Have you been feeling the need for revised clarity? Evaluated evolution? Productivity that provides peace and stability?
If so, you aren’t alone.
It’s a natural thing that happens when seasons turn over or transitions abound. We respond to the light and energy of the Summer Solstice— it’s pulse of creative agency beating in our own hearts. We respond to the harvests of Fall—urges to take inventory. We rest and restore through Winter—walk the dreamy path and set intention. And we respond to the return of fresh growth at the onset of Spring—impulses to regenerate and start a new well up inside and around us.
A common, helpful, ritual many of us gravitate towards during times of transition, is some form of a Quarterly Review. These 5 simple soulful quarterly review questions align especially well with the high yang, left-brained, creative agency of the Summer season (or any “summer phase”—See the “ps.” below for more info on cycle wisdom)
Now grab a refreshing beverage, get comfortable in your favorite sun spot. Decide what you’re reviewing first; your business, passion project, life-style, etc… And put pen to paper. After you answer the following questions you’ll have a clear, energized, plan for peaceful productivity for the next quarter.
⁃ What do you hope to accomplish this quarter? What are you most excited to build/cultivate at this time?
⁃ What has been helpful lately? What has set you up for success or encouraged your progress towards the goals you have listed above?
⁃ What has not been helpful lately? What has been a pain in the ass, a drag on your energy, or a waste of time/resources?
⁃ What would you like to experience more of? What would be dreamy, amazing, and wonderful?! What does it look like? What does it feel like? What does it sound like? etc… Get sensory, get good-vibes-only. Get ready!… Cause whatever it is it wants you too.
⁃ What do you wish someone else would take care of? Is there something that needs to happen that someone else could help you with, or take off your hands completely?
What ever you are cultivating at this time, let it unfold naturally. Wherever you are in the process, let yourself blossom for your own joy! You are supported, you are powerful, you are on time.
