The New Year is very rinse and repeat for many of us, which is why I so enjoyed this perspective from Daisy U about being intentional with our reflections so we think forward in the New Year from a place of gratitude and learning and can ready our minds for more!
Here's the full read, but the gist is to ask yourself and answer these 10 Qs:
What made 2022 unforgettable?
What did you enjoy doing in 2022?
What / who is the one person / thing you're grateful for?
What was your biggest win in 2022?
What did you read/watch/listen to that had the biggest impact on you in 2022?
What did you worry about most and how'd it turn out?
What was your biggest regret and why?
What's one thing that changed about you in 2022?
What surprised you the most?
If you could go back to Jan 1 of last year, what suggestions, learnings would you give yourself?
It's a list, but if you do nothing more than read the Qs, at least you get the point. We do a lot and retain very little unless we make the effort to be intentional in our reflections. For me in 2023, it's about listening more to learn more, slowing down to see more, and being more mindful with my time - both at home and in the workforce. Happy New Year!
