I shared this exercise with my mastermind groups and I wanted to share it with you, too. Try it for yourself, then use it with your mastermind group members and private clients. (You’re colleagues might appreciate it, too!)
The end of the year is sneaking up quickly, and this is often the time we begin planning for the next year.
Planning for the coming year can seem daunting, and the To Do list just bloats in size. Before you make big strategic plans for the coming year, consider this simple, eye-opening exercise to put things in perspective:
Simple exercise, huh?
Allow yourself a few days to do this exercise, keeping a blank notepad or computer document open so you can add to it as you remember items. Also, check your appointment calendar and old emails to remind yourself of projects, tasks and meetings that had a positive impact on your business and professional life.
I did this exercise for the first time last year and I could not believe the results. It completely informed my strategic plans for the following year.
When I looked at my next year’s goals, I could now see more clearly what should shift (either the goal or my internal workings), and what really was most important to me in my business.
Try it! I can’t wait to hear how it goes for you.
And share this exercise with your clients, mastermind group members, students, and colleagues so they can see eye-opening results, too.

An excellent idea! This will be a positive reinforcement to those in my groups that need a boost at end year. Some have businesses that see a drop each year in their clients. I can help reassure them plus possibly come up with a way to improve their year-end.
It sounds like this could be an excellent exercise for you to do with your groups in November or early December, so they can finish the year strong.
Great idea. Excellent for follow up from the workshop I led in November to help business owners plan strategically for the upcoming year.
I have done an informal concept of this for myself in the past. I see how it keeps my focus sharp on the blessings I have received.
And the blessings you have created, Karen! 😉
Thank you Karyn for your followup exercises/support. I will use them to celebrate all that I have accomplished and use it as a springboard for the New Year.
May your Holiday Season be safe and joyful; your New Year full of blessiings.
