Another year is almost over. In this article, executive and leadership coach John M McKee provides key questions to ask yourself and to rate your overall success.
The end of December or early January is the ideal point to sit back and reflect on your situation. Was it as good as it could have been? Did you look after yourself? Were there things you should have done better? Here are a few questions to help you noodle about the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly aspects of 2009. See how you rate and compare yourself with other readers of the TechRepublic IT Leadership blog.
Reflecting back on 2009 in general, consider each of your 3 basic life aspects and give yourself an honest self-appraisal about how you think the year worked out for you:
If you are happy with your scores - Congratulations! Allow me to give you a pat on the back for a life well lived - nice stuff!
If not, now's the time to start planning for a more-successful future. You need to take charge of your life. If you don't, chances are 2010 is going to look a lot like this one.
Here's to a great and successful New Year!
