There are two different kinds of questions to ask yourself as you review your year.

#1 Layer One, Basic Questions:

  • Did you accomplish your goals? Why/Why not?
  • What was your biggest win for the year?
  • What was your biggest loss for the year?
  • What was the most unexpected thing that happened?
  • What was your biggest improvement?
  • What new skills did you learn?
  • What were your habits this year? Which were sticky?
  • On a scale of 1–10, how content are you with your life?

#2 Layer Two, Deeper Questions:

  • What made you most happy?
  • What inspired you?
  • What is your stress level and how are you dealing with it?
  • What beliefs, views, or opinions no longer serve you?
  • What do you now do that you never thought you would?
  • What are you learning in therapy?
  • Are you spiritually fulfilled?
  • Has your purpose changed?
  • What can you let go of that no longer serves you?
  • What was the hardest part of this year?
  • How am I in alignment with my goals?

Both Types of Questions Are Important

You need to ask yourself a little of both question types for your year-end review. Layer one focuses on facts while layer two should make you think and self-reflect.

Each layer serves the other.

You want a more accurate picture of what went on (facts) and how it made you feel (self-reflection).
