While we’re waiting on the official start to the New Year, let’s write three things:
- what we want from 2015
- why we want it and
- how we’re going to get it
What do I want?
I want to be more productive. (Too broad. Start again.) I want to spend two hours of focused, uninterrupted time each Monday morning writing my book.
Why do I want this?
I enjoy writing. Writing brings me a sense of relief and accomplishment. I want readers to derive pleasure from what I write.
How am I going to make this happen?
I am going to block 10am – 12 pm on my calendar each Monday morning. Every Sunday night, I will spend a few minutes envisioning sitting at the computer and steadfastly typing. At 9:55am on Monday morning, I will sit for a few minutes and remember WHY blocking this time to write is important to me (see above). At 10a, I will open my Word document (or Mac alternative), take a few relaxing breaths and type until noon, at which time I will obediently close my application and look forward to the following Monday.
Use this three-step process for each of your resolutions, refer to them weekly (not just in January), relax and watch as your desires materialize.
Here’s to a 2015 full of fulfilled desires!Back to Blog
