As promised as I finished up my “last call” of 2021- a list of great questions to ask yourself that will help you to gain clarity and to plan a year ahead that you will love.
Your big investment is in the time you give yourself to sit with a notebook without distraction to think and write. The more time the spend, the clearer things will become. I suggest taking some time each week to sit with these questions, consider your answers throughout January as you solidify goals and plans for 2022. Be willing to give yourself the time, and you will be rewarded with not only clarity, but capacity and peace. Take your time with these.
Questions for reflection:
What went well in 2021?
What didn’t go so well?
What did you learn?
What will you do differently based on what you learned in2021?
What is left unfinished?
What did you want to start, but didn’t?
What is still important that will carry over into 2022?
What is no longer important?
How would you like to have more fun in 2022?

How would you like to be there for your family?

Who is on your support team? – make a list of everyone who supports you in your life. Consider adding a coach and a good therapist to your support team if you haven’t already.

How could you make my environments more enjoyable?
What words do you need to speak to someone to clear something up, apologize, or speak your truth? Maybe this is the year you will do it- what has to happen in order for you to do this?
These questions should get you thinking! You will probably think of many more you would like to ask yourself, as well- that’s great!
Approach with work with curiosity and without judgement of yourself. Congratulate yourself for being the kind of person who is willing to do this work. Many never will.
