Do you regularly put time aside to check in with how you’re going? We spend so much time focusing on our personal health and that of our clients, but what about the wellbeing of your business?
End of the financial year check in
The end of the calendar or financial year is a good time to take some time to reflect on how you’ve gone in business (and life), let go of what’s no longer working and make plans going forward.
There are no wrong answers. Be conscious of your reactions. Do some questions make you feel uncomfortable? Are you judging yourself? Do you think you “should” have done better? Is it challenging to celebrate your achievements? If so, include this in your answer.
Looking back over the past 12 months:
- What went amazingly well in your business in the past year?
- What are you most proud of?
- What were your biggest lessons? (Through experience/ongoing education/by chance)
- What were your biggest life and business/clinical challenges?
- How did you deal with them?
- How do you feel about these challenges now?
- If you haven’t been able to move through these challenges – what help do you need to so?
- How and when will you do this?
- What are your business and clinical/skill goals for the next 12 months?
- How do you want to feel at the moment about your business?
- How do you want to feel?
- What resources/support do you need to put this into actions?
- What do you commit to doing this week?
Review your responses, make a plan and set a reminder for the times you’re following through with your actions.
This mini review is a taste of an extended annual review (looking at successes, challenges, income, areas of growth and more). If you’re interested in a comprehensive review with goal setting and accountability, book a mentoring session.
