The New Year is a beginning and an opportunity to get quiet, slow down and be intentional about what you want your next 365 days to be like. As an entrepreneur, you probably do this for your business, but do you do this for your life?
One year ago I created a tool to help me make sense of where I was and where I wanted to go. It was a wonderful experience and so now I'm excited to share it with you.
Filling out this one sheet of paper was incredibly clarifying for me. Once I finished it, I set it on my desk where I would see it every day. Within 3 months, all of my goals for the year were accomplished -- even "the big intimidating one" that I was scared to name.
But here's the thing -- it wasn't work -- instead it felt like magic.
The act of writing things down helps us own our path. Our words and our thoughts are powerful things, and this tool can put those to work for you. Here's what this process is designed to do:
- Clarify and understand what guides you
- Create an inventory of your life (today as it is now)
- Set your intentions for what you want to create (in the future)
- Get honest about what challenges you face
This is not a difficult process -- but it can be. It can be joyful or it can be painful. It is different for everyone. No matter what, I hope this tool brings you clarity. Feel free to share with others. And I hope you enjoy the journey.
And Happy New Year.
