The best teacher is a teacher called life. And when we reflect on the past we are capturing the valuable lessons that our life has to offer. So while it’s always good to look forward, set goals and plan for the future, it’s equally valuable to review the year just past. I find a place where I can be still, and write down obstacles I overcame, lessons I’ve learned, what I accomplished and what I celebrated. I take a look not only at my business but at my personal life as well.
This holiday season, think about taking some time to review 2009 and create your 2010. Here are some questions you may want to ask yourself to help you on this journey.
Write down the answers to the following questions:
1. What were my successes?
2. What did I accomplish?
3. What did I accomplish that I am most proud of?
4. What experiences touched me the most?
5. When did I have the most fun?
6. What experiences were the most powerful?
7. What were my major breakthroughs of the year?
8. What major obstacles did I overcome?
Now create 2010 with these intentions in mind:
1. For my body/soul/spirit?
2. My relationships?
3. My home environment?
4. My work/service?
5. My finances?
6. My growth/development?
7. My fun, adventure, expression?
8. In which areas of my life do I plan to move forward in 2010?
If you take the time to pause, review where you’ve been and set intentions to where you are going, you’ll find that both your life and your business will be richer and more fulfilling.
