Backstory

After I turned 30, I did some soul searching. I was in a good place then, but I felt as though I had no direction. What was next for me?

I did a step back with a life coach, and completed a visioning exercise that launched my next 5 years. All the significant milestones since then have been pretty much according to plan: marriage, work, family... They are as they are intentionally.

Entering the 5th year since that exercise, I had that familiar restless feeling. Things were going so fast. I wanted to be sure I was doing what mattered with my time.

I did another visioning exercise. And, based on what I learned as an org development consultant and coach, I added action planning into the exercise. You need a concrete strategy to make things happen.

In 2015, I shared this powerful exercise of visioning and life design with some great people in a workshop called Your Awesome Year.

What is Your Awesome Year Workshop?

Anyone who goes through this workshop will come out with greater clarity and purpose and a concrete, practical plan to navigate the year. With this, the mindset of becoming more intentional and purposeful in decisions moving forward.

The YAY Journal

Aside from the online workshop, I designed a journal to accompany you throughout the year. It's a way to document your year's story as you go. Your life in each page, lived on purpose.

Simple and practical

The YAY journal is a set of quarterly notebooks to be used with a one-page Your Awesome Year spread. The YAY spread, the written output of the Workshop, contains the key elements to bring better focus to your year.

Its minimalist design is intentional. While there is a bit of structure to make things practical, it's gives the freedom to use any journaling or planning system (bullet journaling, Get Things Done, etc) that works for you, and document whatever you consider essential. It's light, handy and lays flat.

The YAY journal is meant to be kept like your favorite books. Yours is an awesome story you can look back on and celebrate once it's completed.

YAY for Meaningful Days

In this ultra fast-paced world, getting lost and aimless is easy. We waste our limited time and energy on 'busy work' at the expense of fulfillment. Your Awesome Year Workshop and its online version, aims to bring purpose and meaning back to your busy days. The YAY journal is the perfect analog companion.



Risks and Challenges:

Delays in production - So far, production time indicated by press is at 2-3weeks. We intend to be conservative about timing, and will order before the 3rd week of November. We intend to deliver beginning December 15, 2016.

Delays in delivery - Christmas is peak season, and there may be delivery delays. Will be using Fastrack as courier for next day delivery within Manila, but back-up will be Xend and Gryffon.

Live Schedule- as of the moment, the live workshops will be slated for the Saturdays of January. In case more sessions need to be mounted, Sunday sessions can be scheduled, or 2 sessions a day.

I'd like to share this with passionate people who:

- are busy but do not feel fulfilled

- know they are capable of much more, but are lacking focus

- use analog planners--writing on paper has its magic!

- want to do awesome things in 2017

Let's make 2017 more meaningful for you and others!


Make each day intentional, purposeful and blessed beyond imagination,

Kitty Ferreria

The notebook has crisp 80gsm ivory paper. Its pages are dot grid printed. It's 6 x 8.25" (A5), so very handy. It has 100 pages for you to fill. With sewn binding, it lays completely flat!

Unfortunately, we do not ship abroad.

We ship for free within Metro Manila, but charge a fee for provincial shipping.

The course will be available online beginning December 26, 2016. Access instructions will be provided via e-mail. Since the course is completely online, you will definitely need internet access. We recommend going through the workshop from a place with minimal distractions and maximum comfort...snacks optional!

The half-day Live workshops are slated for the Saturdays of January 2017 in Makati. Specific details will be announced as soon as number of attendees are determined.

The notebooks will be shipped beginning December 15-31, 2016. We will inform you of the status of the delivery via email.

The money will go to journal production, setting up the online workshop (the production and the platform), and marketing the live workshops.

The core content is the same. Either version will enable you to create a strategy around what's important to you to make sure you have an awesome year. However, read on to see how they may differ.

The live workshops allows for a balance between individual work and great interaction with like-minded peers. There are supplementary exercises and opportunity for on-the-spot coaching. The participants are limited to a small number, so the atmosphere is very intimate and relaxed.

The online workshop is good for those who cannot attend the live workshops due to schedule or location, prefer to work on their own (I can do a one-on-one strategy session with you, as an option), or prefer to do extended reflection when it comes to life design exercises like YAY.

The one-on-one strategy session is 60-minutes dedicated to working through your plans for the year. We go in-depth with your plans to make sure you are focusing on what matters. We discuss your strategy for achieving the outcomes that you want and how to overcome the things that may get in the way.

This scheduled session is conducted online via Skype or mobile.
