Your 2016 Year in Review
Personally this year has been a long one. I know for a fact it’s had more ups than down but for some reason it’s that time of the year where it’s easier to see the downs more clearly than the ups. Do you ever get like that? But before we get too far into this post I know some of you are just hoping for this Long December.
Rather than suffer and struggle through the month I’ve decided to move some of the year-end exercises and tasks that I typically save for December 26-December 30 to the coming weeks. These are some of my favorite things to do and I find them refreshing and revitalizing. In making this move my plan is to end 2016 self-aware, accurately assessed and ready to enter 2017 with a strong plan that will leave me feeling fulfilled and accomplished at this time next year.
I hope you’ll find these exercises useful and helpful in your quest to live a great story.
The first step is to review 2016.I came across a great post over at www.michaelhyatt.com the other day and I want to share it with you here and, of course, give credit where it’s due.
1. Read through the questions reading for clarity and introspection.
2. The next morning I reread through the questions and took the time to answer each question completely and carefully. I processed these questions as if it would be the last time I would have to deal with the situations and emotions that they stirred up. I knew for a fact it wouldn’t be the final time but I wanted the finality of treating it as such.
3. Over the next few days I thought about my answers and slowly processed the situations and emotions brought up.
