New Year? Bring it on!

New Year? Bring it on!

If you are like me, you will be spending some time during the holidays reflecting on the highs and lows of twenty-twelve and more importantly, planning for professional and personal growth in twenty-thirteen. I find that goal setting for a new year is an exciting way to ring in the new year, and if you are looking to make changes or improvements, setting goals is the only way to hold yourself accountable to achieving new outcomes. Here are some questions that I consider during this time of year that I thought might be helpful for you in your reflection and planning.

Reflection questions to ask yourself:

1. What was the most rewarding thing(s) I accomplished in 2012?

2. What would I like to continue building/growing/improving in 2013?

3. What did I accomplish in 2012 that I didn't think was possible?

4. What was I complimented for in 2012 that I wasn't expecting? How can I exploit/expand it?

Planning questions to ask yourself:

1. What are my top three personal and professional goals for 2013?

2. How can I improve my energy and vitality in 2013?

3. How can I find more time to pursue my passions (i.e. leave work on-time, travel less)?

4. What new opportunities or experiences will I pursue in 2013?

They say that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again while expecting a different outcome. Taking time to reflect and plan is important to ensuring clarity relative to where you are heading in life (both personally and professionally), and whether your likely destination is what you desire. Planning for the new year is one sure fire way to make sure you avoid unnecessary insanity.

Wishing you health, prosperity and (most of all) excitement in 2013!
