This is the third in a three-part series about getting ready for 2019.  The first post covered values and the second discussed goals.

The quality of your life is related to the quality of the questions you ask yourself.

If your deepest question lately is what kind of Christmas chocolate to eat next, this blog post will help!

The advent of a new year is a time for asking yourself deeper questions.

While New Year’s Resolutions are common, they are also hugely ineffective.  By the end of the first week of January, close to 30% of us have already forgotten our resolutions or abandoned the efforts we were making.

Last week we talked about goals and the week before that we talked about values.  They are inextricably linked. Goals must fit into your values framework for you to have the best opportunity to reach them.

This is your time to slow down and ask yourself the bigger questions.

Here’s a list to get you started:  

  • Have you identified the values that are most important to you?
  • Do your goals for 2019 align with your values?
  • Who do you need to be in order to achieve your goals?
  • What do you need to do in order to achieve your goals?
  • What healthy habits or routines do you have to instill to achieve your goals?
  • What’s the first teeny, tiny action you need to take for each of your goals and when are you going to do it?

Love and wellness,

David.
