The rest of 2018…

Happy Wednesday Peeps!

 

I can’t believe there’s only 47 days left in 2018.

At first it doesn’t sound like much, but when you think about it, A LOT can happen in 47 days.

 

We’ve all got projects to finish and changes to make and legacies to build. This is NOT the moment to be laggin’ and draggin’ like a soggy biscuit!

 

 

I want to share with you some of my favorite questions to help you clarify your priorities for the rest of 2018… so you can focus your time and energy where it really needs to be.

 

1. What are 3 things you really want to experience before the end of this year? 

 

—Maybe one experience that you’d love to have is… one weekend, all by yourself. Like a solo-retreat, with no clients or colleagues or kids or pets or anything. Two days just for you. Maybe that’s something you’d love to experience before the end of 2018. Yes?

 

—Or maybe you want to experience the joy of puttering around in your garden twice a week, getting dirt under your fingernails, feeling the fresh air and sunlight.

 

—Or maybe you want a morning routine that’s way calmer and simpler—maybe that’s an experience that you crave.

 

What are 3 experiences you really crave… and that you’d love to have in your life before the end of this year?

 

Grab a notebook and write ‘em down.

 

 

2. What are 3 projects you really want to finish before the end of this year? 

 

—It could be de-cluttering your closet, because finishing that project will seriously upgrade your quality of life.

 

—It could be writing a collection of 10 “thank you” notes to your 10 closest friends and mentors.It could be launching your website—finally.

 

Whatever kind of project feels meaningful and high-priority for you, write it down.

One project, maybe two or three.

 

Whatever feels the most important to you right now.

 

3. What are 3 things that would make your life a little more delicious—ideally, things that you could create for yourself right now? 

 

—Maybe having new curtains in your bedroom would make a huge difference for you, because you hate those nasty old plastic blinds and you feel sad every time you look at them! Blech! Begone!

 

—Maybe having fresh flowers on your desk would make a big difference.

 

—Or maybe putting cucumber and lemon into your water bottle would feel so special and lovely.

 

Think of a couple ways you could upgrade your quality of life right away—like basically, starting today—so that the rest of 2018 feels a little more delicious.

 

 

4. What are 3 things you could stop doing—or remove from your plate ASAP—that would make your life feel so much better? 

 

—Maybe you want to stop watching terrifying TV shows right before bedtime because it gives you so much anxiety. Oh my God, this was me, back in the day. I used to watch horrifying CSI episodes with my husband and then I’d have nightmares about murders and stalkers. Ugh. Not anymore. I cut that out of my life because it wasn’t good for me.

 

—Or maybe you want to stop going to your book club because honestly, it’s really boring, and you’d rather connect with your friends in a different way.

 

What else? What else could be removed from your calendar, your to-do list, your brain?

 

How could you clear out some space before the end of this year?

 

 

Spend some time with all of these questions.

 

 

If you want, you can make a date with a friend and go through these questions together. Sometimes it’s easier to figure out the answers when you’re talking it out, rather than writing it down. Or maybe you want to talk it out and then write it down. Everyone’s brain works a lil’ differently. Do what you need to do.

 

 

It is definitely NOT too late to finish 2018 on a strong, focused note… feeling empowered… feeling victorious… feeling like you’re steering your life in the direction you want to go.

 

Make a plan and rock it out like the BOSS that you are.

 

And by the way, when I call you a BOSS, I’m not necessarily talking about running a business or managing a team. A BOSS is anybody who takes charge of their life. Anybody who says, “I know what I want and I’m going for it. I’ve got a plan and I’m putting things into motion.” That’s a BOSS.

 

 

Boss up and claim that role. Because seriously, there’s only one person who should be in the driver’s seat of your life, and that person is YOU.

Let’s make the last 47 days of 2018… the BEST days yet.

 

We got this.

XOXO,
