what is your theme this year?

Whether you set goals or not, why don’t you come up with a theme for 2010?

A theme can help clarify what’s important to you and filter out unimportant activities and time commitments.

Let’s give you an example:

Your theme for the New Year might be “SIMPLIFY”.

If this is your theme, then you should make it a priority to eliminate (or at least reduce) all the unnecessary activities that are causing you stress, worry, etc. Now, I say “unnecessary” because, as you know, there are lots of activities that may cause you stress, but you still have to do them…like work, raising your children, etc. The idea here would be to get rid of anything you don’t absolutely have to do. Delegate chore and obligations to others; take a break from a few of your committees, and spend some time decluttering and simplifying your surroundings (yes, I had to throw that one in!)

Another theme might be to “GET HEALTHIER.”

Obviously, this would involve changing your eating habits, incorporating some form of physical activity into your weekly routine, finding more time for relaxation, etc.

There are so many “themes” you could have this year; it could be business, family, spiritual, personal, etc. The possibilities are endless; however, make sure you only pick ONE this year. Save the rest for future years. Or, you could have a large theme with smaller themes each month. Whatever you choose to do, make sure you have this theme in front of you so you remember that this is important you.
