One thing we used to do at my old job was to carry out a process called an ‘after-action review’ after each project ended. It was a great tool to see what worked, what didn’t work, and to use that data to improve for next time. As 2019 has come to a close, I thought now would be the perfect time to lay out the steps in this process for you to do a review of your results from last year.
It can be easy to brush this off because you didn’t set any concrete goals last year, or maybe you think you didn’t achieve anything, but I urge you to spend some time thinking about this because I know there are some unconscious expectations you set for yourself lying under the surface to examine. I’m showing you how to start applying this process to make goal planning in 2020 a completely new experience by tying in the thought model I teach and questions to start asking yourself.
Tune in this week to get 2020 off to a great start. You will be amazed at the difference you’ll see in yourself when you start making a plan for the goals you want to achieve and can look at how you did in 2019 without letting your inner mean girl take over.
