30 Questions to Review the Year!

Over the next few weeks you’re going to get an opportunity to meet my father, Luciano Del Monte. Perhaps, the most influential person in my life.  He’s going to share some things he had my brothers and I do around the “Del Monte household” while growing up. Tonight on Live Large TV he teaches his process on reviewing the year. How to learn from our year, celebrate our year, and improve on our next year.

In addition to the next few weeks of Live Large TV, he wanted to share these thoughts to stimulate your thinking as you review your 2011 year.   Steps to review this Christmas!

Career – how have you progressed in the last twelve months?  Are you in the right job for you?  What do you want to have achieved by next Christmas? (For me I want to publish a NYT best seller) 

 

Health have you maintained a sensible health and fitness regime this year?  Is your diet and exercise regime what you want it to be?  What would you like it to be next year?  NB.  Are your goals truly yours, or imposed by someone else/society? 

 

Reading/study – what have you done to develop intellectually this year?  Is there anything you would like to learn next year? (For me, I’m going to Charles Poliquin’s 5-Day Hypertrophy Camp in January)  A new language or skill?  A new qualification or hobby?

 

Inspiration – is there something you’ve always wanted to do that you achieved this year? (For me it was getting my Pro Card).  What could you plan for next year?  It can be big or small, but ticking off a lifetime ambition can be hugely inspirational.

 

Stuff/clutter – have you accumulated or cleared clutter in your life this year?  Do you have less or more room to move in the house?  Can you get in the garage?  Can you set goals to clear a room each month next year?

 

Time – are you happy with the way you spent the half a million minutes you had this year? (For me, I spent too much time working, not enough time reading)  How will you spend them differently next year?  What are your priorities for your time next year?  

 

Money – has your net worth increased this year in line with your plans?  Do you know what your net worth is?  Or what net worth means?  What are your financial goals for next year? 


Attitude – are you happy with how you have reacted to life in the last year? If you could change anything about your own attitude, what would it be?  How can you work on making that change?  What will be your theme for next year – being positive, being resourceful, being thankful, being something else?

 

Seize the Day – or “Carpe Diem” as the Romans used to say.  What could happen for you next year if you seized opportunities that came your way, if you got on with tasks rather than just thought about them?

 

To give you the opportunity to seize the day immediately, answer a few of the questions that resonated below.

  4. Its always good to take stock and ask yourself questions like these. My aims next year are to make a more concerted effort on my business and to put into practice what I have learned about training to make some progress. I have chronic fatigue syndrome so making progress has always been a challenge.

    Also I plan to move in with my girlfriend.

    A 5 day hypertrophy camp sounds amazing. You must learn some really in depth stuff at that.

  6. Seize the Day is huge. They say that opportunity only knocks once but mediocrity leans on the doorbell. Make the use of opportunities that come your way.
