Howdy bloggers of the internet. It’s 9.27am here in the UK on the 31st of December 2016 and I’ve spent the last 2 weeks planning the backside out of what will be my 2017. And whilst I am very pleased with myself that I’ve got a handle on what I’m going to be doing pretty much every week of the next 365 days! I can’t help but think I’m going to miss the haphazard letting life happen to me malarkey!
Ahh…I’m sure I’ll get over it.
I mean I’ve always been organised, I have project management background I make lists and I journal weekly, but this is another level. Literally I’ve turned in to a planning monster!
But anyway 2017 is a 1 year and it’s all about planning and planting seeds for the future. So I’m going to keep ploughing forward with my new plan of attack and I’m going to be resting on my intuition lever more in 2017.
So I’m figuring this is the right thing to do.
My word of the year is FEARLESS!
I encourage you all to pick a word to represent your LIFE (and BIZ if you have one.) It can be two separate words if you like. But I need to be fearless in both areas so I’m using it for both.
This is going to be the year where I don’t give a monkey’s flip flop about what anyone else thinks about me. I don’t need anyone else’s approval. So I’m not going to hold back on doing a Facebook Live because someone might not like my eyebrows.
This year is about bedding down who I am. I have so many facets that I’ve always found it hard to be my whole self; if that makes any sense at all. I blog about blogging, but then I’m also incredibly spiritual and I also have my offline business acumen and then there’s my creative, singing, art, poetry etc.
So I need to find a way to bring it all together.
I’ve chosen 200 goals for the year using the Leonie Dawson planners. Some big some small. Some I’ll achieve and some I wont. But that’s not the point. The point is that I’m going to keep moving forward.
Also inspired by Leonie, I’ve also created ‘ritual days’ Some BIZ related and other LIFE related; including; Massage Mondays, Fresh Flowers Friday, Poetry 14th, Date Night Saturday (Not told Tony that one yet!) And 7 things I’ll do every day which I’ve called MADCAST which stand for:
- Drink (Water)
- Community (interaction)
- Audible (listen to a book)
I’m working on my mottos for 2017 as we speak but inspired by watching the Eddie the Eagle Edwards movie 2 nights ago I can’t get: “What would Eddie the Eagle do” – out of head! Someone who never gave up and kept his goal in mind however ludicrous it seemed to anyone else.
I really hope you all have a fabulous 2017, whether you are planning for it or not. There is still loads of time to get your dreams off the ground. Heck you can start in February if you like! And if and when you do, I can’t recommend the Leonie Dawson Planners highly enough.
Have wonderful start to the New Year
