Another year is almost over and we’re about to enter a whole new decade – woohoo!
Before we turn the page and start a new chapter into a new year and new DECADE, I like to create an annual review.
An annual review can help you to look at your actions and results over the past 12 months and ask, “Are my habits and choices helping me live the life I want to live?”
It’s powerful to reflect on the past year to learn from the lessons and challenges before looking ahead.
I love spending time reflecting on the year that’s been. It’s such a fun and enjoyable process!
My yearly review answers these three questions:
- What went well and what did I achieve?
- What didn’t go so well?
- What did I learn?
So here goes!

What didn’t go so well:
The year started well in quarter 1…
…but then an exercise decline started…
It took a back seat – I didn’t prioritise my strength and fitness like I normally would. I was so focused on business. My usual 6 days of exercise a week became 3 or 4 days most weeks and some weeks 1 or 2.
For the first time in 25 years of having a gym membership, I got an email from the gym asking if everything was ok. I hadn’t been for 2 weeks. It was quite a shock and wake-up call!
In 2020, I’m focusing the full first quarter on getting my exercise routine back, no excuses.
* I didn’t achieve my goal of visiting a new place each month
* I didn’t take many full days off business
No failure, only learning.
In 2020, I’m going to spend longer on my quarterly holidays reviewing and making a better plan for the coming quarter.
What I learned:
Planning is non-negotiable – It’s been a huge year of growth for me but at times it was at the expense of mental rest and recovery. I haven’t allowed enough breathing room and margin between projects. I’ve learned that I need to rest my brain more to allow for more creativity and emotional wellbeing. I also need to create more white space in my calendar.
The importance of outsourcing – I finally hired a team member 10 hours a week to handle some tasks that I’d been putting off delegating. Building a team of people who believe in the mission is something I want to become better.
The importance of taking fast action – With the number of things I produced this year, I was again required to adopt the philosophy ‘make a mess, clean it up later’, which I absolutely did.
I acted fast, I kept showing up consistently and I didn’t have time for perfectionism.
Overall, I’m really happy with the progress I made in 2019. I grew a lot and produced a lot and my capacity has increased dramatically.
2019 has been amazing!
How did you learn and grow in 2019?
I highly recommend the activity of writing a review. It’s really insightful and enjoyable. Feel free to use this annual review as a guideline to write your own.
I’d love to read yours!
