New Year Reflection Journal Template for Work

Learn from your successes and challenges at work

As the year winds to a close, it’s time to pull out a reflection journal template. In our society we often minimize our work life as “just work,” but we spend the majority of our living breathing time at our jobs–and let’s get real, we think about work most of the time. That’s why doing an end of year reflection before creating annual goals is so important.

We speed through our workdays, which then flash by in weeks, months and even years at a job. If we don’t stop and reflect, we won’t learn from our mistakes or cultivate our strengths. If you want to make more $$ and climb the ladder: annual reflection and goal setting is critical. 

But where do you begin?
