Reflecting Forwards: Annual Review Template
2022 was one hell of a year... But what did you learn from it? This is a chance to mine the year for golden nuggets of self-knowledge. And for those of you who experienced struggles, this is a chance to derive meaning and insights from those experiences.
I've been writing annual reviews for 9 years now, and it has been one of the most rewarding exercises of my life—so I've taken many hours to craft this template for those of you aspiring to go deeper with your review process.
I encourage you to use this as a starting point for yourself. Steal what's useful, delete what isn't. Add your own questions, remix it any way you want and really make it feel like your own. This template is designed to be more provocative than prescriptive.
Reflect on what really mattered in 2022 and set intentions for 2023
