Real Entrepreneurs. Real Questions. Real Answers.
The end of the year is my planning period. Do you have any suggestions to help me assess and track my progress for the upcoming year?
For an honest assessment of where you succeeded this past year, places you missed, and what you would like to do differently in the coming year, I offer an adapted version of my Weekly Review taken from the Inspired Business Toolkit.
I recommend you find a quiet corner, a smoking cup of coffee, and ask yourself these tough questions. I also encourage you to be completely authentic in your answers!
What action(s) did I take during this past year?
What were my wins or successes?
What were my challenges?
How did I overcome those challenges and when did they stop me in my path?
What have I learned about myself this past year?
What is my focus for the upcoming year?
What do I most want to accomplish next year?
What progress have I made toward my goals? What has changed?
What three words would I use to describe last year?
What three words do I want to describe the coming year?
