Our President, Cam Macmillan, recently shared a poignant message with the team to stop and take stock of our year:

One really useful activity I have done over the past years is to take an in-depth review of the past twelve months.  Doing this in December really gets me to understand just how much has been accomplished.  I am big on moving forward, setting bigger goals and pushing.  But it is very useful to celebrate the accomplishments of the past and dissect the wins and losses.

As another whirlwind year comes to a close, go back, reflect and don’t be afraid to pat yourself on the back.

So often we’re looking to what’s next – what’s the next deal, the next project, the next blog post! It’s worth a moment of your time to reflect on what made you successful, what you tried that didn’t quite work and what you can learn from the past 12 months.

2013 is just on the other side of the door now, don’t walk in blind.
