How can we look forward in a positive way to 2013 whilst remaining engaged in the here and now? Gaining clarity on the here and now can help us look forward in a positive and action orientated way.
Here are my tips for how I start to shed my leaves each autumn so I can start to re-grow in the New Year.
Clarify what you are doing in the present. Some people like to blog, keep a journal, practise mindfulness, or meditate. If you are not familiar or comfortable with any of these maybe you could write a simply lists.
I love a list, and they are key to my autumnal activity of valuing my present and honouring my potential. This is what I do. If you would like to have a go, just grab some paper and a pen. List all of the things you do. This can include everything from your job, your family, your home, your hobbies, and anything else you spend your time doing. The idea is for this to reflect your present.
Clarify what you want to happen in the future. Let’s look forward at what you want to spend your time working towards in the 2013. This time list of all of the things you enjoy, and all of the things you would like to do more of, regardless of if you actually do them at the moment or not! When you two lists are complete you have your present and your fantasy blue print for 2013.
When I have finished my lists I can start to make some GOALS! I would like to set you a challenge. Spend some time over the next week writing your lists. If you would like a free crash course into how to can transform your fantasy blue print into some realistic future focused dream busting goals come back next week.
