Reflect on achievements, revise goals and recognise others
The party evaluation and de-brief appears to be a natural conclusion to a big event. With the occasion fresh in our mind, it's easy to quickly assess our success and make adaptations for the future. Do we do that at the end of our day? If we concede that every day is a milestone and that it is the accumulation of every days that assist us to achieve our lifetime goals then it seems that a personal 'check-in' is certainly worthwhile. Taking some time to reflect is a powerful way to recognise achievements, to set or revise goals and to acknowledge the positive contributions of others.
The 'check-in' relies on asking ourselves a couple of simple yet pertinent questions.
What did I do today to further progress my goal of becoming fitter/more mindful/happier/healthier/more organised etc?
Who contributed to my success today. How? (Remember, you are the key contributor!)
The next questions will help to formulate a simple way forward for tomorrow.
Thinking about my actions today what do I now need to do to further progress my goal tomorrow?
Who do I need to thank for their contribution to my success? (Recognise you as well as others)
