful experiences?
Think of a couple of things that did not go quite the way you wanted. What did you learn about yourself from this?
What is your vision for the upcoming year?
Brainstorm a list of what you have to do to make this vision come true?
What stumbling blocks might impede you and how will you deal with them?
From your brainstorm list, pick one small thing and schedule time to work on it.
In going through this exercise myself, I have found it helpful to also work on a vision board. I also find that sharing my thoughts with others helps me gain clarity. I focus on only those thoughts and actions that come from me and that I can control. Let this time moving forward be our best personal year yet.
