New Year's Resolution Workshop

Defining resolution for the New Year is a tradition many cultures have. Setting them is one thing, sticking to them much harder. Claudia Disco guided the inspiring exchange among the participants and gave out a handy coaching tool, that can help to align as well your goals with your personal wheel of life.


Goals are there to inspire you, not to beat yourself up with!

First, celebrate 2019

1. In what ways did you grow in the past year?

2. What were you proud to have accomplished in the past year?

Second, set great goals for 2020

Understand your “why”

Knowing your why is an important first step in figuring out how to achieve the goals that excite you and create a life you enjoy living.

1. Why is this goal important to you?

2. Why do you want to change?

3. Why does it matter? 4. Why now?

Align with your core values

When we think about how we want to live our life, we are focusing on values. Values are like a compass that keep us headed in a desired direction.

1. What activities, experiences, people cause you to feel deeply engaged and connected?

2. Are the goals something you truly want, or are they something you think you should have or should be doing? What if a new law was passed that made your goal illegal, would you fight the law?

3. When you think about your goal does it give you a sense of deep contentment or 'rightness', happiness and/or excitement?

State your goals in the positive

Be SMART: Specific, Measurable, Action-Oriented, Relevant and Time-Bound
