I’ve found these questions to be a great launching point for a long-form journal entry looking at the prior year and considering the next.
What was your favorite single day/event of the year?
What was the best thing you built/created?
What was the most impactful decision you made for you and your family’s future?
What was your best financial achievement?
Did you achieve any lifelong goals?
What was the hardest lesson you learned over the past year?
Did you develop any new hobbies or passions? Are there any new hobbies or passions you want to develop in the New Year?
What was the most humbling experience of the past year?
What is the one thing you are most grateful for from this past year?
What are your personal goals for the coming year? Family goals? Religious goals? Health goals? Financial or career goals?
