Reflection is the most powerful part of the Plan-Do-Reflect model, and it is the least used tool for making powerful progress. Looking back is a powerful way to mirror a desired future. I was thrilled to receive and share these powerful reflective questions adapted from my friends at CoachingTools. These questions provide a creative way to look back on your year and prepare for the future. Challenge yourself to answer at least 2 of these questions. When you meet a friend this week, ask them one of these questions to start a different conversation than about the weather.
