It’s the last day of 2019. We’re about to start 2020. There’s often a focus around this time of year on ‘new year, new you’ and making resolutions. This can be tricky for a number of reasons. If we go about it consciously, it can be a sacred and powerful time of creation as we step into the new year. In this episode, I have some specific questions to help guide your process of creation for the new year. I also share some thoughts about how you can think about your goals at different levels — intentions, outcomes, and actions. I’m excited about this new year and new decade, how about you?
[3:35] As we think about 2020, what is it that you really want for yourself, for the people around you, your team, your work, and your life, personally?
[4:36] There’s a difference between fixing and changing. Change is more about choice, fix is more about shame — approach setting your goals, intentions, and resolutions from a place of change.
[8:42] Mike shares his creation questions to prepare himself for the new year.
1) What are the themes for 2020?
2) What personal qualities do I want to develop in 2020?
3) What are my top personal goals or intentions for 2020?
4) What are my top professional goals or intentions for 2020?
5) What is my vision for 2020?
[9:57] There are different ways to approach the process of answering these creation questions, but Mike recommends also sharing your answers with people close to you.
[11:23] There are different levels for the kinds of “goals” that we set. Mike walks through the different levels: intentions, outcomes and actions/practice.
[17:44] Oftentimes, we can’t create what we really want to create alone. We need support from those around us to help us achieve those goals.
[19:33] Mike is looking toward 2020 with anticipation. How do you want your 2020 to go? How are you going to show up?
