Quarterly/Yearly Personal Retreat Topics
Time to dream and bring those dreams to life
You are the navigator of your ship. At least every 3 months and definitely once
each year, step back and review the voyage you are now on. Could your life be
more interesting, more rich and fulfilling? Where might you go, where you've
never been before? Open to new possibilities for new destinations and new venues
and important side trips.
The Quarterly/Yearly Re-Treat Topics below focus on aspirations, holidays,
successes, failures, life lessons, relationships, health, finances, life purpose
- on what is most important to you.
Ideally, give yourself one full day every 3 months for life planning. Treat
yourself to a real Re-Treat. If possible, go away to a new location - getting
out of our normal sphere helps bring new perspectives. Really put your life
under a microscope and do an in-depth review. Then get out the telescope to
raise your sights and shoot for a new star.
Take a minute right now and book in your calendar a Quarterly Re-Treat day every
3 months to do this important review.
