As we enter the beginning of a new decade, we are sure some of you will be thinking about resolutions for the year(s) ahead, Five Year Plans, Ten Year Plans... the sky's the limit! As fun as it is to plan our future adventures, setting goals can be overwhelming. So how do we choose our goals, and how can we start working towards them in 2020?
A good place to start is reflecting on the past...
So how was your 2019 - what went well? Were your goals achieved and were the expectations met? If not, why not, and are you ok with it?
Reflection is a powerful tool allowing you to know yourself better, put things into perspective and give you direction (1). Asking yourself questions like ‘what went well?’, ‘what didn’t go so well?’ and what can be learned from it, are useful ways that can help you plan for the future and provide focus.
