In this episode of The Profitable Practice Podcast, I talk about the 7 questions I ask myself when reflecting on the business year that has just passed.
Your Annual Business Review Can Be As Simple As 7 Reflection Questions
I love December – for all the celebration and closure it brings, not to mention the joy of family around the holidays.
Once all the meals are eaten and we start returning our minds to work and business though, it’s a great time to take a short pause and reflect on the year that’s just passed.
Here are the 7 simple questions I ask myself and journal about before bringing my work year to a close.
It is my hope they will serve you too!
In This Episode:
[1:45] Question 1 – What are you grateful for? What wins are you celebrating? Who can you say thank you to?
[5:14] Question 2 – What did you find challenging? That you were dreading doing? But did anyway because it needed to happen?
[8:31] Question 3 – What was the most meaningful and magical moment(s) of this past year?
[10:39] Question 4 – Where did you learn the most about yourself and your business?
[12:26] Question 5 – Rate your scale of happiness in the past year on a scale of 1-10. If it’s lower than an 8, what was it that didn’t make you happy?
[13:45] Question 6 – What could you do in the next year that is going to help you stretch your comfort zone to learn and grow?
[15:20] Question 7 – What does success look like next year?
[17:35] A special invite to help you plan out a mind-blowing year for 2020.
“It’s really important for you to go back into those magical moments and reflect on the feelings and how you were feeling in that moment. And hold onto them! Because they are only going to happen once.”
— Andrea Maxim, ND & Business Coach
