ME Mapping: Creating Your Year

  1. 1. ME MappingCreating Your Year ME Mapping:Creating Your Year with~ Joy Meredith My Life 2017
  2. 2. Hi, Joy Meredith here! Each New Year’s Day I spend some time closing out the prior year and creating what I would like to bring into the fresh new year ahead. Since I began this ritual over a decade ago it has transformed my life and that of some clients and friends. It has been such a powerful tool I felt compelled to share it with you. I call my technique for mapping out your life:   ME
  3. 3. ME MAPPING
  4. 4. Working on My Life Creating My Year Diagramming out my current life and sorting out what’s working from what’s not.   There are 2 ways I use ME Maps:   Mapping out what’s next and creating the year ahead.  
  5. 5. ME Mapping.com You can find out about how to work on your current life at: … but what follows is my process for creating your new year.  
  6. 6. It is part visioning, dreaming, goal setting, strategic planning… all in one. I hope you take from it what is helpful and make it Your ME Map!
  7. 7. My Life 2017 Start at the center of the page. I like using a big artist sketchpad and Sharpies- but use whatever works for you.
  8. 8. My Life 2017 FRIENDS FAMILY LIVING ADVENTURES THEMEWORK HEALTH & BEAUTY LOVE THINGS MONEY CONNECTIONS Now add the categories that make up your life. Here are mine, but there are no right or wrong ones.

Add only enough to inspire, not to overwhelm you. I recommend < 5 items to manifest per category per year.
  10. 10. Whether you create a big audacious map or modest one, please remember:   Ask yourself what you really want out of it. Be brave, stretch yourself in at least a few areas. life is short

  13. 13. Even if you do nothing more-- opportunities, things, and people will begin to cross your path. Just the simple act of mapping out on paper will get your brain scanning for circumstances that are ripe for you to manifest your vision. [ That said, to live your most powerful year you’ll want to spend some time each week and schedule in your calendar bite-sized action steps that will bring your map to life. ]   26

  18. 18. The last thing I do before I complete the year is I review my calendar and note any significant events that might have occurred. I make a list on the opposite top page of my sketchpad and include: births, deaths, weddings, graduations, promotions, new projects, and any other milestones.
