Every year I sit down and use these ten questions to reflect back on the year, and to look forward and think about the year ahead. Doing an annual review has been one of my favorite practices. Here’s how to do your own.
I find monthly reviews and annual reviews both to be great processes for my business growth, but there’s something specific to the quarterly cycle that is the perfect time frame.

Here’s the exact system I use in my business planning, the questions I use for reflection, and why a quarterly check-in is so powerful.
