With the completion of another year and the promise of 2012 ahead, it is time for reflection of things past and things to come. The ubiquitous “Top 10” lists are staples in magazines and newspapers, noting everything from the major news events of the year to the worst dressed individuals.
Here’s an idea from Robert Pagliarini of the Chicago Tribune that can be both personally meaningful as well as a great conversation topic at a new year’s gathering: Create your own “Top 10” list for 2011. What were your biggest accomplishments? toughest challenges? funniest moments? or simply what you consider your personal major events? After you’ve reviewed 2011, turn your attention forward and imagine that you are having the same conversation as 2012 rolls to an end. What do you want to be listing as your top 10 events of 2012? After you’ve identified your 2012 list, don’t just think it; INK it! Write it down where you can use it to navigate your efforts this year and review it next December.
On a personal note, one of my top 10 accomplishments of 2011 was launching the new Get Your Head In The Game website (yea!!!!). One of my goals for 2012 is to have at least 1,000 people following Get Your Head In The Game on Facebook. If you’re reading this and and think it is of value, I’d like your help: take a moment to click the “Like” button and share this post with your friends. If you sign up to our mailing list, your name will be entered in the monthly drawing for a free gift from Get Your Head In The Game.
Thanks and Happy New Year!
