As We Approach 2013…

Posted on December 28, 2012


NY2013During the last few days of 2012, take some time to reflect your year.  Think of all of the positive events and accomplishments, while also remembering the negative.  How did you deal with the difficult times?  How could you have handled tough situations better?  Now try looking from the other perspective.  What did you accomplish?  What new, great, or exciting things happened to you?

For each of us, our story will be different.  Take these next few days and use them as a reflection period to think of ways you can improve yourself and your life during 2013.  Maybe you want to advance in your career?  Maybe you seek a more balanced life between work and family.  Maybe you feel you don’t need to change at all.  Regardless of your situation, here is what I recommend you do before 2013.

  • Make a list of all of your accomplishments from the previous year
  • Review each item and set personal goals, either to achieve more success or to raise the bar just a little higher
  • Write down things that you didn’t accomplish and try to figure out what prevented them from getting done
  • Create a bucket list for yourself, as well as goals you’d like to meet

It is important to think through your goals, writing them down and visiting them frequently.  Goals are more likely to turn into successes if they are written down.
