A Year in Review

by Karyn L Beach

The week between Christmas and New Year’s is filled with The Year in Review stories. What were the biggest songs and movies and TV shows of the year? Who had the best year? Who had the worst? What stories got the most attention?

When I do my goal setting workshops, I always start by having people do their own personal Year in Review. What happened this past year that was good? Maybe you found a great job or fell in love. You could have stopped smoking. Maybe you made some significant revelations about your life. Maybe you welcomed some wonderful new people into your life. Maybe you removed some not-so-wonderful people from your life. Or maybe you just found a hairstyle you loved. Big or small, there were a number of great things that happened this year and now it’s a good time to acknowledge what worked, what went right.

In my workshops, I spend twice as long on what went right as I do on what went wrong or what didn’t go as expected or planned. We tend to overlook the good and focus on the bad.

The bad things – the disappointments, the failures, the losses -seem to always be right in front of us, in the forefront of our minds and on the tips of our tongues. The good – the successes, small victories, the happy moments – aren’t on the surface. We have to dig for them, sometimes very deeply.

As we prepare to go into 2011, take a little time to commend yourself for the things you have accomplished this year.

Celebrate you.
