Goals & Habits, Mindset & Mindfulness

Questions to Review Your Year

We still have a good two weeks left in 2018 so I’m not suggesting it’s “all over” yet! Depending on your circumstances, you still have time to complete an important project, plan for a new one, or start a healthy habit this year. However, I can’t deny that the last days of the current calendar are an excellent time for some self-reflection, so that you can be mindful and purposeful in moving forward. Here are 7 questions to review your year:
