The New Year is a few days away and it won’t be long when we will start counting seconds and with rejoicing, shouts and lots of calls and texting welcome friends and families into a new stretch of 365 days. After the joyous diversion of Christmas and probably for some, the exhilaration and relish found opening their gifts, we might find ourselves in thoughts of recalling the highlights and low sides of the present year and speculate on what the New Year might propose and reveal to us. The questions below should stimulate your thinking for this process. Ponder on what you did, how you did it, why you did it, how you felt about it, what you liked, what you did not like and what you have learned. Be objective about yourself and your experiences as much as you can be. Answering these ten questions truthfully and writing down your thoughts and feelings about them could be valuable and revelatory for you to read in the years ahead. Add as much questions as you need
  1. What did I learn? (knowledge, awareness, skills etc.)
  2. What did I achieve? Give a list of successes and accomplishments.
  3. What would I have done differently? Why?
  4. What did I finish? Why? What did I release? Why? What still feels incomplete to me? Why?
  5. What were the most significant events of the year? List the top three.
  6. What did I do right? What do I feel especially good about? What was my greatest contribution?
  7. What were the fun things I did? What were the not-so-fun?
  8. What were my biggest challenges/roadblocks/difficulties?
  9. How am I different this year than last?
  10. For what am I particularly grateful?
In addition, reflect and write a list of all the things in your life you will like to let go of as the New Year comes in. Make another list of what you want in the New Year – new experiences, knowledge, material things, relationships, and business… whatever you want. When the New Year comes, make that list happen. One more thing; believe. Nothing can stop you always when you set your mind to accomplishing a goal.
