Welcome to 2021! Here’s Your Year Compass!

Happy New Year All!

I must be honest with you, a part of me had decided not to plan anything for 2021 and simply carry over 2020.

Yes, that’s how disoriented 2020 had me feeling.

However, I realized that part of what had been bothering me was how to take in all the lessons of 2020.

2020 was so challenging and yet so transformational, the biggest loss to any of us will be the inability to use the lessons learned.

Trust me, there’s no pressure here at all. I am not pushing myself or anyone to set any big or audacious goals. My intent is simply to document our intentions, what we want for our lives.

Why write? Because I have learned from my own life, that there is power in written word. I have kept journals for decades and I see most of the plans come to reality like magic.

If God has spared us to survive 2020, then there’s a reason and the least we can do is fulfill that purpose with focus and intentionality.

I want to be more intentional about 2021, ensuring that my energy is spent on the things that matter and I want to be clear what those things are. In a world full of distractions, having clarity and focus is like having super powers.

So, I am sharing this amazing tool, ‘Year Compass’ which I discovered in 2018.

I will be doing it myself and happy to invite anyone who feels they will benefit from it to join me.

I urge you to try it out yourself and with a few friends if you can. The process is sure to help you in reflecting on 2020 in a healthy way while propelling you to achieving your 2021 and beyond goals.

What is it?

A Year Plan: The booklet will help you assess the past year and plan the year ahead of you. The questions and exercises are designed to help you learn from your mistakes, celebrate your victories, and set out a path you want to walk on. All you need is a quiet few hours and the booklet.

Why is it good for you?

New year resolutions for the most part don’t work, however, planning your year is a good habit. It can help you become more aware of your successes and sorrows and make you realize how much can happen just in a year. By learning from the past, you can plan your future in a way that you don’t repeat the same patterns and feel more in control of your own life.

What do you need to do?

You need to complete 2 sessions or at least the 1st session.

1st session (lone wolf version)

– at least three hours of uninterrupted time (to look back)

– at least one hour of uninterrupted time (to plan the year)

– a calendar of the past year

– a printed version of this workbook

– honesty and openness

– a selection of your favorite pens

2nd session (group version)

– a group of inspirational people (2-10 persons)

– at least four hours of creative time

– a calendar of the past year

– a printed version of this workbook

– honesty and openness

– a selection of your favorite pens

The pdf booklet which you can print is attached here and available via www.yearcompass.com. If you can’t print it out, get a fresh notebook and follow the instructions to complete the exercise. Keep the notebook for reference all through the year.

From experience, I observed that even just writing down your plans keeps your subconscious mind working on them and this is only realized when you look back and examine how much you achieved.

Remember, written goals have a higher chance of success. We can also refresh the thread periodically to check on those who responded.

This is an opportunity to do something positive for yourself and start on the right track. Will you try this out?
