I know from direct experience, I do not learn from experience itself nearly as much as I learn from reflecting on experience.
This year I’ll be reflecting with this:
What have I done in the past year that I feel good about?
What was difficult about this last year?
What lessons have I learned? What skills have I acquired?
Who contributed to my success?
What did I do this year that I have never done before?
What is the biggest risk I took this year?
What am I most grateful for from this past year?
What important decisions did I make?
What important intentions or goals did I have that I didn’t reach? Why?
What held me back this year?
What mistakes did I make? What did I learn from them?
How was my life consistent with what I value? What should I do about the inconsistencies?
Where did I not take responsibility?
What would be good for me to let go of and not carry into next year?
What do I wish I had done more of this year? Less of?
How am I different this year than last year?
“Every morning, when we wake up, we have twenty-four brand new hours to live. What a precious gift! We have the capacity to live in a way that these twenty-four hours will bring peace, joy and happiness to ourselves and others.” Thich Nhat Hanh.
