Hey Everybody. It’s Patti Dobrowolski with Up Your Creative Genius. All right. We’re coming to the end of 2021. And the best thing you can do for yourself at the close of a year is to really reflect on what did you do and what did you learn and how did you grow in that year? So you can optimize that success enrolling into 2022 and start to really set some outrageous goals.
So we look back so that we can look forward. All right. So here’s one way to start with this template. Find some superstar moments that you had in this year, where you thought, wow, I really nailed that. I achieved that goal. I really was successful in these areas and captured them. Then, were there any surprising things that happened that were strange and weird that challenged you and made you grow in some areas that you didn’t realize you’d have to. We know 2020 had COVID involved and that was a big surprise for many.
But 2021, this was a time when we could really expand and step into new areas. And so what strange surprises dropped into your world then? What kind of partnerships did you form? Who are your new collaborators or who are people that you think in 2022? Wow. I met that person. I want to pursue them. I want to follow up with them so that we can really have an engaging experience together.
Next, reflect on what skills you’ve gained. I mean, we all got really good on zoom last year, right. Or any kind of online format, but what else did you teach yourself? What else did you pull away from that? And it might be a personal way in which you are acting, maybe you’re listening better or maybe you’re communicating better, or maybe you learned how to use Adobe Photoshop better.
These are the kinds of things that I’m talking about. So capture that. Then look at the habits that you let go or mindsets that you dropped. Maybe these were old ways of thinking about yourself, your business, the people around you and wait, maybe you stopped smoking, or maybe you started eating better.
What’d you let go of that you want to continue into 2022? And finally think about your year. What did you learn this year? And all of the things that you captured in this picture and give it a book title. So if this year of 2021 had a title in your life, what would you call it? I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
Be sure to email me or DM me on Instagram at up your creative genius. And 2022 is going to be a fantastic year. So get ready to join me on January 5th, where I’m doing a free draw, your future workshop. I’m doing something different this year. So if you’ve done it with me before. Be sure to come back and join me.
And I’m going to show you some new ways that you can connect to the future of you, your future self in a way that’s going to pull to you the things that you long for. Okay.
