It's that time of the year again when we're all thinking about the new year. Making plans, doing reviews and setting goals. For the past few years, I've used a really simple template to reflect on my year and plan for the new one.

It won't take you 5 days of deep work to do. In fact, it will probably take you an hour of focused time and then some gentle reflection time before you lock it in.

AND, you don't have to be using Tana to use this template - you can recreate this same simple worksheet in whatever app you use... even on paper!


00:00 Introduction

00:45 Three guiding principles of my yearly planning ritual

02:36 The More/Less List

03:10 Visualise A Perfect Day

04:38 Areas Of Focus

05:12 Word Of The Year

06:32 Your Mantra

08:00 Set Your Goals & Practices

09:50 Create A Vision Board
