New Year’s Goals Template

New Year’s Goals Template

For the past few years, I’ve been spending my New Year’s Eve in a quiet way. Instead of partying with friends – although nothing is wrong with that – I’ve been enjoying taking stock of the old year, and setting intentions for the new one. In this blog post, I’ll share my New Year’s goals template, that may help you kickstart your new year.

While setting intentions for the New Year may sound like resolutions, it’s a more mindful practice. My process involves reviewing the entire current year’s activities, high points and low ones, as well as the people I spent time with. I evaluate and celebrate my wins, in order to create more. I also review my mistakes, in order to avoid repeating them. This is the time that I review the lessons that I learned. This process enables me to see how I’ve grown, as well as where my blind spots are.

After taking all of this information into account, I set intentions for the New Year: Things I want more and less of, Things I want to release, and Things to keep an eye on, aka my “Wait and See List”. This sets up my New Year in a mindful way.

After I’m clear on my goals and intentions for the next year, I start planning a new vision board to keep my goals in clear view.

Here’s a video of my New Year’s Intention Setting Ritual:

I also like to review my “Core Desired Feelings” list from Danielle LaPorte’s Desire Map, to check my alignment with them, and see if anything has changed.

When I’m satisfied with my New Year’s Eve review, I light a candle, meditate and speak my intentions, and then blow out the candle.

While I may one day return to attending New Year’s Eve parties with my friends, my current personal ritual sets up my New Year like nothing else.

Happy New Year!!!
