Your Year in Review, A Guide

Looking back at the end of any year can be confusing. It may seem as though 1 or 2 events engulfed the year.

Your year wasn’t made up of one or 2 events but an accumulation of actions, thoughts, feelings, happenings within your control, and happenings outside of your control. You know this but all of us feel lost at times.

Looking for a simple, thought provoking way to assess your past year?

Perhaps this guide will be of assistance.

Here is a list of 8 categories descriptive of parts of your life:

Career
Family and Friends
Significant Other/Romance
Fun and Recreation
Health
Money
Personal Growth
Physical Environment

Ask yourself 2 questions for each category.
Question 1: What was my greatest accomplishment in this area this year?
Question 2: What was the opportunity or challenge which presented itself to me this year?

Write them down.

What comes up for you?
What feelings are associated with these reminders/revelations?
What, if anything, do you want to do about this knowledge?
What do you want to pay closer attention to next year?
What do you want to create more space for in your life?
What actions will you take to exhibit, to yourself, forward movement?
What will you do to celebrate/honor your action taking?

All the resources you need rest within you.

If you are looking for an outside, objective, professional to assist you into tapping into your resources, consider hiring a coach.

Most coaches provide a complimentary session to determine if the 2 of you are the right fit for one another at this time in your life.

On my contact page, you’ll be able to sign up for a complimentary coaching session and find out about my package rate.

Inner Progress.

Happy New Year!

When You Find Something Wonderful

Yesterday, I missed a presentation. I was attending the PA Conference for Women in Philadelphia. I was on my way to this presentation when I decided to take a swing by the Coaches Corner, where I’d worked that morning. Last year, it hadn’t been very busy at the Coaches Corner where pro bono consultations were […]

About That Goal

The goal was important. Important because it was made from the deepest of intentions, based upon values and life purpose. A plan was made. Life happened. The plan got sidetracked. Sometimes, life’s big stressors arrive in clusters. When they do, dealing with what’s most important takes precedence. The goal took a backseat to pressing priorities. […]

Your Next Step

You don’t know what it is. You do know what it is. Either way, you feel immobilized. Questions you might ponder: What’s holding you back? Is it perfectionism? Is it fear, grief, sadness, or self judgement? What would you do if you could put your concerns aside? When would you prefer to take action? How […]

Owning Past Learning is One Measure of Success. Why?

This past Saturday I got way outside of my comfort zone. I signed up for a 6 hr. chair yoga instructor training class. The class was open to yoga instructors and those with health care experience, PT’s, OT’s, RN’s, who had yoga class experience. I love yoga and have benefitted physically and emotionally over the […]

Uh, Oh, Here Comes Certainty!

Have you had an experience when you were certain, absolutely certain of something only to find out you were 100% wrong? I experienced this a few weeks ago. My husband and I went to the movies to see a film based upon a book we’d read several years ago. The film’s ending was not as […]

According to the bureau, longitudinal studies have not been performed to determine how many career changes those jobs may have included. We know that today’s college graduates will have […]

The full text can be found in the September Issue of Exit Zero magazine; great reading about The […]

A 1st Step to Creative Change

We cannot feel inspired at all times. Sometimes, we feel flat even when change is looming. Always, change is looming. We may not feel inspired but most of us want to feel a sense of control. The 1st step to control and making a creative change is about knowing yourself very well. Who are you […]
