Your life in 2011... How does it look?

Are you psyched to be starting another new year?

I am. Back in the day when I used to keep a paper appointment book, I loved to scan the blank pages at the beginning of the year, imagining how they would be filled. Looking at an empty Google calendar on a screen doesn’t quite have the same sense of romanticism, does it?

Nonetheless, the year ahead is like a blank canvas that can be filled in however we wish. The possibilities are endless, but you have to be proactive about setting things up so you’re living the life you want. For most people, that’s the hard part—figuring out what it is that you want.

The good news is, once you know what you want, all you have to do is devise a plan to make it happen. And once you start taking the steps toward your goal, I guarantee that like magic, the right people and circumstances will come into your life to help nudge you along on your path to greatness.

But you must make a conscious decision to get on that path! Why live aimlessly, accepting whatever life gives you, when you can live with determination? You know how people say life is a journey? Well, I took two cross-country trips in the past few months—do you think I had a map with me? Of course!

Now is a great time to put some thought into where you want your life to go in 2011. On Thursday, I’ll give you some guidelines for creating your road map. In the meantime, start thinking about your destination!

It’s all so exciting…

Ok, I know what I want and I certainly want to be on the path to get there.

Anxiously awaiting the guidelines. :)

I can't wait to hear about these guidelines.

For me I need to sit back and think about what I want. I know some good things are in store, but I feel even better things could happen if I make them!

I'm enjoying your book sooooo much, and so is my newly divorced friend Robin, who sorely needed to laugh out loud.

2011 is a wide open book for me...I know I need to kick it up a notch in order to live the life I want...so your Thrs. post is much anticipated.

Meanwhile, I'll just suck down some more coffee....

Very good advice Linda...hoping things calm down in our house so I can get myself pulled together and more organized. One thing I want to do is meet with you for lunch in 2011....any chance? Hope you had a good Christmas. Happy New Year my friend.
