Where are you headed in 2017?

Do you plan rigid goals or go with the flow?

I share my unusual process for planning my life in this post - it doesn't involve SMART goals yuck!

It's much simpler, easier and feels better.

When I reflect back on my life all the amazing achievements that happened have been total surprises. Don’t mistake that for luck. I’ve had a very significant role in creating the surprises, but I’ve also let go and allowed the right opportunities to come at the right time.

Love to hear your thoughts on the post.

My annual 2016 highlights and lessons post.

I like to evaluate each year in terms of what were the highlights (travel and life), what worked well and why, and what were the biggest lessons that are helping me to evolve into a better me and a better life creation.

You might think you had the worst year ever, but if you poke your head up and out of your current mire, you might actually see the truth – that amongst the challenges and lows were also many highs and achievements. It’s important not to forget those and how strong and powerful you really are.

Share your highlights and lessons for 2016 in the comments on the post!
