The end of the year is a time for reflection, gratitude, and planning. With our inboxes quiet and our schedules free of meetings, we can afford to take a moment and think about what we achieved and what’s next. On this page, you’ll find some examples for inspiration, as well as a simple annual review template.
- 2022: wander and wonder
- 2021: making friends with fear
- 2020: chaos and community
- 2019: growth versus goals
- 2018: from startup founder to indie maker
Annual review template
This is a simple 15-page template to help you conduct your annual review. It covers all key areas of your personal and professional life. Feel free to fill it and keep it private, turn it into a blog post, or share it as is.
You should ideally block at least an hour to fill it all. The more time you have and the more relaxed you are, the better. If you can, use your calendar or journal entries to go through events from the past year.
You can make a copy of this document to fill it online, print it, or write it all down in a notebook. Whatever works for you. The template is straightforward, but for a complete walkthrough community members can watch the recording of the annual review workshop.
And remember, reflection is as much about celebration as it is about letting go. Well done on being there, on being you, and good luck for the year ahead!
