Taking Stock Journal Exercise
Feel free to use this exercise anytime during the year. I find it especially helpful near end of year or project.
So I wanted to share with you the questions I used as journal prompts to do this reflective process. I did mine a couple days ago after my morning yoga.
Where have I put my attention and focus in 2018?
Did you focus on health or relationships? Did you focus on healing or resolving old patterns? Did you focus on adopting new habits? Travel, work, personal or professional relationships etc.
How have I grown in those areas (or area) based on where I am right now? [Do your best to capture all ways you have grown. Be as specific as you can]
Where or how did I get stuck or simply what didn’t work? [Try to again look at the big picture versus just the details and specifics. Saying what didn’t work isn’t about chastising yourself or feeling like a failure. It is about identifying for you what tried or what you were going to try but didn’t and perhaps why you got stuck in the first place.]
Are these still areas I want to be focused on? If yes, what actions could I take today to have further growth by the end of the year and beyond? If no, what could you be focused on now?
As an additional note, like you when I decide to focus on something it is in alignment with who I am and what I am up to. We change though. Right? So what was once in alignment could very potentially be out of alignment. Give yourself permission to consider switching energy and focus.
What insights did you have? I totally would love to hear. Hit reply and share if you would like.
