It’s another year. In lots of ways you get to decide what this new year will be like. Sure, things will happen that you have less or no control over. But even in those situations, you get to decide how you will react or respond.
I spend 85% of my time at Dynamic Catholic, but for a couple of days each month I work with the very dedicated group at Floyd Consulting. Part of the firm consists of a large coaching practice: business coaching for leaders and entrepreneurs, and life coaching for individuals. Before one of our coaches starts working with a participant, we ask them to answer a bunch of questions. The answers help the coach serve the participant better.
As we begin this new year, I thought it would be a good idea for us all to consider some of these questions:
What are the biggest changes you would like to make to your life in the next 12 months?
What are the biggest changes you would like to make to your life in the next 1–3 years?
What do you want to achieve most in your life?
What is your greatest obstacle to this achievement?
What are 3 of your biggest achievements to date?
What dream have you given up on?
What major transitions have you had in the past 2 years?
What is the hardest thing in your life you’ve ever had to overcome?
Looking at the past 6 months of your life, do you like the direction your life is moving in? Explain.
What part of yourself have you given up on?
What are your primary stressors?
What is your definition of success?
What would you like your personal legacy to be?
This is an easy list of questions to read. They are not easy questions to answer. I’d like to encourage you to take some time over the next couple of weeks to write out your answers. It will be a life-altering exercise.
God bless you. Happy New Year! Let’s make it a great year. Everyone here at Dynamic Catholic is looking forward to serving you and your parishes powerfully again this year.
