Lessons for the Year: What’s Worked for 2018

It’s another opportunity to review the week, and probably review the whole year.

What has been some of your wins and some of your lessons throughout this week? It’s a good time to just stop and reflect to say, “Hey! You have gone throughout the week.”

What are you most proud of? What have been some of the things that you’ve hanged out high and say, “Wow! That’s been a good week.”

What’s been some of the lessons that you can take away and go, “You know what? This is what I learned. This is an Aha moment.” Or “this is what I need to be doing differently next week.”

So, it’s an opportunity to really – as we come through this next little time, to sprint towards the end. And also to reflect on how the year has gone for you.

What has been some of the wins and the setbacks? Some of the lessons and what do we maybe doing differently for 2019.

I’d love to hear from you. What has been some of your wins? What are you most proud of this week? And what have been some of the lessons?

Wins for 2018

We had a great opportunity this week to present to a lot of different organizations.

We’re at the McGrath St. George during their monthly conference. We talked about their genius and we talked about their superpowers. We also talked about how to tap into their genius and how to really start to map-out 2019.

We were also at Tyler Nicholas where we talked about, obviously, how to build your teams. And also communication, which is a really important factor throughout this market where we are at the business world today.

I also had the opportunity, which is pretty cool, to be at the opening of a new sports store called Decathlon. It is a new huge sports store in Auburn. Being in the trail running ambassador, I was fortunate enough to be there.

What Have We Learned?

When I look back over this week, particularly the two presentations that I delivered with the two companies, is we went through the four review questions.

And those review questions is a great way to just to take stock and do this on a weekly, monthly, quarterly or annually process.

Let’s review the four questions once again:

  1. What’s worked for me this week?
    • What’s been some of the wins?
    • What’s been some of the things that I’m most proud of?
    • What’s really worked?
  2. What didn’t work? What’s been some of the setbacks and some of the challenges?
  3. What are some of my lessons? What are the Aha moments that I learned this week or this month, or whatever time period that you are reviewing?
  4. What do I need to be doing differently?

This is a perfect segway into 2019. When we can take and review your whole year and look at – “Okay, what are some of the things that really worked for me this year?”

What Will Be Different in 2019?

When you look at the different areas of your business, look at the different areas of your life both personally and professionally.

What are the things that didn’t work? What are the setbacks and challenges? What were the key lessons that we took away from work and also on the personal front.

And moving into 2019, how’s it going to be different? What are you going to do different? How’s it going to measure up compared to 2018?

So, it’s a great opportunity to really review. It’s an opportunity to review the year. We deep dive a little bit more in the year and we look at the different quarters. We also need to look at the different areas of your business and personally.

And we start to do the high-level planning for 2019. So you can break and you can free your mind, and really relax and restore, rejuvenate over the Christmas period.

So, there we go – Finish it Fridays, an opportunity to review the week – and the year.

An opportunity to think. What are some of your wins? What are some of your lessons throughout this week?

Looking forward to hearing from you soon. Have a wonderful holiday.
