The end of the year is a key driver of WHAT NEXT? moments. Few will be nostalgic over the rocky ride that has been 2020. Inboxes are filling up with year-end round-ups and 2021 forecast reports. Google’s year in search has landed.
Beyond the industry reports that flood the run up to Christmas – have you stopped to reflect on what you’ve learned and achieved this year, personally? If not you should.
Take a moment to stop and think. Recognise and be proud of getting to the end of a challenging year. I bet you’ve achieved more than you think.
Be grateful, for the time you’ve got back from the commuting grind. For more time with your family /dog / garden / piano / bike. For learning to Zoom / make Sourdough / home school.
This year might have been very different but it’s not been without things we can choose to actively learn from and incorporate into our goals for 2021.
Here’s 5 questions to get you started:
- What was I able to stop doing that’s had a positive benefit on my life?
- What was I able to start doing and what has that taught me?
- What do I want to continue to do next year?
- What has helped me most when I was stressed?
- What am I most proud of myself for this year?
Christmas holidays are definitely a little different this year. All the more reason to pause, celebrate & pat yourself on the back. Well done!
