#70 - Year End Review

Year End Review

There is less than a week left in 2020. Many are already looking forward to future plans. Before we jump into the new year though take time to reflect. John Maxwell writes “We look back before we look ahead because reflection is the process that turns experience into insight.” Below are a few of the ways you can reflect on 2020:

  1. John Maxwell writes about looking back over his calendar. Where did you spend your time and what was time well spent?

  2. Last week, I talked about flipping through your pictures. What were the times you will cherish most? How can you foster those experiences or memories in the future?

  3. Review your financial transactions. If you have Tiller, it is easy to quickly scroll through your transactions. Where do you feel your money was well spent? What purchases need to be evaluated?

Life is too short to live aimlessly. Reflecting for even just a half-hour to an hour can pay massive dividends as you make decisions for the future.

- John Maxwell encourages us to reflect on successes as well as failures. “We have as much- if not more- to learn from our successes, if we’ll spend the time looking at them.” During your reflection time, take time to list what went well in 2020.
