Thoughful Themes

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:

  1. 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
  2. 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
     
  3. 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.
