Do you have a system that you use to evaluate last year and prepare yourself for next year? Scott Hodge posted a very helpful blog post a few years ago that helped me to clarify the end of the year malaise that can set in during late cold December evenings. Scott provides an excellent practical framework to look back and look ahead.
I've picked a few of my favorite questions to ask.:
- If the last year were a movie of your life, what would the genre be?
- What did you accomplish this past year that you are the most proud of?
- What was missing from last year as you look back?
