One of my favorite things to do in January is take inventory of where I’m at in my life, both professionally and personally (family, health, etc.), and reflection is a great way to get started with this.
First, I take a look back at what I’ve done over the past year that DID work, and then I also recognize those things that DIDN’T work.
Next, I turn to goal setting to get pumped up (and prepped) for what I want to accomplish in the new year based on what I’ve learned.
But you know just as well as I do that sometimes we set goals, but then we fail to actually accomplish those goals.

I recently had the pleasure of sharing my story with John Lee Dumas of Entrepreneur on Fire. John’s podcast is one of the top-ranked podcasts in iTunes.

It was 11:00 in the morning on a Monday…and I was on my way to the zoo.
That’s when I realized I’ve made it.
I’m about to record an interview with one of my favorite people in the world, John Lee Dumas of Entrepreneur on Fire. (Side note: He wrote a killer guest post for me that will be coming up soon…I can’t wait to share it with you.)
One of the questions he asks every interviewee is, “Have you had an ‘I’ve made it’ moment?” For some reason, that question rattled in my brain for a few days after we scheduled the interview.
