Happy 2022 to my All-Things-Community subscribers! Thank you for the time you take to read and engage with these posts. I’ve got a lot of great content planned for you for this year, and you’ll always be the first to hear/see any of it. 👍
Speaking of content, I’ve outlined 3 questions below that you can share with your community this week to kick off a New Year. Get creative with yours…you could…
Turn these into an image (using Canva for free).
Publish them as a series of posts instead of including all 3 in one post.
Create a quick and easy video (using Loom), and encourage your members to respond by video, too!
I’m playing along, too, so you’ll see my personal response to each question also included below.
What is one thing from 2021 you will carry with you into this New Year?
This could be an achievement, memory, feeling…something you look back on in 2021 in a positive light.
Me: Last year, I was proud to step up my physical fitness efforts in a way I never have before. In doing so, I discovered a love for weightlifting! I also got into the routine of a morning workout, which contributes to a productive mindset in my workday. I’m going to do my best to continue these healthy habits in 2022.
What is one thing that you want to leave in 2021?
Again, this could be a memory, feeling, bad habit…something you look back on in a negative light.
Me: Self-doubt. I know it’s not realistic to think that I’ll never feel self-doubt, but I know that I can work to minimize it. I will not let it keep me from achieving my goals and dreams!
What is one thing you are looking forward to in 2022?
This could be a goal, event, milestone, etc.
Me: I have an idea to create an in-person networking event series for LA community professionals, but so far, it hasn’t been safe enough to start this series. The extrovert in me is super eager to for work-related travel and events to start up again. I truly do miss the feeling of camaraderie from seeing colleagues and friends on a consistent basis. I look forward to the day we can do that again, and hopefully that day is in 2022! (Also excited about getting to meet my nephew in a few weeks!)
You don’t have to reserve these for community posts only. I’ve used these questions at dinner parties and to open up meetings. They’re great conversation-starters! Try them out, and let me know how it goes. 😉
