If you want to know how to reflect on 2012 and set yourself up for success in 2013, then there are some simple steps that you can follow to make this happen
Love Learning's insight:

Reflection is massively under rated as a way of learning. It's hard to find time and space to do this. Some of us may even feel uncomfortable telling our colleagues, or manager, that we're taking half an hour to reflect on something. But this is vital, it's often how and when we come up with the  insights we need to find the right way forward.


So before you set goals for this year, before you have your appraisal, take some time to reflect on last year. Here are some good prompts to get you going.

Take Goal-Setting Beyond a New Year’s Resolution to Achieve Greater Success | Illustra Consulting

Take Goal-Setting Beyond a New Year’s Resolution to Achieve Greater Success | Illustra Consulting | Love Learning | Scoop.it
Take Goal-Setting Beyond a New Year's Resolution to Achieve Greater Success
Love Learning's insight:

Some great goal setting advice in this article:

don’t just set goals because it’s traditional this time of year. Choose goals that will inspire you and motivate you and that will culminate in a greater work/life balance. 

Once you identify key areas in your life that you would like to improve, here’s a great way to structure them: 

#1 What people, resources, and new skills will you need to reach this goal? 

#2 Where and how can you meet those people and acquire those assets/aids? 

#3 If you cannot figure #2 out, then the goal is not yet realistic, so you should scale it back to one that’s feasible.

Ignore Your Performance Goals, Increase Your Performance | Love Learning | Scoop.it

Why are learning goals so important? Think about it this way: if you and your team's abilities stay the same and your performance goals continuously increase, pretty soon you won't have the ability to achieve them. Thus, to stay ahead of the curve as your performance goals increase, your ability must also increase. When you and your team members focus too much on performance goals that interfere with your attention and your devotion to achieving your learning goals, you are bound for failure: how soon depends on how much your performance goals increase, how able your team is now, and whether those new goals require new skills.
