2018 Creative Kickoff
goodbye 2017, and hello 2018!
The transition into a new year is a wonderful time for reflection, exploration and planning. Often this moment signals new questions, as well as a desire to make change. But how can we be sure that we're asking the right questions – and that the changes we want to make will be the right ones in the end?
The truth is there isn't a right or wrong when it comes to the questions we ask ourselves, and the choices and changes we make. Yet by starting with knowing ourselves – who we truly and honestly are, what our values are, and what we're afraid of – we can begin to lay the foundation of a new direction for our lives in 2018 and beyond.
I find the new year to be a time of inspiration, expansion and openness – a time to ask 'what if?' and 'why not?' But more than questioning, I love the new year because it offers a clean slate to envision, make plans, and create action that propels us forward and supports our making informed choices for the year.
As we gear up to transition into 2018, I hope you'll join me and your fellow Wayfinders to come together, learn about ourselves and from each other, and kickoff concrete action to move forward. Working in small groups, we'll explore these topics through activities and discussion, drawing on insights and inspiration from today's leading experts as well as on our own lived wisdom. At the end of 10 weeks, you'll not only know more about who you are and where you're headed, but you will have applied that learning through quick experiments that help you refine and kickstart your path in 2018.
I hope you'll join me – and invite your friends along, too! Here's to a creative, inspired and fulfilling 2018.
