Have you taken time to pause and reflect on your accomplishments in 2023? As usual, it seems like the year zoomed by in a flash, and in a few short days it will be 2024.
Busy executives often don’t take enough time to acknowledge their achievements. You need to savor these moments because once they’re gone, you’re on to the next thing and it’s harder to recall un-savored moments.
Recognizing these milestones will remind you of your progress. To get you in the mood, here are some questions to trigger your self-assessment.
+ What were some of your or your team’s exceptional client experiences? What did you do, how did it benefit them, and how can you leverage these situations?
+ What were some of the high points working with your employees? Who surprised you by stepping up, and who made the greatest professional progress?
+ What did you do for yourself that was remarkable? If an answer doesn’t immediately come to mind, it’s a clue that you need to fix this in 2024.
+ Which challenges turned into opportunities? How did you make those opportunities happen?
+ Where did you experience your greatest personal growth? How will you leverage this next year?
+ What was the most fun?
These questions provide a starting point, and hopefully you’ll take the time for this reflection. You deserve to acknowledge the good stuff, and it’s the perfect time to do so.
