Two Minute Drill: Looking Back to Leap Forward
What’s up Kaizenovators, Happy Tuesday Two Minute Drill. Today’s topic of conversation is reflection. This is the time of year, it’s already December, believe it or not. This is the time of the year when we need to start thinking about what’s going to happen in 2024 to make it even better.
The thing that I want you to do right now is to pull out a sheet of paper or pull out your computer and ask yourself a couple of questions.
The key is to be honest in your answers.
- Question number one: What went great in 2023?
- Question number two: What didn’t go as well as you would have liked?
- Question number three: What did you learn from things not going as well as you would have liked?
- Question number four: What specifically will you do differently to get a better result in 2024?
Now, this is not about setting SMART goals or the five HOWs, the five times that you ask the question “How” when you’re setting up a goal. We’ll talk about that in a future TMD.
This is really about mindset and behavior. How will you act differently? How will you think differently in order to achieve a better result in 2024?
I did this for one of our companies, and my grades were some good, and some not so good, but going through this exercise, I was able to learn and identify where I could do better.
So guys, ask the questions: What went great? What didn’t go as expected? What did you learn and what will you do differently moving forward to achieve an even better result in 2024?
Let’s make that happen this week, you guys!
Have a great week, and I’ll talk to you all next week.
