At the beginning of every year lots of people always shout that “ 20.. will be my year. “ This is a beautiful affirmation that one should definitely say and reinforce as much as possible and then some more. However just saying it over and over again is not enough, it is plenty but not enough. In order for the year to really be your year decisions need to be made, plans written down and actions taken. But before you can even think about all those things, you need to wonder about what you want to accomplish in the new year.
Not the kind of wondering that I do in my wonderlogues but the kind of wondering that’ll eventually be translated into a plan. Or said without beating around the bush wonder about what the year will consist off or easier said the things you want to accomplish in the new year. Your wonder about should be giving you the answers to what all will be written in chapter 20.. (replace dots with the upcoming year number).
- What all will I have accomplished?
- Where all will I have traveled?
- What new skills will I have acquired?
- How far will I have stretched my comfort zone?
- What all will be ticked off of my “One-day”- list?
The above stated questions are a selection of the questions I asked myself. They were asked backwards because when making my word web I learned that I get answers out of me in that matter. Plus not too long ago we learned that the tenses used are important. All the more reasons to ask the questions in that fashion. Besides just answering the questions verbally, you need to also write your answers down. Not only for you to remember the answers of your wonder about, but also to have when looking back to this day.
Write down everything that comes up. Really, everything! Even the things that you think are completely out of reach or impossible to achieve. No matter how far-fetched, write them down. Remember you are the one writing your ‘’My Story Of I’’, in your book nothing is far-fetched. There isn’t anything you can’t accomplish in the new year or ever, except in the past. Even when you are the one thinking ‘’How am I going to get this done?!!’’, still write it down. There is a reason why that dream and/or thought came to you.
Same goes for the little things. If you wish to buy a yellow coat, this was actually on my wonder about in 2018, write it down. Try different flavors of ice cream, was also on my wonder about 2018🙈, write that down too. The smallest of things often end up being the big things, for that reason alone the small things deserve a place on your list. Second, they deserve a place on your list because it means something to you. It adds something to your ‘’My Story Of I’’. Whatever that is, is up to you to decide at a later time. Just write it down.
Last but not least do not erase anything from the list. Even when you can’t answer the questions of ‘’Why, When, Where, How’’. That all will be resolved later. The answer will come. Just make sure that you take the first step, which is knowing what the new chapter will consist off. Leave nothing behind. Really nothing, in other words write everything down. Everything, everything, everything! I cannot stress this enough.
Make sure that when you are wandering around in the new year, you don’t get lost and forget to write something down.
The next step is to plan your year.
