5 Reflective Questions To Help You Grow In 2020

Overall 2019 has been a really successful year for the company across all PNG and Australian offices. As this year draws a close, we have looked back and asked ourselves some reflective questions that will allow us to enter 2020 in the right direction, and have another fantastic year of growth.  

Try applying these questions to your own personal year or apply it to your own business, you may find that they help diagnose what has been truly successful for you this year, and some things that you may look at changing moving into 2020.

?These questions are designed to help take a head full of information, memories and moments and put it into a logical order. This, in turn, helps it to make sense. With this clean-up of our brain, we set great foundations for a bigger, bolder and brighter year.? 

QUESTION 1- What have been my greatest successes in the last 12 months

It’s so important to really look back at the last year and acknowledge, where you’ve had great successes. They don’t have to be giant wins. They can be anything that is meaningful to you, that you are proud of, and that you feel really good about when you are thinking about them. For me, I include my successes in both my business and my personal life, I write them down, and I keep these lists so I can re-read them often (especially at times when it doesn’t feel like I?m winning).

QUESTION 2 ? What have been the biggest challenges I’ve faced in the last 12 months? 

I like to really identify what my biggest challenges have been during the year. Not to dwell on them, but to acknowledge them and specifically why I found them to be so challenging. This reflection, helps us to grow and make sense of any frustrations we may be feeling about these issues, challenges and overall irritating moments. 

QUESTION 3 ? What are the lessons I’ve learned in the last 12 months? 

Of course, with all the successes and challenges, there are lessons learned. I like to ponder on these a lot. What are the lessons I’ve learned this year? Have I been repeating the same mistakes? Or are their certain lessons that I simply don’t seem to have learned? And at the same time, what are the positives from the lessons I’ve learned during the year? Some good meaty things to think about here and I’ve never had a year that hasn’t been jam packed full of things to learn. After all, if your not growing, your dying and nowhere is that more applicable than in business. 

QUESTION 4 ? What are the things I didn’t get done in the last 12 months? 

Once again, this isn’t an exercise in beating yourself up ? it’s acknowledging that there were things I didn’t get done, and what does this mean? Why didn’t I get them done? Did it matter? Do I still want to do them? Should I let them go? Or what do I need to do, to get them done next year? 

QUESTION 5 ? What is my number one priority and focus for next year?

This is a big question, like the rest of them ? and vitally important for me. What is my number one focus going into next year? I get very clear by identifying my absolute number one focus in my business. As well as a number one focus in my personal life for the year ahead. This means choosing one thing ? one big overarching theme that forms the basis of all of my planning and strategising for the year. I’ve found that having this clear and absolute focus hugely important to help me to have a productive and successful year. 

?I?d suggest finding some quiet time in the weeks ahead. Grab a pen and paper, spend a few minutes answering these questions and see how much better you feel putting all of this information into order. Clear your brain, get some clarity and get ready for a sensational year in 2020.?
