ANNUAL PLANNING 2023
Reflect on your last year, take inventory of where you are today, summarize a theme for the year ahead, Set S.M.A.R.T goals.
I have a great many exercises I engage in every year to help me gain clarity, and the one I am about to share is one of them.
Although modified, it is developed by an entrepreneur named Andy Drish from the US.
Every Year in January I like to take about 2-3 hours to reflect on my year, draw from my lessons learned, take an inventory of how I currently feel about my life, and then build out a theme based plan for the year centred around S.M.A.R.T Goals.
THE BENEFITS YOU WILL RECEIVE INCLUDE:
Deep clarity about your next 12 months
A clear and concise theme for your year to keep you centred and on track towards your highest values
A clear and on purpose list of meaningful goals
An accountability buddy to check in with you every month
The underlying motive is to continually gain clarity and align myself with my core values and mission. I credit much of what I have accomplished over the last few years to this type of process. As you develop more clarity in your life and learn about what you stand for, decisions become easier, clutter begins to fade and the world becomes more peaceful.
Knowing what to say “No” to and what to say “hell yes” to, is liberating. This is the type of freedom I strive for everyday.
