As we approach the end of 2011, I am all for setting our sights on a pleasurable and prosperous 2012. I know many people are due for a positive shift and the New Year can signal a fresh start, an opportunity to shake things up and to set some goals for the future. But before you start your wish list, I encourage you to take a peek back on 2011. Here are some questions you might ask yourself when reflecting back on 2011:
1) What did I accomplish this year?
2) What am I grateful for?
3) What lessons did I learn?
4)What might I have done differently?

I like the idea of looking back at 2011 before establishing goals for the future. I’m amazed when looking back to see the changes that occured when family emergencies came flooding in and I had to quickly make adaptations to new circumstances. Have I learned lessons? Yes What am I grateful for? That God has proved himself faithful again and again. His grace has sustained me. I’ve surprised myself with my ability to change and to do it graciously.(most of the time) My character has improved. More patience, more mercy, and more determination to do and be the person God created me to be.

Not only are these solem and influntial questions to ask oneself at the end-of-a-calendar-year; but alas, as a coach and as a teacher – they should be honestly asked at the end of every season. Wish more people did.

Thanks for all you do!
