For the past 6 years, every January, my wife and I take an evening or two and we map out our upcoming year.
We each get a few pieces of paper and use them to list the year’s important events, milestones, plus any goals we have or other things we want to do. Then we go through that list and decide when those things are going to happen and what we’re going to do to help make them a reality.
It’s a very approachable way to get a birds eye view of the upcoming year.
It helps us define what matters most to us for the year and what obstacles we may encounter. And year after year, this time of planning has proven to be a highlight. It has a positive impact on our year, and it’s also a lot of fun since the process facilitates some great conversation.
For this upcoming January, I’d love for you to be able to go through your own process if you like. (And you don’t have to be married — this is something that works for anyone and everyone.)
I have put together something simple and new. It’s called Plan Your Year.
Plan Your Year is a small workbook that walks you through the exact same process Anna and I go through each January.
The workbook is just $19 and is something you can do in a single evening. Check it out.
May you get out of bed on January 1 and get to bed on December 31, and in-between do what you want to do.
