My request to you for today is to take 20 minutes (or as long as you want but let’s do at least 20 minutes) to reflect on the year that has gone by and to think about the year ahead.
You can use any tool you like to do this. I’d just recommend the following –
1. Let it be a list of questions (10-15 ideally) that you ask yourself. That will help guide your reflection a bit as the idea of sitting down and reflecting on a whole year can feel daunting
2. Write your first reflections on paper. Once you are satisfied with what you’ve put down, transfer it to a place on your computer as papers get lost easily.
3. Try to make it a yearly tradition. It is really great to see a collection of the reflections of your last few years a few years down the line.
And, if it makes it easier, please feel free to use the ALearningaDay reflection doc for the year. It is intentionally a PDF so you print it out and write on it first. If you don’t have a printer around you, just send me an email and I’ll send you the word version.
I hope it helps. Happy reflecting!
