End of Year Reflections & Happy New Year!

Posted Dec 27 2011 11:51am

I love this time of year. Holiday parties, time with family, fires in the fireplace and a creamy hot chocolate bring lots of warm feelings during this otherwise chilly month. I also love that as the year comes to a close, I have a chance to reflect on all that has happened.

Happy New Year

Have you thought about what 2011 has meant for you?

As I look back on my plans for 2011 I learned that:

  • Plans need timelines. This year I’ll make plans and put timelines next to them. Without timelines plans are sometimes forgotten.
  • Things change. Some of my plans for 2011 changed and took on a new direction – all for the better.
  • Don’t forget the baby steps. While I didn’t fully accomplish all of my plans, I did take steps in the right direction. Forward motion counts.
  • Celebrate your success (no matter how large or small). As a self-employed professional I’m the only one who can say “great job!” It’s easy to forget to do that. As the year ends I will acknowledge the steps I did take and how those steps will set the stage for 2012.

Below are a few of the questions I think about as I look back over the year. (and my answers for 2011):

My yoga practice slipped a bit. Yoga helps me feel grounded and focused. I want to incorporate more yoga into my daily routine in 2012.

As I look back on my plans for 2011 , I accomplished some, others fell off the list entirely and others I will carry over into 2012.

I will acknowledge the steps I did take to make some of my plans a reality.

I took steps to make a professional dream ( Healthy South Shore , launching in January) a reality.

My personal life is pretty rich – I feel good personally. This year I will focus on feeling good professionally and growing Healthy South Shore.

As 2011 ends, consider reflecting for just a moment on the year. Remember to celebrate your successes, celebrate your family and friends and most importantly, celebrate YOU!

Wishing you a very happy holiday and an abundant new year!

How was 2011 for you? What did you accomplish? What can you celebrate?
