Year End Questions – Part 2 of 4

As mentioned yesterday, I I become reflective this time of year and like to set aside some time to look back over the previous year. I have a list of about 20 questions I ask myself this time of year and here’s the second one:

Year End Question #2
What was my worst day at work in 2008?

This question isn’t designed to be as much negative as it is reflective (think of it as feed-forward).  Contrary to the popular saying, experience is not the best teacher; evaluated experience is the best teacher.  And the truth is, we often learn more from the pain than the pleasure.

And, like question #1, you can change the ‘at work’ part to ‘at home’ or ‘in my marriage’ or ‘as a father’ or to any other domain of your life.  Not a fun question but definitely worth the reflection time, especially if you want to make 2009 better than 2008.

See you tomorrow for question #3.


P.S. While this post is designed to help you reflect on the previous year, be sure you take time to plan next year too. So, if you are looking for something that will help you make 2009 greater than 2008, check out my resource Developing A One Year Personal Growth Plan by clicking here.
