It’s the end of the year and I hope you feel good about all that you did this year. I know that many people are looking at what goals they accomplished- perhaps you are one of them. If there are areas where you fell short, then you might be disappointed because you didn’t achieve the goal you wanted. Perhaps you had some financial goals for the business or there were some changes you wanted to make. I know I didn’t achieve all of my goals.
I was listening to Jack Canfield (of Chicken Soup fame) recently and he suggested additional ways to evaluate your year. You will see that you achieved much more than you realized and feel even better about 2010.
Here are just a few of the questions:
- Did you have any wins or progress in the arena of business?
- Did you stop an old product or develop a new product or product line?
- Did you identify a new market to focus on?
- Did you learn any new technology?
- Did you delegate some task in order to become more productive?
- Did you form any new business relationships/partnerships?
- Did you develop any new skills or competencies?
If you want to see his entire list, you can go to his blog http://bit.ly/fiUcCh, or you can listen to his December Ask Jack Canfield call where he asked these questions and gave many examples. Simply go to www.AskJackCanfield.com/replay (this will be his most recent call and the next call is January 5) or Ask JackCanfield.com/Archives (if you are doing this in January). This year in review exercise was the first question for the call.
I hope that 2010 was a good year for you and I wish you a Happy New Year filled with great opportunities.
