3 Questions to Ask Ourselves Before 2013
We’re only a few weeks away from 2013!
Where has this year gone?!
As we come to the end of another year, I’d like to invite you to join me in a season of reflection, final push, and preparation for 2013. (Yes, even in the midst of the chaos of the holidays.)
I will be entering these last few weeks asking myself these 3 questions:
- What are the things (or the people) that I’m most grateful for experiencing in 2012 and how will I express my gratitude? This may come in the shape of reflective writing, sending out some thank you’s to people who made it possible, taking time to look at photos & videos of that experience, etc. Simple yet powerful.
- What are the things that I promised myself to do in 2012 that I did not get around to doing and is there still time to do it? Very few things are stopping you. Go for it and give it your best shot. If it is something that has to wait until 2013, start creating a visual list of things you’d like to experience in 2013.
- What are the things that I can do right now in these last few weeks to better position myself to accomplish my goals for 2013? I’m not talking about a new year’s resolution here. Rather, I’m referring to an actual plan that is actionable. Are there things you want to launch or experience in early 2013? If so, are there things within your control that you can get going in order to prepare? Why wait for a new year? Get started today! Do things like organizing your ideas, files, calendar, to-do-lists, etc. to give yourself a head start in 2013. Who knows? This may even help you enjoy the holidays better knowing that you have things somewhat set for 2013.
The last few weeks of 2013 are a great time to refocus our passions and plans. Will you join me in taking advantage of this season?
