We’re at the end of the year – so how was it for you?
What have been the highlights and achievements of your year?
If you were to give this year a mark out of ten, how would you rate your year?
Would it be a derisory 1, measly 2 or a paltry 3 - a poor 4, average 5 or respectable 6 - a good 7, a great 8 or maybe even a fabulous 9 or totally brilliant 10?
What is it about the end of the year that makes it a good time to take stock?
We have a culture of looking back around this time of year – with all sorts of TV programs looking back at the events of the year, the trends, the politics, what happened in the media.
But the end of a year also provides a convenient cut-off point for you on an individual level to reflect on what’s happened - and either recognise and celebrate it or put it behind you and move on.
And to go with this there’s the annual goals fest of New Year resolutions.
The fact is the idea of new beginnings is a conceptual device – a framework to hang a review of the past and preview of the future on.
Recognising that one year is ending and a new one beginning makes for a common point of reference.
But whenever you’re reading this, you can do exactly the same. Because a year is just a unit of time to measure things by – and you can use any unit of time at any time of the year to take a step back and review what you’ve achieved and not achieved and if you’ve met your goals or fulfilled your desires for the year.
We’ve been reviewing the past year past year ourselves and we’ve recorded it for you in this week’s podcast - Come behind the scenes with us in Episode 22 ‘How would you rate your year’ to find out about our year.
And then rate your own and let us know your score and some of your highlights and achievements.
