A Time to Reflect
As we come into the final weeks of 2014, it’s a great time to reflect on the past year. What are we thankful for? What have been our joys? What have been our sorrows? What have we learned? What did we do right? What can we improve on next year? Have you made relationship decisions this year that you are happy with? Have you learned to be a better communicator this year?
These are but a few of the questions we can ask ourselves as we look back on the year and look forward to a new year. This is an important process for each of us to go through. I recently spent a day with a group of people doing this very thing. When properly facilitated, the process of reviewing the past year and looking forward to the new year and beyond is a helpful way to stay focused or refocus on what is actually important to each of us. During any given year, we can fall prey to life events, daily routine, neglect or any number of other distractions that cause us to lose focus on what is truly important to us.
My biggest take-away from spending a day reviewing and planning was a re-affirmation of my business and personal relationship goals along with a refinement of some current business strategies.
It often doesn’t take much to get back on track to focus on our goals. Sometimes it is a simple conversation. Other times it is having someone to be accountable to. This is someone that will help you define what’s important and what is not. If you need a review by having a simple conversation or if you need professional coaching to help you define or refine your relationship goals consider a coaching relationship with me.
