5 Reflections from my Decade Review

What I learned from Reflecting on the last Decade of my Life

Every year during the last week of December, I do a year-end review. You can learn more about my process for that here. In May, I turned 30 and decided to do a decade review. I reviewed all of my year-end reviews from the last decade of my life. It was a great experience. In fact, I will be recording a two-part podcast of the top lessons I learned in my twenties that will be published in August and September of this year. Today, I simply want to share with you a few things I learned from the actual practice of reviewing a decade of my life. Here we go:


1.) I’m Extremely Glad that I Journal – I started journaling in 2004. You can learn how I journal here. It’s been said that a journal is an intimate record of the journey the Lord and I are traveling on. I love that at any point in time I can pick up a journal from any year and start to read about what my life was like that year, the memories I made, what I was learning, and what I was doing. If you don’t journal, I want to encourage you to start today.


Our next Learning to Lead breakfast is on Saturday, August 22nd. Our speaker is Lisa Slayton, President of the Pittsburgh Leadership Foundation. She will be sharing what she believes to be the most important lesson for next generation leaders. This breakfast is free and open to the public.
