I bet you saw hundreds of memes over the years poking fun at failed New Year resolutions. I find reflections for New Year to be a more helpful practice. You are more likely to create change when your goals are small, measurable, and realistic. Less pressure and more understanding of yourself and your patterns will help you come up with these kinds of achievable goals.
Here are my 10 questions to reflect on for New Year. I recommend answering them both for your Personal and Professional life.
10 Self Reflections for the New Year
- What would you like to create or experience more of in the New Year? Imagine and describe what it would feel like in your body. How will you know when you’ve got what you wanted?
- If you could change one thing about your life, what would it be? What is holding you back from taking action or seeking support in this case?
- What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?
- What would you want if you knew you wouldn’t be judged (especially by yourself)?
- What people, places, and activities help you feel happy and energized? How can you find more opportunities to give yourself those?
- What new things might you want to learn or try this year?
- What people, places, and activities drain you? What would it take to limit your exposure to those?
- Who are the people in your life you need to set better boundaries with? If you tend to overcommit yourself, how can you hold yourself accountable not to?
- What frustrating pattern of yours do you want to become more aware of this year?
- How can you better acknowledge yourself for your gifts and strengths? How can you love yourself better?
