HOW IT WORKS

What is a Yearly Theme?

A Yearly Theme is a word or phrase that represents what you’d like more of in your life, or the direction in which you’d like to go.


A good Theme is broad and acts as a guide, rather than a specific or numerical outcome.


Most importantly – a good theme can’t fail. A broad theme allows you to change.


For example, in The Year of Reading, you may start by reading books and ultimately spend more time reading interesting academic papers – and that’s okay.


If, however, you had set a resolution to “Read 50 books this year”, spending time reading academic journals would have been considered a failure.


The Theme System is flexible to accommodate your journey to a better life.
