At the end of every month, I conduct a review. I look at many areas of my life, like finances, relationships, self-care, and more. While I’m thinking about these categories, I review what worked well and what didn’t go so well.
In addition, I ask myself a lot of questions, like:
– What did I learn during the month?
– Where did I grow and what can I focus on next month?
– Where did I focus most of my energy?
On the surface the review process seems cumbersome. However, I’ve found that these monthly reviews keep me on track and motivated to complete my goals. Everything requires energy and I want to be sure I’m putting energy toward priorities that matter, like family, doing good work, and giving back.
