Written by Kylie Lewis

With 2014 coming to a close, now’s the perfect time to stop for a moment and reflect on the year just passed so that you can begin the new year motivated, inspired and in control.

THE BENEFITS OF REFLECTION AND PLANNING

There are so many wonderful benefits that come with reflection. Reflection translates to learning, which means you’re able to recognise the positives and the negatives and take them on board to consistently improve. This also means you’re able to plan more efficiently and effectively, and we know planning is one of the keys to a successful business, because if you don’t know where you’re going, how can you get there? With reflection and planning comes organisation and that means more freedom to do the things you love and greater creativity and productivity.

MAKING TIME FOR YOU

Christmas is, for many, the busiest time of the year and I know how hard it can be to find the time to reflect and plan. Being the busiest time of year, it’s also a time when you’ll have hundreds of ideas flying around in your head (mine have already started!). That’s why it’s so important to capture those thoughts and ideas when they arise. If you let the moment pass, it’s likely you’ll forget them what with everything else happening.

So, to help you put pen to paper I’ve created a handy downloadable reflection and goal setting sheet for all you creative entrepreneurs. Make the space now to write them down and you’ll enter the new year with greater clarity, energy and inspiration.

Think about the year that’s just been. Consider your successes and the areas that might need a little improvement. Ask yourself, what things do you want to keep doing? What do you want to stop doing? And, what things do you want to make more time for?

Are there any things that immediately come to mind? I’d love to hear them. Share them with me below. Christmas is the perfect time to come together, share our stories and renew our strength for the new year. So, let’s join together lovely kin.

Today, she wholeheartedly embraces her love of a good chat and help brands and the people behind them create their vision, build their foundations, manage their business, embrace social media communities and take care of themselves in the process. She gets immense joy from connecting wholehearted kin together and making new friends.
