Most people start making their resolutions in January, but there’s still most of December left—so getting started now on thinking about how I want the next year to go and what changes I want to make in my life in general, can be started right now. I’ve been working towards daily habits of these 3 things: a before-bed gratitude list, a quick check-in list I like to call “I did good today” with all the things I accomplished (big or small), and a be/do/have list. Okay, I guess it’s obvious that I’m a list-junkie. I’m also a journaling/reflecting junkie, which is why I’m sharing the 3 things I’m doing to plan for a successful 2015:
1. What are you devoted to creating… in the new year? [a worksheet to help you focus & find the right words]
This 2-ish page printable will help you lay out your top 3 priority projects for 2015. One of my favourite wordsmiths, Alexandra Franzen, wants to get you focused on moving towards your goals. She’s working with the idea that this will be done by writing out your intentions and declaring your commitments. I love that there is a place to date and sign the agreement, at the end. Because this is such a quick worksheet to fill in, click the link above and get started right now. You don’t need to sit in your favourite chair with a cup of tea and a candle burning next to you. Do this one little thing to get you moving towards your priority projects. Right now.
A lovingly created 56 page guide to help you have More Happy Hours awaits you when you click the link in the above title. Jullien sends out weekly emails every Wednesday, which get me thinking about action steps I can take towards my goals. . .and then, encouraged by his emails and articles, I actually take those steps. Here’s a bit on what he’s all about: “As a recovering workaholic, I believe in working smarter, not harder. That means being clear about my vision and values in my new year resolutions.”
3. Getting a handle on my financial plan
Denise Duffield-Thomas has helped me break through money blocks, figure out my pricing for programs and services, and use be/do/have daily to achieve my goals and upgrade my life. I’m going to go through Denise’s programs again starting in January to start off my year on the right foot. I have plenty of adventures planned for 2015, and need to create a financial plan and welcome in more abundance in order to get to do all those fun things.
Are you using any resources to help you prepare for a successful 2015? I would love to know how you’re reflecting on 2014!
