Due to a blog post by Amy Mossoff last year listing her accomplishments month-by-month, I’ve kept track of all my major doings this year. Now that I’m done with school — and working on more projects than I can remember at any given moment — I found that really quite satisfying and motivating. Hence, I’m super-excited by this week’s topic for the OList Virtual Happy Hour:
As we approach the end of the year, I think there is real value in looking back on our individual achievements from the past year, both as a source of spiritual fuel, and as a means of checking one’s bearings in contemplation of goals to set for the new year.
And, in the spirit of Christmas gift-giving, what better way to remember the year’s achievements than to share them with others?! Which brings us to this week’s menu:
Appetizer: What were your major achievements of the past year? Which of your achievement(s) of the past year make you the most proud?
Drink Special: Did you have any achievements that had a particularly significant impact on your life? Was this expected or unexpected? How do these achievements impact your expectations and goals for the new year?
The OList Virtual Socials are weekly online chats exclusively for subscribers to my OList E-mail Lists. Both lurkers and subscribers are welcome to join the chat. (I sent the instructions for joining the chat to all the lists in a December 18th message with the subject “OList Announcements, so please look for that before you e-mail me or Earl for instructions.) They start at 6 pm PT / 7 pm MT / 8 pm CT / 9 pm ET on Tuesday evenings. Officially, they last an hour, but people often chat longer than that.
I’d love to hear what others have accomplished this year — and, of course, to brag a bit myself — so OList subscribers, please do stop in for a virtual drink and bite to eat!
