Usually my Weekly Retreats post is filled with blogs that I found interesting during the previous week. Because it is the beginning of a brand new year, I thought that perhaps this week, it might be nice to include a round-up of posts that are specifically designed to help get you organized for the new year ahead.
- Chalene Johnson’s 30 Day Push. I’ve done this several times…usually when I need a tune-up on focusing on my goals. I really like the idea of a Push Goal – that thing that rules everything. For me, this year, my push goal relates to my word of the year – making my way home. I now need to go through my Awesome Notes app and update everything so that my days are aligned with my Push Goal.
- Do What You Love‘s New Year Revolution. Are you ready to turn your dreams into reality? Work your way through DWYL’s New Year’s Revolution.
- Susannah Conway‘s Unraveling the Year Ahead. I used this last year and loved how it allowed me to map out what I wanted in the new year. I’ll be sitting down this weekend to complete it for 2015.
- Jamie Ridler’s Design Your Year. Pretty much anything Jamie does, I love. These are some great questions to get you thinking about what you want in 2015.
- Alexandra Franzen‘s 5 Questions for a Bright, Clear, & Focused New Year. Simple and beautiful.
- Alexandra Franzen’s What Are you Devoted to Creating? A worksheet to help you clarify your desires and passions.
- Victoria Musgrave‘s How to Do a Year End Review. It is a good thing to take stock of the year that has gone before so you are better prepared for the year that is coming.
- Vivienne McMaster‘s 100 Word of the Year Ideas. I’ve already gotten my word of the year, but this is a great list.
- Your Courageous Life‘s 2015 Courageous Living Planner. Only available until January 15, so hop on it!
- Quinn Creative‘s Guide to Choosing a Word of the Year. Quinn has some great suggestions if you’re struggling to come up with a word for the year.
- Daring to Live Fully‘s 36 Prompts to Help You Plan an Awesome 2015
- Seth Godin‘s What’s Next – Questions to help set you on a path for 2015.
- Zen Habit‘s 5 Ideas to Create an Amazing 2015. I really like the monthly focus. Good stuff there.
- Danielle LaPorte‘s Desire Map. I’ve identified my Core Desired Feelings, and I’m excited about how they can help me create goals and intentions that are aligned with how I want to feel.
- A Life Less Bullshit‘s 2015 Goal Setting Kit. Again – more great stuff.
Now, I certainly don’t recommend doing ALLLLLLLL of these things. However, tackling a few of them over the next month might not be a bad thing. Coming back to something several times or looking at it from different angles can help us get clearer about what we want and why. Take a look at all of these resources and choose a few to dive into more deeply.
What resources are you using to plan 2015? Share them with me because I definitely open to whatever i can use to make 2015 my best year yet!
