by | Jul 6, 2020 | 365 Days of Facebook Lives

I’m dancing everywhere now, aren’t I? Odd. Happy Sunday, people. Why have I got a poor network connection? That’s weird. Connection available. Okay. So Sunday night, Q&A. And I was asked a question this week because I think there’s a, you’re seeing it everywhere at the moment, people are talking about how they review their year or year in review. Let’s wind down our year and look at what we’re doing before we get to the next year, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera. So I was asked a beautiful question about how do I review my year. Because everybody knows I do all that goal setting, reviewing kind of stuff. Technical term, technical term for it. So I’ve gone old school analog, written notes to tell you tonight.

I didn’t have a … well, it’s interesting when I got asked this question. When I get asked some questions I can pull out, ” Oh, I’ve got a spreadsheet for that. Oh, I’ve got an exercise I do. Oh, I’ve got this, I’ve got a worksheet. I’ve got blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.” This one, I actually didn’t. I had to think about what I actually do. And it’s prompted me to go, I will create something now to actually be able to send out to people and go, “This is how I review my year.” But I looked at it and I kind of asked myself, “What do I do at the end of the year? How do I wind it up? How do I look at what I’ve achieved, what I haven’t achieved?” That kind of thing. And it came down to 10 questions I asked myself.

Pinterest - A bruise is a lesson… and each lesson makes us better - Samantha LeithAnd the first one, kind of not fair, because the first question is a big question. It’s my wheel of life exercise. And if you pop a message in the comments, asking for the wheel of life exercise, I will send it to you. Or if you subscribe on Samanthaleith.com you get access to it as well.

But I look at my wheel of life and I review my wheel and I look at all the different parts of my life. finances, Friends, everything. And go, “Okay, this is where I was at the beginning of the year. Where am I now? That’s improved. That hasn’t improved.” And I ask myself questions why it has improved or why it hasn’t improved. What I could do better. What I totally just took my eye off the ball on in some areas, et cetera. So I look at all of those things in my wheel of my life and I asked myself lots of questions. So that’s really kind of cheating because I say that’s one question, but that’s a whole kind of additional exercise.

And then I ask myself the following questions. Guess what I usually do with it. Are you ready? Bubba, bubba, ba, pop it in my journal. Trusty journal. If you want one, let me know. First thing I do is, what am I most grateful for? Big one. What am I most grateful for? For this year, what am I most grateful for? And some years that’s easy to find, other years it’s not so easy to find. Second thing, what was my biggest lesson? Because life can be a son of a you know what, and we get thrown curve balls and we have to learn from those curve balls. So what was the biggest lesson I learned in 2019? I haven’t done year and I’ll probably do it the next week or so. Yeah, probably the next week. So I’ll let you know what I come back with.

Fourth thing, what was it the most fun? Because life has to be fun. So what was the most fun experience for me in this year in review?

Next time or what scared the app-

… and that just makes me have such a big ego and people won’t like me because I think I’m up myself because I’m proud of myself. No. Bullshit. Sorry. Be proud of yourself for an achievement. So what are you most proud of for this year? Really, really, really important.

Next one. What goal or goals did you achieve? Yes. Again, pat yourself on your back. Some of them can be any teeny tiny ones and some of them can be big goals, but which ones did you actually achieve? And that’s all really good. And then you look at the flip side and go, “Oh God, what goals didn’t I achieve?” And that’s the one we don’t want to look at, but we actually need to look at that one. That’s really important for us to look at, because then when we work out what we didn’t achieve, we can ask ourself why we didn’t achieve it. Was it the right goal? Did we not put the right resources in it? Were we not concentrated on it? Was it not … So many reasons. Did we get halfway there? Was the goal too big? Lots of things. So what goals did you achieve? What goals did you miss out on? You threw the ball and it kind of went . I’ve had a few of those.

Next one, what do I want more of in my life? What has been so awesome this year that I want more of? Important. What do we want more of? You’ve all heard that musical Oliver. Please, sir. I want some more. More? Yes. Life is meant to be enjoyed. We should have more of the things we enjoy. So what is it you want more of?

Which takes me to the last question I ask myself. What do I want to get rid of? What do I want less of in my life? And it could be people, it could be circumstances, it could be jobs, it could be goals you want to get rid of because there weren’t the right goals. It could be clearing out your house. Like, what do you want less of in your life?

So here you have it. Q&A Sunday. How do I review my year? I think I will put something together to actually send out to people on Samanthaleith.com for a year in review, but they are my 10 things. I look at my wheel of life. Number one, wheel of life. Number two, what am I most grateful for? Number three, biggest lesson. Number four, most fun. Number five, what did I do for the first one, what was really scared batshit of? Six, what am I most proud of? Seven, what goal did I achieve. Eight, what goal did I not achieve. Nine, what do I want more of in life? And number 10, what do I want less of in life? And you know what? I want less bills. Yeah, I could say that. But I haven’t done my year in review. I will do it over the next few days and let you know how I go. So, happy Sunday, people. Please keep the questions coming because I love doing these Q&A Sundays. And I will see you tomorrow night. Have a good night. Bye.

Yeah, press finish.
