The Story of Your 2023

Many of my clients have recently asked me to help them set goals for the coming year. And on this last day of 2022, I imagine that some of you are also putting the finishing touches on your intentions for 2023.

Here’s a different way of approaching the process; one that I have found to be fun – and effective.

As I shared in my last post, the first step in the goal setting process is to reflect - you must get clear on where exactly you are before you can decide where you want to go and how you will get there. You get to decide how you tell the story of your 2022 – so tell it in a way that serves you! Celebrate your successes and your learnings this past year.

Next, jump forward to the END of 2023. And tell the story of your 2023 from that perspective.

What have you accomplished?

What have you attempted?

What have you left behind or intentionally said “no” to?

What have you learned?

Planning 2023 from this perspective, with the end in mind, helps to ensure that you’re focusing on what matters to you, helps you dream bigger, and helps you set intentions with a feeling of accomplishment and contentment rather than a wistful pressure.

It has been amazingly inspiring to listen as my clients tell me the story of their upcoming year. I’d love to hear yours too!

Happy New Year, my friends.

xo, Ilse
