I started a process about 5 years ago of completing a "Win List" to document the accomplishments -- big and small.
It also help kickstart thinking about next year's goals.
Here are some questions I use to help remember my wins:
- What wins or progress did you achieve in your career?
- Did you identify a new hobby to focus on?
- Did you create any new publications or collections?
- Did you delegate any tasks to become more productive? (This could include adding new staff and/or assistants, such as a housekeeper, executive assistant, gardener, errand runner, babysitter, or child care person. It also might include putting new systems into place to increase your efficiency.)
- Did you buy, use or learn to use any new technology?
- Did you spend more time in nature?
- Did you develop any new supportive habits? (such as meditation, exercise, sleep, or gratitude)
- Did you overcome any non-supportive habits? (i.e., alcohol, caffeine, sugar, gambling, etc)
- How did you grow in leadership?
- Did you deliver any presentations or speeches or develop new programs?
- Did you develop any new abilities, skills or competencies?
- What success did you achieve in the areas of financial income, investments or debt reduction?
- Did you create any new relationships or deepen existing relationships?
- Did you make any progress in self-development?
- Did you attend any positive events (e.g., seminars, lectures, concerts, theater, or sports)?
- Did you experience any positive events with your family?
- Were there any positive events in relation to your house or apartment?
- Did you take any trips or vacations?
- Were there any positive additions to your life?
- Were there any positive events in your community?
- How about any positive events in your spiritual life (e.g., church meditation, retreats, rituals)?
- Did you experience any positive events in regards to letting go (e.g., bad habits, negative people, or clutter)?
- Did you have any wins in health and fitness (e.g., weight, exercise, cholesterol, sports, or endurance)?
