With 2023 in the review mirror and 2024 in front of us, it’s a great time to reflect and refocus on how you want this year to be for you.
Last year for many, was one of growth, opportunities, and new learnings that we can take to progress forward.
As with the start of any new year, many people are now ready to make the changes in their lives that they may have been putting off.
This makes sense when we have a fresh new year in front of us, BUT I say, why wait until the start of each year to change and do things differently?
I believe in Everyday Evolutions as opposed to New Year’s Resolutions!
Re-evaluating where we are, setting new goals and bringing in changes are accessible to all of us at any time and should be reviewed and renewed often.
January is a great time to stop and reflect on a few thought-provoking questions that will help you kick start the new year with intention and set you and your team up, ready and re-energised for 2024.
There are a million questions we could ask ourselves; however, I’ve found these 6 questions are simple, impactful and help you get out of your head. I’ve used these during mentoring and coaching programs to check in and help leaders and their teams recalibrate regularly.
It’s as easy as asking a few simple questions:
✅ What am I doing that I enjoy; want to continue doing and bringing in more of?
✅ What could I change or do differently to achieve my goals and be where I want to be?
✅ What and who do I need to say “no” to? (Create a “no” list to ensure your boundaries and values are aligned.)
✅ What do I stand for? What don’t I stand for?
✅ What lesson (gift) from 2023 can I bring into my work and life?
✅ What is my BIG word for 2024? (A word that you can align with your decisions, values and how you want 2023 to be for you.)
Examples could include: Balance, Focus, Well-being, Consolidation, Simplicity and so on.
Action springs not from thought but from a readiness for responsibility.
― Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Minor tweaks to your responses, on an ongoing basis, will help you create daily habits and rituals that all add up to sustainable change.
Remember, obtainable is easy; it’s the sustainable changes that last and make a difference.
When you have answered these questions, it’s a great idea to share them with a peer or run this as a team exercise. Like anything, knowing is one thing, but the action is where the magic is. Make sure you commit and take ownership of whatever you decide to do.
We look forward to collaborating with you on your continued success this year!
