We are entering yet another new year in the grips of a pandemic. You had probably hoped we’d be on the other side by now. My youngest son lives and
works in Japan, and I haven’t seen him for 2 years due to their strict travel regulations. Talking to him this morning he suggests that there probably isn’t any point in putting a trip to Japan on my vision board for this year either.
You may be thinking about New Year Resolutions, plans, dreams, or desires for the coming year. Or you may be making vision boards or dream boards. If the past 2 years have taught us anything, it has surely given us clarity about what is important to us.
This is a good time of year to reflect on what worked well for you last year, and what you did that you loved. This will help you to get clear on what you want in the future. Sometimes we have such a long list that we set ourselves up to fail. We feel overwhelmed by everything we have planned to do, so we do nothing.
A good exercise to do is to focus on the areas of life that are important to you and reduce them down to 3-5 categories. You might think that is too few, but the more you have the less likely you are to do any of them. The kind of category I mean might include: Travel, Health, Fitness, Family, Giving, Gardening, Nature, Cooking, Learning, Adventure, Experiences, Self-Care, Sport, Business, Relationships… find your own.
Only you can decide what’s important to you right now. It may be something you haven’t considered before; it may be something completely different to previous years. It doesn’t matter. You get to choose.
I am running Vision Board Workshops in January; it looks like they will all be online now due to COVID. There is still a faint possibility that the one in West Wickham might be face-to-face, but I can’t guarantee it. Find out more HERE
