After diving deep into a business audit, we’re now going to spend a little time exploring your creative life. This is here to help you really dive deep into what’s felt good and what hasn’t this year, and get super focused on what to prioritise and make space for next year too. 

1. Your lifestyle

First up we’re going to explore how you’ve been feeling in your creative life this year. Ask yourself:

  • How have you felt in your life this year? What different seasons have you navigated?
  • What has brought you joy this year?
  • What have you found challenging?
  • What are some of your highlights of 2016?
  • What would you like more of next year?
  • What would you like less of?

What I hope comes to the surface for you here is some clarity and exploration around how you’ve felt in your life throughout 2016, and what you’d like to make space for next year too. 

2. Your creativity

Now we’re going to explore how you’ve been feeling creatively this year. Ask yourself:

  • How have you felt creatively this year?
  • What creative projects have you enjoyed the most this year?
  • What are some of your creative highlights of 2016?
  • What would you like more of creatively next year?
  • What would you like less of?

Hopefully what you discover here is what 2016 has looked liked for you creatively, and also how you’d like to feel in 2017. 

3. Your relationships

Now to dive deep into your relationships. Ask yourself: 

  • How have you felt in your relationships and connections this year?
  • What has felt good? What hasn’t felt good?
  • What lessons have you learned in your relationships this year?
  • What would you like more of in your relationships next year?

Hopefully what you can find here is come clarity around how you’ve felt in your relationships this year, and what you’d more of and less of in 2017 too. 

4. Your self-development

Let’s explore how you’ve grown and changed in 2016. Ask yourself:

  • How have you grown, changed, and evolved in 2016?
  • How have you invested your time and energy and resources into your self-development this year?
  • What would you like to make space for when it comes to your self-development next year?

My hope here is that you can see how you’ve grown this year, and also what you’d like to prioritise in your self-growth in 2017 too. 

5. Your personal finances

Finally, we’re going to dive deep into your personal finances. Ask yourself:
