One of the wisest end-of-the-year practices that has always served me well is to make a list of my successes from that year before creating my goals or resolutions for the new year. We rarely take the time to celebrate and savor all we’ve accomplished before moving on to the next thing on our eternal “to do” list.
Right now, I encourage you to think of three 2011 successes. Make it a mix of professional and personal triumphs that you are most proud of.
Write them down and give thanks. Share them with someone and invite them to do the same. This simple, conscious practice will not only make you feel good but it will also give you the confidence and focus you need to achieve your 2012 goals.
My top three 2011 successes are:
- Worked with ideal, appreciative organizations like Kimberly-Clark, IBM, Women in Technology Internatioinal, Keller Williams Realty and WellStar Health System.
- Launched my new Working with Wisdom website, a true reflection of who I am and the empowering message I share.
- Loved every minute of a 12-day Mediterranean cruise with my Mom, where we visited a dozen destinations including Barcelona, Monte Carlo, Florence, Rome and Venice.
What’s on your success list?
