What is my theme for 2024?

What is my theme for 2024?

Your theme is the intention that you set for the entire year. It could be one word or a phrase, and it will serve as your guiding light for the entire year. It’s like your North Star.

So having a theme is a nice way to guide you towards the kind of year that you want to have. ⇒ Do you want to focus on building your confidence this year? Do you want to focus on your career? Do you want to focus on relationships? Do you have a new mindset that you want to adopt?

Maybe you want your theme to be abundance, joy, love, etc.

What can I do to embody my theme in the new year?

So, if your theme is self-love, your actionables could be: I’m going to journal at least twice a week, or I’m going to do yoga and stretch my body every day, etc. It could be anything.

How do I want to evolve in 2024?

What are the ways that you want to grow this year?

What do I want to release in 2024?

What do I want to release in 2024?

What are all the things that feel like baggage, that feel like they’re holding you down or holding you back?

This could be negative habits, a negative mindset, negative beliefs, or memories from your past that you’re ready to let go of, forgive, or leave in the past and not bring with you.

Take everything that you need and leave everything behind.

Don’t take what is not serving you; only take into the new year what is helping and serving you, what is supporting the new ideal version of you.

What are my main goals for 2024?

What are my main goals for 2024?

What are the main goals that are really important to you to accomplish this year?

You can start by listing all that’s on your mind, and then you can underline the goals that are actually important. Sometimes we mix up important goals with “nice to have” goals.

So, pinpoint the goals that matter to you the most. There should be no more than 10 main goals.

For each goal, write down why that goal is important to you. If we don’t recognize our ‘WHYs’, we can easily forget about the goal or lose motivation.

Each of these goals should align with the ideal dream life you are creating for yourself.

Which is my most important goal?

Which is my most important goal?

Out of all the goals that you set, which one is the most important for your year?

This is the goal that you would be most proud of, satisfied with, or fulfilled by if you were to achieve it.

Break down that most important goal

Break down that most important goal

Break it down by the months, and then by the weeks.

If it’s a big goal that would take almost an entire year, you can ask yourself: What does that goal look like in six months? What does that goal look like in three months? And then, what does the next month look like?

And what do the next three or four weeks look like?

In this step, you take this lofty goal and break it down to the smallest detail so that it feels real and very actionable.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
