Think about these areas of your life: work/career, relationships, health, interests and impact. Take about 10 minutes and use this worksheet to identify three wins you’d like to celebrate and use the questions to reflect on and celebrate those wins.
How many of you have set new year's resolutions that you don’t keep? I for sure have. In fact, research suggests that only 8% of people stick with their new year resolutions. The lack of follow-through on those resolutions can usually be traced back to not sharing the resolutions with others, and not connecting them to our values.
Activity: Values & Intentions
Consider one personal value that you want to more fully live out in 2020. Think of a value as a quality or behavior that you want to be true for you - how you live your life. I recently made a commitment to lean into the value of community - both personally and professionally. Here’s a great list of values to get you started. Use the second page of this worksheet to write down that value and why it’s important to you at this time. Then go back to the same areas from our celebration exercise and identify three measurable intentions or goals for the coming year. Make them realistic, measurable, and be sure to identify what habit or practice you will commit to that will support your goal.
Hopefully, you identified someone to do this activity with you, but even if you didn’t, find someone who you can share your work with. Do it over coffee or drinks and (as we like to do at Ignite), toast to your wins and intentions!
