Coffee, Tea, and Me

Coffee, Tea, and Me.

New Year

So as I sit and ponder 2012, I’ll share my 2011 with you: what worked, what didn’t and my hopes for 2012. But before I do, here are my personal tips for transformative follow-through.

Take inventory. Get a clear picture of where I am before planning where I’m going.

Review my bandwidth. How much room do I have in 2012? Don’t pack my life with goals ‘til I’m emotionally constipated and physically exhausted. Sure I want to stretch my wings and land on the moon in heels. But I want to do it without casualties and consequences.

What’s the emotional thread I want to experience in 2012? What feeling do I want to permeate through the pores of the New Year? Compassion? Unconditional love? The shift is the honey.

Be specific. “I want to save the world” won’t cut it. What are the activities that will help me make the world a better place? Hint to all interested in that one: GO VEG!

What’s non-negotiable? What feelings or activities must change or I’ll lose my mind? And how can I hold myself accountable? Writing this blog post is a great start! Putting it out there makes it real. When we keep our goals private it’s easy to conk out.

Make time for the magic hour muse. I’m always surprised by how much I accomplish personally and professionally when I give myself time to star gaze. Time to stroll and play without structure. Ideas come. Revelations reveal themselves. Ah ha’s take my breath away. Mindlessly flipping through Vanity Fair by the fire can ignite a revolution. You never know where the muse lives. That’s why it’s a muse. Make space for it.
