2014 Annual Review

Recently I subscribed to James Clear‘s blog and his writing and advice has resonated with me. The last time I felt like someone was speaking directly through me was Cal Newport’s Study Hacks blog, which I discovered during undergrad, and I felt it directly addressed the issues I was having with keeping up with my intense courseload. James Clear posted his 2014 Annual Review in December, and it reminded me of how we do annual self-evaluations for work. I read through my evaluation for 2013 and enjoyed reflecting back on that time, how much I did then, what didn’t go well, and what I’ve learned since. So I’m going to follow his template with the following three questions: 1. What went well this year? 2. What didn’t go so well this year? 3. What am I working toward?
