List Your Achievements
Think of the best three to five things you accomplished this year and write them down. You must have achieved those goals because you did something spectacular or improved your skills or began a new behavioral pattern. Whatever you did to achieve those goals should be listed as your strength.
List Your Shortcomings

This is also the right time to create a plan on managing your weaknesses such that they can be used to achieve your goals.
Brace Yourself for the Next Level
The world is evolving really fast and you cannot afford to be left behind. The end of the year is a great time to look ahead and figure out what you need to start doing to prepare you for the changes that may occur in your professional, financial, social and personal life.
