September. We’re heading into autumn; crisp mornings, cosy jumpers, red and gold leaves on the trees. So much to enjoy.
And harvest time. The culmination of the year. What better time to review, renew and refine?
And plan for 2019!
Every tomorrow is an outcome of what I do today, and the beauty of it all is that today is happening all the time. Craig D. Lounsbrough
So – you need your journal, a drink, a comfortable chair, so you can spend some invaluable time assessing the past 8 months. These questions are there to start you off – you’ll probably think of more.
Overall, has 2018 been fruitful [productive, constructive, rewarding, successful]?
Will you reach your goals by the year end?
Have you made the best use of your time? Have you maximised every opportunity?
What has worked out well?
What hasn’t? Think about why. What could you have done better? Is it too late?
What needs to be completed before the year end? How can you ensure that happens?
What needs to be nurtured for the future?
What needs to be swept away?
What changes do you need to make – personally & professionally?
Who are the people who nourish you? Who supports you and lifts you up? Who is a positive influence?
How have you contributed to the lives of others – family, friends, community?
Have you always shown kindness, integrity, forgiveness?
Who is your accountability partner? Have you met with him/her regularly? What have you gained from these sessions?
Who/what is mentoring you?
Now is the time to start planning for 2019 and setting your goals. What visions and plans do you have? Are you ready to turn them into meaningful and realistic goals?
I hope you enjoy your autumn review.
