And that can feel… like getting your teeth drilled at the dentist’s office.
I’ll admit, as much as I believe in how great the Year In Review process is, that doesn’t make it entirely pleasant to actually experience. But the benefits make this sometimes painful process worthwhile.
You’re invited to read my analysis of what happened—good and bad—for my business in 2018.
The PESTEL tool is used to evaluate various threats and opportunities in 6 key areas: Political, Economic, Social, Technological, Environmental and Legal.
It is typically used as during long-term planning to get a macro (big picture) perspective on issues that could impact the organization. Combined with the SWOT Analysis, this tool can provide incredible insights for risk intelligent decision-making.
Can we be aggressive toward someone and not even know it?
I think we can.
Aggression is behavior that is hostile, forceful, or destructive. It comes from the Latin ad- (“to”) and the word gradi (“to step toward something or approach; to attack”).
It is an outward expression of inward anger that can cause incredible harm to others, even if we don’t realize it at first. Sometimes it’s difficult to know what aggression looks like, especially if you’re very comfortable with a highly competitive atmosphere.
Conducting a “year in review” process is incredibly useful. It can also be excruciating, because looking back at the good & bad of the past year forces us to confront uncomfortable realities. It serves as a window to evaluate goals, examine priorities, and identify where we’ll focus our energy in the coming year.
In this post, you will hear how my Year In Review has strengthened me as a business owner. I’ll share what happened for me professionally in 2017, what worked and what didn’t, and some lessons learned.
