Set better goals with effective reflection


You made it to 2020!  You're relaxed, rejuvenated and ready to crack on with the new year.  but before you race ahead, look back for moment to learn from the year that was, in order to set more meaningful goals.

With that fresh perspective, ask yourself:

  1. What thing are you most proud of from the previous year?
  2. What was the worst thing or biggest fail of the year?
  3. What is the most valuable thing you learned about yourself?
  4. Who were the most influential and supportive people for you?
  5. What three things from the year are you most grateful for?
  6. What do you wish you'd done more of last year?
  7. What do you wish you'd done less of last year?
  8. On a scale of 1-10, how do you rate your happiness for the year?
  9. What three words summarise the year?
  10. What skills could you better utilise this year?
  11. What areas should you stretch this year?
  12. What will success look like to you this year?

These are great questions to ask yourself, your team members and even your children.

    - Nelly Evans,Powdercoat Select
  • "Nelly (my wife) told me she had signed up for some business training and I told her it was a waste of time and money. I wasn't interested in doing it at all because both our businesses are firing on all cylinders, but to show her support, I went along to the first workshop and I was impressed. Nelly and I have been doing a lot of talking, but we realised that we never had the right mindset to take action. - Read more
