WOW 2020; what a year. 

It may have worked out for you the way you wanted or it may not have. 

Irrespective, 2020 has given us all what we need.  In business, I firmly believe we have either earnings or learnings.  2020 may have been a year of earnings, or it may have been a year of learnings.  It may have been a great mixture of both.    

For me, the end of a year and the start of another is the perfect opportunity to reflect and plan. 

Last year, I shared our process for our end of financial year plan ( Rob and I follow this process at the end of every financial year and calendar year.  We will do it again this year so we enter 2021 with the hindsight of 2020 vision.

In this blog I’ll share with you a reflection process I have been using throughout the entire year.

The benefit of doing this is it’s enabling me to use our in-depth reflection and planning process so much more easily. 

The Instructions

In January, start the year with an empty jar.

Each week add a note with the best thing which happened to you that week.

On New Year’s Eve 2021 empty the jar and read about the amazing year you had.

I’ve just done that for my 2020 year.  Here’s the things I’ve learned:

  1. Some of things that I had written down were the result of great learnings I had throughout the year (especially through COVID)
  2. Most of the things I had written down reinforced to me I am living in my highest priorities. I’d written down great things happening in my business, great family times, great shifts in physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health
  3. In 2020 I have personally achieved some great things
  4. In 2020 our business achieved some great things
  5. In 2020 I’ve had some challenges through which I’ve learned a lot about myself.  I have been given the opportunity to chip away at the extra glue and paint I’ve taken on during my lifetime which is preventing the masterpiece I am to shine
  6. In 2020 our business has experienced some huge challenges.  It’s enabled Rob and I to make some big changes and continuously improve everything we do.  It’s given us insights we can share with our clients on their journey too.
  7. My life is surrounded with some amazing people who are on the journey with me.  They have supported me, they have challenged me and I’m eternally grateful to them.

2020 year been an amazing year!  My learnings have indeed been my earnings. 

My reflection is enabling me to enter 2021 to make it even better, with the hindsight of my 2020 vision. 

On behalf of the team at Kaibizzen, I wish for you an amazing 2021.  I trust it is your best ever.
