Season's Greetings, Daniel!

Wishing you a warm and wonderful Winter ... and a 2020 that exceeds your every expectation.

Thank you for continuing to allow me to be a part of your world,

Your Own Game-Changing 2020 Theme! 

Want to have your best year ever in 2020? Throw out your New Year’s resolutions! (Only 8% of folks actually keep their resolutions.)

So, instead of 2020 resolutions, I want you to consider your 2020 THEME

Your 2020 THEME is the one or two words that can resonate for you and keep you moving towards your best year ever. It’s the antithesis of a “resolution”.

Consider the following:

My 2017 theme was DISCIPLINE -- and it paid off. Going through a painful divorce, I can honestly say that the work I had done to get clear on my theme allowed me to be confident and powerful in my new bachelor reality -- and in building a thriving new business

In 2018, my theme was RADITUDE. It was a melding of “radical” and “gratitude.” I wanted to push myself to experience gratitude all the time. And it worked! I loved that theme.

This past year, in 2019, my theme was HOME, where I prioritized creating the space and environment that I wanted to be in -- where I focused on being grounded, energized, and filled to the brim with community, connection, and comfort.  Again, it worked. Powerful theme.

Your own personal 2020 theme will guide you as your north star. It doesn’t have the sharp judgment that a New Year’s resolution has, instead it is your gentle reliable compass… always moving you forward to the person you want to be, and the life you want to have.

Are you ready to allow yourself some time and space to let your 2020 THEME find you?

Here is my simple 60-minute, 4-step process for identifying your own 2020 THEME

Step 1: Complete a Goals Grid.

Take some time to inventory words and phrases that are important to you as you think about a successful 2020. Consider two questions: 

  1. Do you have it?  
  2. Do you want it? 

From those two questions come all that you want to...


… in 2020.

Step 2: Do a Mind Map.

Complete a simple mind map to further inventory what your 2020 can look like. Brainstorm and free associate what’s important to you. I suggest doing it freehand, but this free online tool is terrific. 

Step 3: Sleep on it.

Look over your Goals Grid and your mind map, see what theme possibilities suggest themselves, then give yourself a night to sleep on the one that really speaks to you. Don’t rush this step. You’ll see what I mean... makes a huge difference in identifying the really powerful theme that will truly support you in 2020.

Step 4:  Make yourself accountable.

When you have your own personal powerful 2020 THEME, put it everywhere. 

  • Put it in your calendar so it pops up every day January 1 - March 31.
  • Write it on Post-Its for your bedroom and bathroom mirrors.
  • Tell the world -- post it on your favorite social media channel. 
  • Tell me what your 2020 theme is! (Let me help you hold yourself accountable to yourself) 

You have a 65% chance of completing a goal if you commit to someone. And if you have a specific accountability appointment with a person you’ve committed, you will increase your chances of success by up to 95%!

A personal 2020 theme is so much smarter and more effective than your typical New Year’s “resolution.”  I hope you try it. It’s changed my life.
