Have you prepared for success in the coming year? Rather than make New Year’s Resolutions pick a New Year’s theme. A theme is easier to remember. It creates a clear way of thinking about your goals for 2012. A theme is also guilt free since you can’t break it!
To select and activate your 2012 Thoughtful Theme:
- Pick your theme – it should be short and simple. Here are some ideas: Eliminate, Launch, Breathe, Courage, Simplify, Appreciate, Content, Evolve, Splash, Rebuild, Balance, Growth, Fun, Creativity, Laughter, Abundance, Patience, Free, Revolutionize, Peace
- Bring it to Life
Put it on a post it note and place it where you’ll see it
Write a story or a poem about your theme
Draw a picture of your theme
Create a collage of images that represent your theme
- Use your theme to guide your decisions and direction in 2012
Perhaps your 2012 theme could be one of the thirteen virtues Benjamin Franklin defined. His list of virtues include; Temperance, Silence, Order, Resolution, Frugality, Industry, Sincerity, Justice, Moderation, Cleanliness, Tranquility, Chastity and Humility. For more information on these virtues and how he applied these themes, see this blog post.
