In this episode you’ll hear:

Five questions to ask while reflecting on the past to move forward in the future.

  1. What made you super happy this past year? Plot out some of the big events in your life this past year.
  2. What has frustrated or made you not feel so good in the last year? What made me exhausted is another way to think of it.
  3. Is my business helping or hurting my relationships? Is my desire to do something actually working for me? Am I misaligned with something somewhere? We have to answer the question and dig deeply into the relationships that are meaningful for you.
  4. Am I still moving in a direction that makes me happy? Am I still moving in a direction where I want to go? Am I still moving in a direction that fulfills me?
  5. What am I doing all this for? What did I accomplish this year and what was it that I wanted to do it for? Was it worth it?
