Ask yourself these five questions to gain perspective on the coming year

Taking even a few minutes to review the past year will do a lot to help you be more clear about what's needed for next year.
With the end of 2011 just around the corner, many individuals are saying, Good Riddance! However, some, perhaps many more than you'd think, will look back on this year as one in which things worked out really well. Here are five questions that I ask clients to consider at this time of the year with the goal of helping them to gain perspective as they look forward to the next year. Take a moment to noodle about your own situation by completing these polls:

I hope you are satisfied with how you did in 2011.  But if you're not, then I encourage you to renew your focus and dedicate more time to taking control over it.  Each of us has three key life elements: personal, career and financial. This, more than ever, is the time to make the most out of each one of them.

Here's to your future!

If you're just going to re-run an article, the least you could do would be to update to the current year. Find/Replace: 2010 Replace with: 2011 Find/Replace: 2009 Replace with: 2010 It that too much to ask?

This one was really great, helpful, and got me thinking about all the changes i want to see in my self for 2012. 2011 was not so bad then not so good, 60% good and 40% bad. "BE THE CHANGE THAT YOU WANT TO SEE IN THE WORLD"

In Maryland the SMB market is not very robust since thiyv is a very business unfriendly state. Maybe the the first Q 2012 will be better but that is a big if. G.Adams adams.itconsulting

I made a big change in I decided to go to work for myself, bought my own small business, instead of working for someone else. I may not get the big paycheck, but at the end of the week, I feel much more satisfied knowing that all the extras I do for my customers helps my business, not some over- paid CEO somewhere to get an even bigger bonus.
