I’ll be taking some time this week between visits with family, doing some cooking and playing around to reflect on 2017 and to consider what I hope to achieve in 2018.
I don’t think of this activity as work as much as mindful reflection. I’ll wind up writing my ideas down as I’ll look to review them at this time next year. Some of the questions I’ll be asking myself:
- What brought me deep satisfaction and enjoyment this year?
- What challenges did I have that I overcame and from which I learned new things and perhaps grew stronger?
- What do I want 2018 to be for me personally, professionally and for my family?
- What one thing am I going to improve on during this year?
It’s almost as if this week is made for reflection, yet we rarely stop and give ourselves the pleasure of seeing our good work and using it as a springboard for more good things.
Best wishes to you and your loved ones for a happy and healthy new year.
