25 questions to ask

Reflecting on 2022 and looking forward to 2023

A couple of years ago my friend sent me a list of questions to ask yourself at the end of the year. I've been using them each year to help me reflect on the year gone by and help set my intentions for the year ahead.


Although it’s good to continually reflect, the end of the year is symbolically the best time to take a moment to contemplate on what happened, good and bad, throughout the year and how you hope the year ahead will shape up.


Some of the questions can be hard to answer as it's often in reflection that we realize our mistake and weaknesses but if we avoid confronting our shortcomings we miss the opportunity to grow.
