Time to reflect and implement something new

It’s that time of year where the leaves are starting to fall, and nature is showing us how we need to change and transform to survive the future. Which makes it a perfect time for businesses to review the past year and make plans for the new year ahead. 

I personally find it all quite exciting but then again I thrive on change. I know a lot of people who really fear and resist change so for them it can be a route they don’t go down unless forced. 

So firstly, why is reflection so beneficial?

When we have evidence available, we can learn a lot more. Sometimes we implement a change based on a need and we are unsure exactly how well it will go. More often than not there is no change because we feel everything is working and we lack the insight of the advantages a change could bring. It is important that we continually review our working practices and ask:

• What went well? Or What is working?

• What didn’t go so well? Or What is not working?

• What can we learn from this?

• What do we need to do differently going forward?

• What should remain the same?

Once we have the answers to these questions we can plan what we should do next.

Some times even a small change can have huge benefits so why not utilise the time now to ensure you are well equipped to start 2020 with a bang and start as you mean to go on.
