Finding a new way to frame my possibilities for the next year

Last week I had a great call with my life coach. I had felt stuck in creating my annual list of possibilities. There were two reasons for this. One, I had had an immensely rich year in 2017 and it was going to be hard to come up with ideas. But more importantly, I had realized in late November that I wanted to take a whole different tack on 2018 and that I wanted a year where self-improvement wasn't the focus.

We began to talk about what I wanted for next year (not what I thought I should want) and five categories began to form:
  • What I want to learn
  • What I want to practice
  • What I want to complete/end/let go of
  • What I want to create
  • What I want to experience/enjoy
These questions are proving a really interesting way to organize my possibilities for the coming year.

What might be on your list?

I appreciate this list and will reflect on it over the next few days as we prepare for the new year. Thank you for the shift in focus.
