What’s Ahead in 2015

December 10, 2014

Looking Back on 2014. What’s Ahead in 2015?

By: John Cook, Chief Client Officer

I am a keeper of journals and notebooks to, hopefully, keep all of my workflow, schedule, notes and deadlines together. Around this time each year, I take time to review those notebooks, as I begin to plan for the new year. It is a good way to celebrate the successes and learn from the mistakes.

As you plan, ask yourself these questions. Take an inventory, be honest, and begin the new year with a new perspective.

  • What was the greatest lesson I learned in 2014?
  • What was my greatest success in 2014? What made it successful? How will this help me in 2015?
  • What other successes did I experience in 2014? What did I do right?
  • What would I consider a failure in 2014? Why was it a failure?
  • What obstacles did I face in 2014? How will I eliminate those obstacles in 2015?
  • Where do I need to build new relationships in 2015?
  • What new strategy will I implement in 2015?
  • What professional or personal goal do I need to reactivate?
  • What will my “One Thing” in 2015? Instead of a list of resolutions, name one thing that will put me over the top?
  • Who will be my mentor or role model in 2015?

Don’t be afraid to develop new ways of thinking. There is greatness in you to come forth.

Wishing you a holiday season filled with hope, joy, and miracles!!
