Evaluate 2011

“Experience isn’t the best teacher, evaluated experience is.” –John Maxwell

Life is like toilet paper, the closer to the end you get, the faster it goes! I can’t believe another year has come and gone! I hope 2011 was a great year for you. I would really encourage you to take these last two weeks in 2011 and evaluate your year.

Three years ago I wrote several posts that explain how I evaluate my year, you can read them by clicking on the following links:

I would encourage you to ask you the following questions:

  • How was your 2011?
  • Did you have goals that you wanted to accomplish this year?
  • Did you accomplish them?
  • If not, why?
  • What could have you done better in 2011?
  • What were the highlights of the year? What were the low-lights? 
  • What were the biggest lessons you learned? 
  • Who helped change your life this year through their influence?
  • What did God teach you?
  • Who did you meet this year that you’re glad you met with? 
  • What do you need to repent about?
  • Who do you need to forgive?
  • Who do you need to call or meet with and thank? 
  • Where did you waste the most time?
  • Where was your time well spent?

 These are just a few examples of questions that I ask myself. My year-end review is my year-end review. I would encourage you to find a system that works for you, but don’t go year after year without really evaluating how you spent them.

I’d love to hear from you (leave a comment below):
