Mind Chi Chats – go backwards to go forwards!

Why is it important and effective to go backwards to go forwards?

Why go backwards?

It is still before the middle of January so time to do your 2021 year reflection (if you haven’t already!) When I guessed backward about the year and then compared with the reality, I was very surprised!
Please tell me if you had surprises too!

One surprise was how people focused it was in a year of much lockdown – however we zoomed and kept in touch MORE!!
Did that happen for you too?

Another surprise was that I had not achieved nearly half of my 2021 goals. That gave me reason to assess why and therefor what to do in 2022.
How well did you do?

Applying backwards to go forwards

Well, I liked that I made the focus to be in touch with my ‘family of choice’ and so I want to keep that up in 2022.

To help me be more aware of my intended goals, I will put it more in view and have a monthly review of progress. Further I will plan to do MUCH LESS!
Yes! a few goals that I will really make a priority.

Vanda’s 2022 direction!

And if I get my goals done before the end of the year, I can always add more!

So what are YOU going to do?

As you probably noticed, I have changed the name of this weekly blog because I wanted it to become more of a conversation. I may share some of the topics / actions that I am doing and would love your responses, ideas, questions, topics that are important to you. It is my hope that we can develop a dialog.

So please contact us!
Chi and I are standing by on the ready to take your calls and emails!

Chi & I look forward to seeing / hearing from YOU!!!

Marvelous Mind Chi Sunday!! Map your 2022

Yes! Sunday!! That is so you have TWO (3?!) wonderful days to play with this!

The ‘between’ time, this lovely gap is a wonderful opportunity to reflect on the past year and plan the next. That is what I have been doing, more on that another time.

Meanwhile, I wanted to share some possible map topics for your consideration:

Please feel free to mix and match as suits you! Also, I added an ‘OBSERVE’ branch to my map, as I wanted to include my observations on 2021.

You can, of course, go by the month or quarter, chronologically.
Or you could use the basic life sections: Mental; Emotional; Physical; Financial; Social; Spiritual.
Or any other way you wish to look at your life.

Please tell us what main branches you chose…

Even considering what your main branches will be is a beautifully clarifying activity – one of the joys of using a map.

I am not going to write much now as I want to get this out to you so you may craft your most magnificent 2022.
It comes with my best wishes for the most joyous, fulfilling, heart warming and safe year ahead.

Happiest, most joy filled 2022!
