Celebrate You 2011

Every year I plan a party a little after the New Year.  January is kind of a dull month after the holidays anyway, so one more party to kick off the new year right seems right.

I bring this up because, if you’re not local, it become difficult to come to my Celebrate You Party.  And so, I invite you to host one of your own.  Even better, host one at your company.

Here’s what you need:

  • A nice place that’s memorable.  We’re celebrating here, so let’s be festive.
  • Beverages, adult and alcohol-free.
  • Food is optional.  Last year, I ordered some appetizers to share.

Here’s what you do.  Invite the people, and give them an assignement.  They must come to the party with an accomplishment from the previous year, one that they are proud of.  For extra credit, they come with something they want to accomplish next year.

For the programmed part of the event, we go around the room toasting the successes, and announcing the intention for the coming year.  Throwing out that intention is powerful, because statistically speaking, there’s a better chance of it happening.  And, you never know who at the party has the key to help you get it done.

For you doubters out there, I had several last last year who thought this party was coachy woo woo crap.  But they came anyway, because I was throwing a party at a nice place and they thought it would be fun.  It was fun, because I don’t do unfun parties, and they all said it was validating and rewarding and that they’d come back and do it again.

This is a great way to mentally close out the year and get ready for having your best year yet!

Be Your Best You Today,
