Hi guys! Welcome to another great opportunity to stop and reflect. I just did a quick little podcast around this topic. And it’s around reviewing. The power of REVIEW.
You know I’m going in the car, right!? We’ve got this big wind screen out the front – and then we got a little review mirror at the back. And the reason why we had this review mirror, is so we can actually keep on looking at the rear view.
In our reflection we should ask ourselves, “Am I on the right track? Is there someone coming up the side? And if I make that turn, am I gonna get knocked over?”
And so, this is where we constantly – we need to review.
Again, I’d like to go to four (4) debriefing questions or four (4) reviewing questions when we go through this process. And the questions are:
- What’s worked for you? What’s some of the wins? What’s been some of the success for you over the previous year?
- What’s been some of the setbacks? What hasn’t worked? What’s been some of the challenges over previous year?
- What are some of the key lessons? What are some of the Aha moments that you’ve experienced previous year?
- What do you need to be doing different this year?
Now, I try this question all the time. What’s the most important question out of those four? And people go, “Oh, what didn’t work?” and other goes, “Oh, what do I need to be doing differently next time?”
What Did I Learn?
The most important question is, WHAT DID I LEARN?
What was my Aha moment? What were some of the key lessons? Because we run patterns. Everything we do in life, we run patterns.
And when we can look at the good patterns that we run, and the bad patterns that we run – we can go, “you know what? I want to do more good patterns,” right? How do we amplify that?
But then we also need to see our bad patterns – what are those patterns that are holding us back? What change do we need to make, to go from bad to good?
So, the third question is – what are my key lessons, is the most powerful question.
What Do We Review?
Obviously, we go through – and I’ve got a number of area I’m going to suggest you review:
- We review health, super important.
- Your finances, your investments.
- The places that you’ve visited or the experiences that you had.
- Also look at new learning throughout the year that you’ve done and achieved.
Are there any other areas, you know?
And obviously, you have on your work front. Looking at, you know, your key lead generation strategies. Your conversion strategies. Client fulfillment strategies. Your business structure – so your legals, your account, your systems, your processes, your planning.
When we go through this, and we do this every quarter with our clients. When we go through this review process, it gets the Aha moments to start to pop. Because now, they’ve reviewed all those four key areas of what’s worked? What hasn’t worked? Key lessons? And what do I need to be doing differently?
And then, boom – when they start to plan for the next quarter, enables them to really go to another level.
So, I’ve got the full outline of that on our upcoming podcast. So jumped on to our website, jamesshort.com.au. Go to podcast. Subscribe. And I’m looking forward to share all or some of the secret sauces with you on other podcasts.
So, there we go! Monday Magic Moments, great way to get started for the week. Let’s get into your review process this week.
Looking forward to speaking with you soon.
