How to Set Goals For the New Year
Looking Back to Move Forward
What could be different in the new year, if you took the time now to assess, realign and set brand new motivating goals that pull you forward?
In this special ‘New Years Edition’ vlog I’m sharing the steps that I’ve been using to set my new years goals for 15 years in-a-row now. It’s not just a planning tool, it’s a time co-create with the universe — and your future self.
A brand new calendar year is like a blank canvas, full of choice and possibility…we can tap into this powerful time with intention.
This vlog’s 3 simple steps will transform how and when you set goals, leave you feeling empowered and inspired by 2019 — and from that place, motivated and excited to design 2020.
And it will give you a beautiful yearly ritual to book-end each year, and head into the next.

Hi Renate! I’m so glad you found this process useful – and thank you for sharing. It’s so valuable to look back at all we have achieved and all the good things that happened — it helps us reframe even the difficult parts of our year that weren’t as fun (often into life lessons and challenges) and then from that place set our goals — exactly as you’ve done. Sending you the biggest hug and lots of love as we start a brand new year :)
