As we close 2022 and look ahead to 2023, I’m sharing 10 of my favourite self-reflection prompts to help you reflect and celebrate 2022 and plan an amazing 2023.
For me 2022 has been a fabulous year full of highs and lows. But mostly highs.
Before you figure out your goals and plans for 2023, I think it’s really important to take time to reflect on what you’ve achieved in 2022.
Otherwise it’s too easy to get caught up in always rushing forward and not celebrating your achievements and successes.
I suggest you take quiet time with pen and paper to sit and reflect and journal your thoughts. Alternatively go for a walk and ponder on these self-reflection prompts. You might not have an answer for all of these prompts but do consider each one.
1 – What are the key challenges that you tackled in 2022
2 – What are your key learnings from 2022
3 – What positive habits did you adopt in 2022
4 – What new skills or situations did you face in 2022
5 – What brought you joy in 2022
6 – What can you let go of to make space for something better
7 – From where or from who did you get support in 2022
8 – What did you stop yourself doing in 2022
9 – What are you most grateful for in 2022
10 – What are ten things you did that you’re proud of in 2022
At this time of year, you’ll find loads more inspiration for self-reflection prompts to celebrate 2022 so that you can then plan an amazing 2023.
You can use these self-reflection prompts to think about 2023 too. Imagine yourself sitting there on 31 December 2023 and reflect on what you would want your answers to be at the end of 2023.
I hope these prompts are helpful.
If doing this self-reflection activity for 2022 makes you realise that your career is not where you want it to be, and that’s the thing you most want to change in 2023, let’s talk. Sometimes a simple conversation is all you need.
