As we close in on the end of the year now is the time that I like to look back and take stock of the successes I’ve had over the past twelve months. I do this for two reasons:
- to help me remember all the positives and truly appreciate where I’m at in my life today.
- to help me think about what I want to do more of, less of, what’s just right, and what’s missing from my life.
I learned this approach about four years ago from one of my mentors, Walt Sutton. Walt suggested that I write out my top ten success from the previous year. When I started the list I assumed I’d have trouble finding ten, in fact I could think of a number of things that I wish I would have done differently. As it turns out, I finished writing my list when I hit #27!
So before you begin planning your goals for next year, what are your top ten accomplishments for this past year?
