When was the last time you sat down with a cup of tea, a pencil, paper, and time to ponder exactly what you want to get out of your life? At the beginning of the year, I signed up for the free class "New Year's Revolution" by Do What You Love. I thought it was a good way to focus on my one little word for 2014: illuminate. It turned out be a wonderful way to shine a spot light on different parts of my life and make concrete plans for moving forward. The work sheets helped me think deeply about what I learned in 2013 and where I want to be at the end of 2014. I came up with four areas to focus on, and two of them surprised me a bit. That I want to focus on getting fit and helping Clara are no surprise, but my desire to become successful in my work life and end the year with a beautifully decorated house really will force me to change my priorities a bit. The worksheets were really useful for coming up with concrete action plans in each of these areas and creating time lines for accomplishing things over the course of the year. I decided to make January a month for "first steps." I'm figuring out the things I want to do and starting to make plans. I'm starting to illuminate a path for a wonderful 2014.
The class is still available, and you can download the worksheets here. How are things going with your One Little Word?
