Today, I am in a podcast episode with sara from Me And Orla, which I am so so excited about! In it we discuss my journey with niching, newsletters, leaping, money but primarily all about The January Book.
You can listen here. I love a good podcast interview and am always quite honest, and this is no exception!
So I thought today would be a good day to release my January Book basics download, a walkthrough of the main elements of the January Book to get you started, for those that are already thinking about 2019.
The Life Book, January edition, is a planning and review journalling process my husband and I came up with 10 years ago. Through many years of trial and error we have designed a system that results in meaningful reflection and planning with heart; a system that really works. It guides you to find your big picture and create goals that help you get there, even in small ways. It’s all about making goals that feel good (rather than feel like punishments, all too familiar in the ‘new year, new you’ BS). It’s ultra adaptable to your life and circumstances; whether you work in a busy 9-5, part time from home; love or hate your career, or a mixture of all of the above. It works whether you’re in a relationship or not, whether you have kids or not. It’s focus is holistic and looks at the whole; although if you want to laser down on a few key areas the system supports that too.
It is primarily an individual process, something to do for you, but it is also amazing to do collaboratively with your significant others . I have seen again and again, both in my relationship and in the relationships of previous January Bookers, that doing this process with your partner can lead to surprising and important discussions and can help you to be honest and strategic not just about work but about your personal life too.
The system is effective because of how little we stop to just look at our lives. We get so caught up in the details of our everyday that we forget to stick our heads up above the noise and just look at where we are against where we’d like to be. It’s so simple, yet so flippin’ powerful.
We are calling this overall process “The Life Book” because this is about far more than January musings, this is a process to guide you throughout the whole year. But It will also be referred to The January Book in January, the June Book in June etc.

Any questions, let me know.
Have you got to the new year planning stage yet? or still focussed on Christmas? I’m sort of split between the 2, we still have most of Christmas to organise but i’m weirdly chilled about it?! and also really looking forward to going through the January Book process myself, too.
Sending festive cheer to you. It can be a weird old time of year, make sure you take it as easy as possible.
