Mapping The Year
Welcome to a brand New Year!
I am so excited about this upcoming year.
Last year did not go at all like I had planned.
And that's what I want to talk about today.
I used Leonie Dawson's Life and Biz Planners last year.
They are amazing!
For me though, planners always end up being a guide, a map to follow.
And what a guide these planners are.
Even if what you write down in them doesn't happen, the fact that you have opened yourself up to the process makes room for what the Universe really wants from you.
Well, that's how they work for me, anyway.
I am very open to changing plans at the last minute.
As a result, there were times when I spent my time following a ToDo list, taking each step needed to achieve a goal.
And then there were times when something amazing would fall in my lap and I would have to let the Planners go.
Believe it or not, it's OK!
If there's one thing I've learned about "time management", it's really all about learning to make the choices in the moment that will consciously lead to the next value driven step on your path.
This will help build your choice-making muscle, allowing you to make the best choices for you in each moment, regardless of the situation.
So, maybe all the great stuff I filled my Biz and Life Planners with didn't come to fruition in 2013.
For me the planners are my "message board" for the Universe.
A place to leave notes about what I want from this life.
A place to get real with my Self.
A place to Create.
A place to Let it all Go.
