As the curtains on 2022 almost draw to a close, most of us are (and quite rightfully so) looking for ways to get better in the year ahead. Whether that’s with our money, our career, our relationships, or anything else really, this time of year is usually prime time for goal-setting.
We often find ourselves getting caught up in that next thing we want to achieve and get better at. But do we take the time to reflect on the year gone by?
Sure, I bet we’re great at telling ourselves all the things we didn’t do so well or the things we wished we would’ve done but how often do we stop and appreciate our efforts? And just how far we’ve come.
Someone I follow on LinkedIn recently asked her followers what they’ve achieved this year. So, I commented and noted a few things I’ve done this year. It felt weird. I’m certainly not used to writing out my achievements like that!
We aren’t used to listing our wins, let alone sharing them online. And that’s fine! I feel the same way. I prefer to keep those things to myself but writing that down was a great exercise for me. It showed me how far how I’ve actually come.
As 2022 comes to an end, write down your accomplishments. The small wins, the big wins and all that lies in between.
Let’s end the year on a high note. Be proud of how far you’ve come.
Use that motivation and bring it into 2023!
Happy (almost) New Year my dear readers!
It’s been so great writing to you all. Excited for what the next year has in-store for us.
Hopefully way less economic drama but you really can’t count on anything!
