In the past I've done an annual report and shared it on my blog at the end of the year, inspired by author and artist Cynthia Morris.
When I was recently reading Atomic Habits by James Clear he suggested in addition to that, an "Integrity Report" six months into the year that consists of the following questions.
1. What are the core values that drive my life and work?
2. How am I living and working with integrity right now?
3. How can I set a higher standard in the future?
I hope those questions inspire and help you at this point in your year. Below are my answers if you are interested. And I would be honored to witness yours or hear about your experience if you spend some time reflecting or journaling on them.
Dear critical voice,
I know I don’t say it enough, so I wanted to publicly thank you today. I have misunderstood and judged you most of my life. I thought you were out to get me and always assumed that your intentions were evil. I experienced hurt and felt like I had to hustle to make you happy, but I was never perfect enough.
