I know that 2005 was a heck of a year for me: it was busy, stressed and unsatisfying. I spent most of it feeling somewhat overwhelmed and constantly short of time. I was always running to keep up with myself, trying to meet my various commitments and with excellence. I made a new timetable, so everything was scheduled and gained a bit more experience in estimating how long things would take.
Somewhere in that process most of the joy in my work just drained away as duty overpowered enthusiasm and routine stamped out creativity.
I’m glad 2005 has finally come to a close and I have high hopes for 2006. The trouble is, I can’t seem to figure out just what those hopes are. By the end of my holiday I want to figure out a new life work balance which can give me a healthy, happy life with a good income and lots of enjoyment and feelings of achievement.
Tony Robbins is offering a free 18-page workbook called The Power of Momentum: 7 Steps to a Fulfilling 2006 (55Kb PDF).
If you haven’t yet worked out your 2006 goals, you may find this workbook helpful in doing so. It will guide you through a series of questions to review your results from 2005 and get clear about what you intend to accomplish in 2006.
The “7 Steps” are:
- Get Clear.
- Get Certain.
- Get Excited.
- Get Focused.
- Get Committed.
- Get Momentum.
- Get Smart.
The workbook looks very useful and practical. I think I could spend a good afternoon completing the exercises and maybe come up with something concrete to point towards this year.
