Time for introspection

The time after Christmas and before New Year is a perfect time to stop and reflect.

There’s a lot of downtime. Almost everybody stops working. There’s minimal pressure to work.

Looking back makes me relive the good stuff. It also makes me think about how could I better handled the bad stuff.

Having a plan helps when I’m lost. There are days when I wake up and I’m totally at a loss what to do. What I’ll do is review what I’ve written and check if it’s still what I wanted and if I’m on the right track.

Questions I ask myself to kick-start my introspection:

  • How was your year?
  • What are the highlights of your year?
  • Do you have any regrets?
    • What are you going to do to address those?
  • Are you heading to where you want to be?
  • What do you want to do next year?
