Here are some questions I am reflecting on. I hope they will be helpful for your reflections as you close out 2023 and get ready for a new year:

  • What accomplishments are you most proud of this year?
  • What smaller steps did you take in 2023 that are leading you towards a big goal?
  • Who helped you the most this year? What did they do that made a positive difference in your life?
  • Who did you help this year? What did you do to enrich the life of another?
  • What was a goal or dream you didn’t complete this year? Will it stay on your list in 2024? (It’s okay if you didn’t accomplish everything you meant to. Celebrate that you are closer or that you’ve discovered it wasn’t meant for you.)
  • What mistakes did you make and what did you learn from them? (This is not an opportunity to beat yourself up but to acknowledge and move forward.)
  • What did you discover in 2023 that you want to keep? A person? A bit of knowledge? A habit? A hack? A feeling? An attitude? A place? An experience?
  • How will you celebrate your progress?
