Another year has passed.
On the last morning of 2018, I decided it was the perfect time to reflect on the year and think about the year ahead.
📝 Pen and paper is best of course and so I opened my journal and wrote down 3 simple questions on 3 separate pages.
1.What went well this year?
This page was full of ticks ✓ instead of the usual bullet points for example:
✓ personal growth – much less emotional, rarely loss my temper.
✓ studies – stayed ahead of assessment datelines and prepared for exams way ahead of time
✓ stayed very consistent with staying active, exercise and outdoor activity
2. What could have been better?
Bullet points on this page was either ↑ or ↓ for example:
↑ do more reading
↑ more journaling and reflecting
↓ less time on social media scrolling”
3. How can I make 2019 better than 2018?
Bullet points on this page were check boxes to be ticked ☐ for example:
☐ more inner life – prayer, meditation, reflection, nature walks, contemplation
☐ spend at least 30 mins a day reading
☐ blog more!
I hope these 3 simple questions may also guide you in your 2018 reflection and preparations for the new year.
