In a perfectionist society, gearing up for the new year usually means thinking about 'what went wrong' last year. That's not to say that we don't acknowledge 'what went right', but if you consider the amount of time, energy and focus you place on the two, hands down 'what went wrong' wins every time.
You can stop in your tracks right now and change that. Focusing on 'what went wrong' isn't as beneficial as you might think.
If you want to make the most of 'what went right' for years to come, make it a priority to find, study and deeply investigate each and every success (big and small) for everything it has.
- Why did it happen?
- What does it mean?
- Why now?
- What are the ramifications?
- What can you do to replicate it?
- How can you build on it?
Even though it feels like beating yourself up over 'what went wrong' is the right thing to do, there’s a lot more to gain from deeply studying 'what went right'. Don't let the fact that it's a pleasant process fool you into thinking that it's not good business sense.
I also wanted to thank you dear readers for following our blog and to wish you a happy new year and all the best for a great year ahead!
