You maybe thought of doing this 4 weeks ago, and never quite got around to it. But why not do it now, there is no one perfect time, just get on and do it on a miserable cold day like today!

Each year I like to review the year gone and make plans for what I want to do in the coming year. Most people don’t do this but it is a very helpful discipline to get into. I started back in 2010 and find it helpful to see just how much I have achieved, especially the overcome obstacles rather than to concentrate on all the things yet to do. Perhaps you will find it helpful to do similar?
Here’s an approach to take. Consider different areas of your life and make a note of what you achieved, then from this plan for what you want to do this year. So, looking at work, fitness, relationships etc. ask yourself:
My Career
What I have achieved?
What I’m most proud of
What obstacles have I overcome?
My plans for 2017 with success criteria – how will I be able to measure my success?

My Health and Fitness
What I have achieved?
What I’m most proud of
What obstacles have I overcome?
My plans for 2017 with success criteria – how will I be able to measure my success?

My Relationships
What I have achieved?
What I’m most proud of
What obstacles have I overcome?
My plans for 2017 with success criteria – how will I be able to measure my success?

 My Wider life goals
What I have achieved?
What I’m most proud of
What obstacles have I overcome?
My plans for 2017 with success criteria – how will I be able to measure my success?

My Financial goals
What I have achieved?
What I’m most proud of
What obstacles have I overcome?
My plans for 2017 with success criteria – how will I be able to measure my success?

To make it easy, I’ve created a document Reflection-on-2016 for you to print and use, so do download and happy for you to share with others.
