My 101 Things in 2023 list has a bit of a different story than some other years! I took a slightly different approach to writing the list this year.
Most years I start my goal planning for the next year by beginning to write my 101 Things list for the following year at the beginning of November. (New here and don’t know the 101 Things approach to goal setting? You can learn about that here!)
Not this year though.
Thea, the founder and leader of the Cowgirls Over Coffee group that I have come to absolutely LOVE this year, challenged us to hold off on the goal setting, the planning, and the new year hype through the holidays and into January.
So instead of starting to write my 101 Things in 2023 list at the beginning of November, I held off. And instead of unboxing my 2023 Power Sheets right away, I put them under my desk and worked on my focus goals for November and December, and to be present in life as it unfolded.
I finally couldn’t resist the pull any longer though and in the week before Christmas I tore into the box and dove into the Prep Work in the Power Sheets. I LOVE the prep work.
Last year I’d already written my 101 Things list before I got my PowerSheets and so my mind was already focused around those as I wrote my goals for the year. My PowerSheets ended up revolving around my 101 Things list. This year, I intentionally did my PowerSheets first.
The focus and clarity I felt by the end was was incredible! I feel excited to work on the purposes I uncovered and rediscovered in my heart. Once those were lined out into big goals, finish lines, and daily habits, I sat to write my 101 Things list.
Normally it takes from the beginning of November through the first part of January to write my full list, and it’s usually pretty random. This year it took me 15 minutes to write it! My 101 Things list items support the main goals from the PowerSheets and help me nourish the life I want.
It feels good to have a renewed sense of purpose and clarity in my goals!
So now… it’s time for my
There you have it! My 101 Things in 2023 list, broken down to match and support my overarching goals for the year.
Also…is my word for 2023 pretty obvious? It feels right and fitting!
