Christmas is here and the marketers for the major retailers have put a bow on the holiday shopping season. There's just one more thing to do, and that's to advertise the heck out of the After Christmas Sales. It's one final opportunity for retailers to make a sale heading into the new year and a last-ditch effort to close out the year on a high note.

It's hard to believe that we have just one week left in the year we know as 2013.

So today's post is going to be very simple. It's time to reflect on 2013, the year that was, and to start thinking about 2014. Here are a few questions to ponder:

  1. What do you want to accomplish in 2014?
  2. How would you rate your 2013?
  3. What would you have done differently this year if you could do it all over again?
  4. What's the biggest life change that happened to you in 2013? Get married? Have children? Lose a parent?
  5. What's the best thing that happened to you this year?
  6. What's the worst thing that happened to you this year? What did you learn from it?
  7. How do you want to better yourself in 2014? Learn a new skill? Meet new friends? Expand your network?
  8. What's one thing you want to change about yourself in 2014?
  9. What's your best accomplishment in 2013?
  10. What's your best memory from 2013?

Take some time and think about the answers to the questions above. You might find some of your answers will be eye-opening and may lead you down an exciting path for 2014. At the minimum, it will give you an opportunity to go back and remember the year. Seems like yesterday we were counting down the days for 2012, anxiously awaiting the dawn of 2013. And here we are, eager and excited for 2014.
