2012 is only days away. While I have a list of goals I’m still working on (and probably always will), I also find it easy these days to reflect on all that has been achieved in the past 12 months. This is not necessarily because I have achieved more in 2011 than other years. The ability to reflect on the past and be able to notice and enjoy all that has been achieved, without being distracted by all that hasn’t, is a skill that often needs to be learned and practiced. Practice, I did. And now, reflect, I can.
Right now, I reflect as I write because one goal I had was to build a new website and write the first blog post before the end of 2012. The last few months have been very busy with coaching and other work, including a lot of travel. Thank goodness for my wonderful web designer who could complete the website while I focused on what I’m good at. This first post however, is all me. During this downtime, post-Christmas, I smile as I write this; excited about what it is the start of. I am really excited about 2012 and I’m looking forward to sharing it!
If you’re reading this, WELCOME. I say this especially to all those who pre-subscribed and have been waiting patiently. Your enthusiasm for more of what I have to offer was inspiring and motivating.
I am looking forward to sharing 2012 with you!
In the meantime – reflect. YOU HAVE ACHIEVED. Most likely, more than you think you did. And even times when you might have chickened-out or didn’t reach your intended target, you learned many things. Above all, you learned about yourself, including your limits, perceived and real, and the more you reflect, the more you will know the very important difference between these two. So reflect…
If you would like some thought provoking questions as you reflect, these are my suggestions:
- In 2012, what goal that I believe is important to me would I pursue if I had no fear?
- What have I learned are the most important things in life?
- What were my most valuable lessons in 2011? How will I make the most of these lessons in 2012?
- What goal of mine, if I were to achieve it in the next 7 days, would have the biggest positive impact on my life?
- What are my values and where/when in 2011 did I live congruently with them?
- What gifts am I going to give to myself in 2012?
If you want more in terms of planning for next year, my eBook Get Your Year into Gear has been revised. The second edition is available now and it is my free gift to you.
If you have any topics you would like me to cover in 2012, get in contact and let me know.
Finally, have a wonderful and celebratory end to the year!
See you in the New Year!
