This is the first year in a loooooong time that I can recall wanting to sit down and plan out my next year. To dig deep, to make goals and action steps, to get down in the dirt with my desires and plan. Maybe it's because I'm fully realizing the power of intention + manifestation (or rediscovering, as I have a feeling my childhood self was very aware of those powers). Maybe it's because I see myself as a Business Woman and Real Adult since turning 22 in September. Maybe it's because I'm tired of just winging it every year and not putting myself first. Whatever the reason, I'm determined to block out an entire day and look at the entirety of 2015. But to do that, I needed to gather some tools.
Enter first, The Desire Map by Danielle LaPorte. I'd heard about this book for so, so long but had never actually gotten my copy because I thought I knew what my desires were in life. But boy, was I wrong! I picked mine up at the Texas Conference for Women so it could be signed by Danielle, and since seeing her talk I've read the first half of the book twice and have gone through to identify my Core Desired Feelings (which you'll find out at a later point!) This book is seriously a game-changer. I'm considering buying three of the workbooks just so I can go back through the process continually in 2015!
The second thing that I've invested in this year is Leonie Dawson's legendary Shining Biz + Life Workbooks. I've heard of her work for years and finally (finally) visited her site, promptly fell in love and have been reading whatever I can get my hands on from her. When I started seeing information about her 2015 workbooks, I knew it was a no-brainer to help me take my life and business to the next level. I'm eagerly awaiting their arrival in the mail so I can sit down and go through them!
The third thing that has been integral for me to get my hands on is a beautiful 2015 wall calendar. I may be somewhat of a calendar/planner junkie (seriously, just ask my parents) but I feel as though each type serves a different purpose. For me, this collaborative calendar from The Strategy Lab + Emma Kate Creativeis The One. It's minimal, beautiful, inspirational, and so full of love.
