This time of year is often a down time for many businesses with people taking personal time to be with family. This slow down in “business as usual” presents an opportunity to reflect and review the year prior. I invite you to go beyond shaking your head and agreeing with the next person, “What a year,” or “I can’t believe it is over all ready,“ or “Next year will be better.”

Schedule in 30 minutes and do a review of the year. In this article I am suggesting a 2 step process. First, start by asking the following 3 questions:

  1. What worked
  2. What did not work
  3. What is next

Take some time and write out your answers. [For more on this process join our network and you can get more detail and download the template we use for the review process.

Step 2

The second step to this review process is one I am covering in the ‘Weekly Live’’ called, Getting Ready for 2022. In this step, ask yourself,

  1. What am I grateful for this year? 
  2. What disappointments are still bothering me?
  3. What is one thing I will do differently going forward?

This step increases the opportunity to wrap up unfinished business so you go into the next year with a fresh perspective. These revelations do not have to lead to big sweeping changes. The most effective change is one you will do consistently. This is what makes incremental shifts in your mindset so effective. Here is what a few of my clients are going to do as a result of their revelations, 

  • Get up 15 minutes earlier to pray and get my focus.
  • Exercise at least 10 minutes a day.
  • Resist any and all gossip. (Clients have said that it hurts their peace when they engage in sharing hurtful gossip.)
  • Plan my week on Friday and leave work with a clear mind for the weekend.

What will you change?
