How To Start Your Year With Intention

Resolutions that stick are accompanied by appropriate goals and actions. So, let’s just jump to the specifics. 

Today’s blog post is simply an outline you can use to be really intentional about your 2019. Enjoy! 

(As a bonus to yourself, you can set a reminder for yourself every few months to encourage yourself to stay with your goals!) 


1. Which 3-5 relationships would I really like to deepen this year? 

2. What activities will support the growth of that relationship? 

3. How can I invite the other person to commit to this with me? 

4. What can I expect to be the outcome of more intentional and meaningful time with these people? 


1. What tops the list for ways I could care for myself better? 

2. In an effort to grow my internal cheerleader and quiet my internal critic, what is a new phrase I can frequently say to myself? 

3. What are the top 10 things that fill my energy tank back up? 

4. What would an aggressive and strategic regular re-fueling program look like? 


1. What topics or hobbies really bring me pleasure? 

2. How can I make sure those are fitting in to my life more this year? 

3. Who in my life shares one of these areas and what would supporting each other look like? 

4. What learning have I thought about over the years but never pursued? How could I start? 

1. Where in my career could I show more initiative or take more intentional risk? 

2. Are there things I do that I could stop doing or delegate to be more effective? 

3. How can I build regular strategic thinking time in to my week? When? For how long? 

4. Science is showing uninterrupted time is dramatically more effective. How can I create times that are distraction free, even if I have to start small? 

1. What needs to improve about how I eat? 

2. To be moving more in ways I enjoy, I should plan to be doing more … ? 

3. Do I do better when I have a new challenge or specific goal? If so, what is it? 

4. Does accountability help me here? What does that look like for me this year?

1. What helps bring me peace and joy? How can I be intentional about building that in to my life regularly? 

2. Many things help with sleeping better and lowering anxiety. Which ones will I incorporate this year for my improved well-being? 

3. Would finding some like-minded people to share my version of spirituality with, be beneficial this year? 

4. How will I take time to check-in and listen to myself more deeply this year?

As part of my changes for the new year, I am shifting to a once / month "Marilyn's Musings" blog post from Capacity Building Coaching. Meanwhile, you can sign up to my Luv Life Coaching Blog and receive monthly blog posts supporting your relationship too.
