How I do my year review.

Dec 4, 2022

The end of the year approaches, soon it’ll be time to turn a new page and decide what to do with it. Doing it, without considering where we’re starting from, makes us disregard important learnings. In this note, I’ll show what I do to avoid that trap myself.

The process is simple and consists of filling up three markers for different areas of life.


  1. What went well
  2. What didn’t go so well
  3. What I can improve for next tries

Areas of life:

To each area of life, I create a table with a column to each marker, and then I fill the table.

So it doesn’t become a burdening process I try to keep things simple, avoiding overthinking each column, and I also define a time limit for each area of life.

That’s it.

One of the biggest benefits of a personal year review is the learnings. The more we look at what we did throughout the year, the more learnings we’ll find; about ourselves, how we developed and the life we’d like to have.
