Your 2014 headline

Older gentleman (2)

My late 95 year old grannie came close to falling off her rocking chair at Christmas. A plate of mince pies nearly became flying saucers. The culprit was a question.

The question I asked was:

“What are the top 10 highlights of your life so far?

Her no 1 life highlight was being proposed to on Waterloo Bridge – sweet!

The question I asked her is a BIG question, isn’t it? I mean there’s incisive questions and there’s incisive questions.

Open incisive questions are useful for purposeful refection, ideal in a full-on world.

The slowing pace after Christmas and before New Year is a good time to reflect, ask yourself big questions and plan.

I start by going through my diary and remembering what I have done and then reflecting to mine useful insights and plan actions.

This is the first of a series of 3 seasonal blogs to help you do this.
