Lived this. As a list-lover, recovering perfectionist and a coach, this really resonates. I have lists and plans (and a colour- coded Trello which is a thing of beauty!) for my business but as I use this NYE to reflect and look ahead in my personal life, I use words as guides, intentions rather than To-Do’s to give me signposts rather than unrelenting and inflexible instructions.... it’s taken me years to figure this out but it works for me ... allows me to grow and adapt and learn within each intention while my To do lists and Trello keep me focused for work. Happy new year x

I loved this! and I fully agree with Diane (after years of resisting) that “Planning takes you out of the moment. There’s no quiet space to listen to your intuition.” I needed that and your analysis as a reminder. Thanks!
