This is always a busy time of year. Between holiday shopping, cooking, attending holiday parties and finishing up client work, there seems not to be much other time to think about anything else.  But I do think about something else. Always at this time, I review what my goals were for the year; and see what I accomplished and what I didn’t do.

Sometimes people get a little bummed about what they ‘did not’ accomplish and focus on that versus what they did accomplish during the year. It’s perfectly fine to go through the things you didn’t do over the last year but you should never dwell on it. If you really look back on the year, you probably accomplished so much that you can’t even recall them off the top of your head.

So let’s focus on what you really did accomplish this year. Get a piece of paper! Because you are going to want to write down the answers to the 10 things below.
