Below is an insightful post written for Mind Key last year by Tara Ann Lesko. Even though the post talks about 2015, this New Year is no different (and DragonTree is offering a new version for 2017). While many people use the New Year to create resolutions, we prefer to create goals and to make plans. Just changing the terms we use make our thoughts more concrete. Use your time wisely this new year and check this planner out!
2015 went by in a blur, as years often do when you are 30 or 40 plus. We are all familiar with the clichéd New Year’s resolutions made in late December while we’re entwined in tinsel and credit card debt. You know the type; lose weight, save money, exercise more, quit smoking, quit my job, quit complaining… You get the idea. But how many of us really take the time to physically map out and visualize an ideal year?
|Sample Page from Rituals for Living – Dreambook & Planner|
Craft – This is the mind map section, with beautifully drawn mandalas as your cores. If you retain more through visualization, this section will probably be heavily tabbed.
Ritualize – Do not mistake ritual for scheduling because this is so much more than writing a to-do list on a time chart. This section is about making the process of finding your true self vital, fun, and a meaningful part of your daily life.
Plan – Broken down into year, quarter, month, and week, this last section is where you keep track of your appointments and to-do’s. But most importantly, this is where you keep a record of your progress towards your big dreams, you true happiness, and your overall health.
The key to the Rituals Dreambook is authenticity. If you are not going to express no-holds-bar honesty, the book will have little impact on what you want to accomplish – reaching your highest potential and your ultimate purpose in this too-short existence.
