It is that time of year again… Time for a Yearly Review. In the past I’ve written about end of year reviews, here and here. This week I was reading a recent blog post by Leo Babauta of Zen Habits where he wrote about a process he calls the Sacred Bow involving a yearly review done in a very interesting way. He describes the process here. 

Sunrise No. 4, 2018.

I was so inspired that I have signed up for his monthly program of habit challenges through his program called Sea Change.  I’m very excited to start. He’s one of those people that everything he produces and creates, I find very helpful. So I am happy to start this year long process of focusing on a new habit each month of 2019. The cost is $15 a month and you can stop anytime you like. 

 An end of year review makes you appreciate all the progress you’ve made and help you solidify any lessons you learned from some challenges. This perspective helps set you up for thinking about what you really want to do for the next year. Of course, sometimes things change along the way but thinking about how you want to spend your time and how much you can actually focus on, is always a valuable lesson. You learn a lot about yourself. It is an opportunity to pause, stay the course or make a detour. I am looking forward to spending time doing this high level life review for 2018 and planning 2019.  

Lastly, some good news. I am going to London over the holidays. I am super excited about visiting the Tate Modern. Looking for suggestions from you all for museums to visit or must see places. Let me know!

Honestly, I am in need of a creative reboot. A holiday break will do me good. I will soak in all the inspiration I can find over the next month and return refreshed. 

So I will be on a holiday break until January 9, 2019. 

If you really miss me and want to read my Studio Notes, here is my archive of all my weekly articles for the past 3 years, over 150 articles. Hopefully you will find something to inspire you.
