12 QUESTIONS TO GET A JUMP ON THE YEAR AHEAD

Jan 19, 2013

12 QUESTIONS TO GET A JUMP ON THE YEAR AHEAD

THE YEAR PAST

1. What went well?

Identify goals you accomplished or advanced towards; note anything else that went well and is worth highlighting.

2. In what ways did I grow and evolve?

How were you tested or challenged and how did you grow as a result? What new skills, knowledge, ideas and insights (in your work and personal life) have made you better or different this year?

3. What were my favourite moments of 2012?

Savouring positive experiences has been proven to be a successful strategy for building optimism, resilience and mojo – all essential ingredients to personal and professional well being.

4. What do I need to clean out or let go of now to be ready to start fresh in 2013?

Consider both your physical space (your office, your home) as well as your emotional and mental mindsets.

5. What and who am I most grateful for right now?

Consider the people in your life, including co-workers, family and friends; the events; the unexpected surprises; make this a juicy list!

6. If there were a theme for me in 2012, what was it?

Think of the year as a whole, and fill in the blank: “This was the year of -----.”

 

THE YEAR AHEAD

7. What are my goals for 2013?

Consider professional goals as well as personal goals. Consider small, medium and “big-hair audacious” goals.

8. Which of my strengths and assets will I tap into to realize my goals?

Consider your personal strengths but also your assets such as your network, knowledge, experience and more. Make a plan.

9. How will I foster my personal well-being to maintain or boost my mojo?

Mojo involves resilience, energy, inspiration and an overall sense of well being. Take time to reflect on your physical state as well as your mental and emotional well being. If you were operating at your peak, what would that look like? What needs to happen to bridge the gap from where you are today to where you want to be? Make a plan.

10. How will I foster my professional well-being to boost or maintain my career aspirations?

What new skills will you acquire or deepen? How will you foster or build your network? What new challenges will you take on? And what support might you call on to help you achieve your professional goals?

11. How can I contribute to the ‘greater good’?

In what ways will you go beyond yourself, and contribute to the greater good of your family, workplace and community?

12. What will be my theme for the coming year?

If the year ahead were to have a personal theme, what would that be? Think big: “This will be the year of ----.”

Do you have a couple of munites to spare? It only takes two munites to set up a money making website that may bring you profits time and time again. There's a one-click formula which you can use to set-up one of these sites. I've a video that shows exactly how it will work.. so take a look.
