Learning from 2022 Before Launching Into 2023
It's the last week of the year! It's a perfect time for planning and setting goals and resolutions, but before you do that, I encourage you to take time to reflect on the last 52 weeks.
Don't miss out on the learning opportunities from the last year by diving into the newness and freshness of the new year without reflecting on what happened over the last 12 months. I know it's tempting (it's tempting to me, too!), but there is such rich learning that can come from taking a moment to pause and reflect on what has come before, before diving into what will be.
So, spend a bit of time this week reflecting on the last year:
- What went well?
- What didn't go as you hoped?
- What experiences would you want to have again? How can you make sure they happen again (if possible)?
- What experiences would you never want to have again? How can you prevent them (if possible)?
- What lessons are you taking from 2022 into 2023 and beyond? What did you learn about yourself? What did you learn about your work? What did you learn about the world around you?
See you soon, and enjoy these beautiful final days of the year. You've had quite a year, and you're going to do great things in the coming year. Get ready!
