Your to-do list. What are you working on at work or in your job search, and at home? What’s on your plate? Get your to-do list out of your head and write about it. What could you shuffle around or push off to a later date in your to-do list, and how will you reward yourself when you’ve accomplished each item on your list?
Your plans. What are you planning to accomplish and experience next year? What are you excited about for this new year?
Your hopes for the next year. What elements of your life and career would you like to see change next year, and how would you like them to change?
Your future. When December 31 arrives, how would you like your life to be different than it is now? Where do you want your life and career to go in the following year?

Your health. How are you and your body getting along these days? What would you like to see change in your health, and how can you take steps to gradually make those changes?
Your relationships. Who is important to you at work and at home, and how do you and they support one another? Who do you rely on at work, and at home?

Your memories of the past year. What events, people, learning or experiences made an impression on you and affected your feelings and/or your path going forward?
Your career path. Is your current career path still supporting who you are and want to be, or is it time to look at your path from a higher altitude?
Your long-term goals. What do you want from your life and your career overall — to experience, to accomplish, to learn, to teach or to bring about? This is the high-altitude view from the Cloud Level. What is your life about, and if like most people you’re not sure, how could you begin that exploration?
Your memories. Lots of us live our lives and then seldom if ever think about the past, but your path so far is a goldmine for understanding of yourself, other people and the world. Write about your memories from childhood, from your school days and from the days since then.
Your tastes. What are your favorite movies? Who are your favorite musical and visual artists? If you are a theater-goer, dance aficionado orlive music buff, what kind of theater, dance and music do you like most? What have been your creative influences so far in your life?
Your intellectual life. What do you read if you like to read, and what do you listen to on the radio or online? Who do you share ideas with and formulate your viewpoints with? How do you get the intellectual stimulation you need, and if you’re not getting it now, how can you begin to do so next year?
The news and current events. What kind of news do you follow and what are your thoughts about events and people in the news?

Ideas. What ideas swirl around in your head — ideas for your life or parties you’d like to throw or the screenplay you want to write or that crazy idea about getting a Bernese Mountain Dog puppy. Write about your practical and out-there ideas. Look at them and ask “What is this idea telling me?” Maybe you are meant to get a puppy after all.
Your journey. It isn’t easy being a grownup. There are way too many things to deal with. How are you holding up in your journey? What are you thinking about? What’s in your way, and how can you tunnel under it, vault over it, make a hole through it or sail right by it?
Dreams and signals. Write about your dreams and daydreams, the images and sounds that catch your attention and the little synchronistic things that happen in your life and give you a little buzz, like static electricity. The more awake you get to your own existence and your path the more you’ll notice interesting coincidences and themes emerging. Write about them!
Your persona. Who are you at work, and who are you with your friends? How are those people different? Are the differences healthy and fun for you — like playing different parts in different plays at the same time — or are the gaps between your home-self and your work-self stressful for you? How could you bring yourself to work next year and speak with your own voice?
