As 2011 comes to an end we begin to prepare mentally for 2012, don’t neglect to take time to assess your personal and professional challenges and accomplishments before year’s end. Here are questions to ask yourself as you embark on this assessment:
1. What are your proudest successes and accomplishments from this past year?
2. What people, books, events or activities changed your life in 2011?
3. Who and what supported your personal and business growth and success this year?
4. How consistent is your work with your deepest values?
5. What are you most grateful for this year?
6. What slowed you down or stood in the way of fulfilling your intentions?
7. What were the unexpected opportunities and what did you learn from them?
8. What did you put off that you know you need to execute by the end of the year?
9. What goals did you fail to achieve and why?
10. What big, major goal are you working on for 2012?
Now here’s a bonus question:
How can you bring more love, enjoyment and peace into your life in 2012?
Taking the time as the year draws to a close to think about what you’ve done, what you wanted to do but didn’t, and what you’d like to do in the coming year is a great way to end the year on a positive note. Be sure to celebrate your accomplishments, but don’t punish yourself for the failures. Trying and failing is the only way to make forward progress.
Wishing you a healthy, prosperous and happy new year!
