Annually, I review and update the entire Success Life Strategy (SLS). Throughout the year, I engage with different parts of the SLS at different intervals. For example, I may evaluate the Success Quotient section monthly or even daily based on working toward a goal, objective, or action item. On the other hand, no need to review my Values section unless I have a difficult decision to make that is creating conflict, doubt, or second-guessing.
To make next year an Exceptional Year, I review through last year’s objectives, goals, and actions and the Success Metrics assigned to them to determine where I succeeded and where the challenges lay. All of these taken into consideration together is my Success Quotient. The more I achieve these metrics, the more successful I am at reaching my goals. The old adage: you won’t achieve what you don’t measure.
Then review my Values, YOUnique Excellence Pillars (how I operate in the world), and the Impacts I want to make with my life. Reflecting on what I’ve accomplished, the challenges had, what I’ve learned, and new opportunities, I may make adjustments on parts of the Success Life Strategy. Then I begin working on the creation of my next “Exceptional Year.”
