Every year, I dedicate a few hours to thoroughly review my accomplishments for the entire year.
The purpose of this exercise is to create gratitude and reflection on everything I have achieved It's very easy to forget how far you've come and how hard you've worked.
While some years are easier than others to account for all the wins, it's crucial to acknowledge your victories and consider all that you have achieved.
This practice not only sets the tone for the upcoming year but also aids in goal setting.
The aim is not to boast or show off, but to engage in reflection, express gratitude, and gear up for the new year.
For full transparency below are all my accomplishments from 2023.
Maybe you'll find some value seeing this exercise done by someone else and it will encourage you to take on this exercise for yourself!
I can promise you it's very valuable to do and feels great once it's finished!
