Look Back First

So, it’s the last day of the year. We’re all looking forward to the new year. We’re setting goals. We’re doing plans. We’re setting budgets. We’re planning for next year of our lives. We’re excited about all the possibilities of 2012.

But, before you jump into the new year and abandon the old, take a look back. Look back and ask; did you achieve your goals? Did you accomplish what you set out to accomplish? Were you the person you wanted to be? What did you learn? How did you grow? What don’t you want to keep doing in 2012? Look back, take an account of the year then look forward.

When we combine our look back with our look forward the view is that much better.

Look back first.
