Year End Review

I got a chance to meet Brad Lomenick, director of the Catalyst Conferences, in October at Catalyst. He seems like a great guy who knows how to value relationships and put on a great conference experience.

I’ve been following Brad’s blog for a while now, and appreciated his post yesterday about taking a look back over the past year.

Here’s the 7 questions he proposed you ask yourself as we approach 2010.

Year End Review Questions:

1. What are the 2-3 themes that personally defined 2009 for me?

2. What people, books, accomplishments, or special moments created highlights in 2009?

3. Give yourself a grade from 1-10 in the following areas of focus for 2009: vocationally, spiritually, family, relationally, emotionally, financially, physically, recreationally.

4. What am i working on that is BIG?

5. As I move into 2010, is a majority of my energy being spent on things that drain me or energize me?

6. How am I preparing for 10 years from now? 20 years from now?

7. What 2-3 things have I been putting off that I need to execute on before the end of the year?

I’m NOT asking you to leave your answers in the comments, but I am asking you to think about these questions.

No seriously, I really want you to. Put aside 15 minutes and go through them and write out some answers.

There’s no reason why you can’t be more organized, more disciplined, and more focused on the things that are important to you in the coming year.

Got me thinking…what type of person are you when New Year’s rolls around?

Do you like to lay out dreams and goals every year? or do you prefer to live a little more unscripted?
