The Year in Review
As the year comes to a close how do you
feel about the progress you've made in
your life this year? Were you even clear on
what you wanted to achieve or do this year? If
the years seem to roll indistinguishably from
one to the next, then this busy period of the year
with holidays, parties, and visitors over
Christmas, hardly seems like the time to stop.
Yet by getting caught up in the seemingly
never-ending busyness of life, we short-change
ourselves of a great opportunity -- some quiet
reflection on the year that was,plan for the year to
come, and by doing so reinvigorate our life with
A key to motivation that results in success and
well-being is having a sense of competence
around what it is that we do. What makes this
tough is if we don't know our starting point --
upon what are we gauging our competence?
When we look at our life to determine our sense
of competence, it is helpful to examine our life in
its various components.
The following steps present a way to reflect on
the year and make plans for the coming year.
1) Schedule time for this reflective activity over
a couple of sessions.
2) List the different areas of your life, which may
include: family, relationship, social, career,
personal growth, finances, hobbies, health,
exercise and nutrition, and community.
3) Rate how satisfied you are with each area of
your life, from 1 to 10. Be honest!
4) Write a few sentences that capture the year
that was in each area; highlights, lowlights, or the
complete absence of any activity.
5) Rate and comment on the year overall.
6) Now consider the importance of each area
to you, rating from 1 to 10.
7) Choose personally meaningful goals in each
area, particularly those areas of greater
importance to you.
8) Communicate that commitment to
someone to help you to be accountable.
9) Monitor your progress by repeating this
process on a monthly basis from now on.
End your year on a high with something to
strive for throughout the coming year -- and
beyond. Make a commitment to yourself in each
of the meaningful areas of your life. Schedule
time to make, track and progress these
commitments each month for the coming year.
This time next year, you're likely to have clearer
purpose and measurable progress in meaningful
areas of your life resulting in greater personal
well-being. Now that's something to celebrate!
Merry Christmas and all the best for a great New
