As we come to the end of yet another year, the next one will soon be upon us. Then many of us will no doubt be setting our intentions and goals for the year ahead, hoping to fill it with lots of good things (and good people).
But before you do that, I’d like to share with you something that I have found extremely useful. That’s doing an ‘End of Year Review’.
Usually I’ll do my review towards the end of December or within the first few days of January. I began going through this review process each year in January 2009 and have found it a very powerful activity.
Not everyone may agree, but I urge you to at least keep an open mind and give this a go.
I was going to create a video to go through this process with you but then decided, “Why invent the wheel?”
You see, one of my role models and inspirators, Marie Forleo, recently created a video on this very process. Whether you complete your end of year review now, later this month or early next month, I encourage you to allow yourself a few minutes for this exercise.
Review Your Year In Just 3 Easy Steps:
If you’re not ready to do it now, make sure you bookmark this page or copy the page address and save it somewhere so you can come back to it when you are ready. Then watch the video below and answer the three simple questions to review the year just gone.
When you’re done, you’ll find you’ll find it easier to set effective goals and intentions for the year ahead.
Whether you choose to do an end of year review or not (although I hope you will!), make sure you take time now and then to look back over what you’ve achieved and what you’ve learnt so far. Sometimes we focus so much on what we want to achieve, we forget to be thankful for and to celebrate how far we’ve already come.
