The Annual Review
A new year is an opportunity to reflect on what you learned and accomplished — and make big plans for the future.

When you complete The Annual Review, you'll get an emailed copy of your responses and an optional reminder 3 months from now to check back in on your goals. This was the playbook for my own annual review and I hope you find it helpful!  — Jason Shen

Reflecting on 2016

"It is not by muscle, speed, or physical dexterity that great things are achieved, but by reflection, force of character, and judgment." — Marcus Tullius Cicero

Let's follow Ciero's advice and begin this Annual Review with a reflection the year that was.

What were your highlights from 2017? *

What went well? What were you proud of? What brought you joy and meaning?
What were your low points from 2017? *

What sucked? What went wrong? What made you sad / hurt / angry?
What lessons will you take away from 2017? *

What does the older, wiser you know today? What have you learned about 1) yourself 2) other people 3) the world at large?
If you had to give 2016 a theme, what would it be?

E.g. The Year of Exploration. The Year I Finally Made the Leap.
