Do An End-Of-Year Review

The Morning Call (Allentown, PA), December 26, 2006

Whew!  You made it through another year.  It’s time to look back and analyze the results.  What was accomplished, and what wasn’t?
Taking stock of our lives is an ongoing process.  An annual review helps to keep us on track.  December is a good time for this as we wrap up the old year and prepare to ring in the new year with enthusiasm and a new set of goals.
For a quick inventory, ask yourself:  (1) What one thing am I most proud of accomplishing during the past year?, and (2) What one thing upsets me the most that I failed to accomplish?
As you approach 2007 and make your resolutions, remember the five basic principles of SMART goal setting:  Goals should be Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Timely.  If your goals meet these criteria, you will have more success in achieving them.
