23 Self-Reflection Questions for 2022 and 2023

Updated: Jan 4, 2023

Happy New Year !

“Follow effective action with quiet reflection. From the quiet reflection, will come even more effective action.”

– Peter Drucker

As busy individuals, we are often forward thinking and focused on what's next. However, when we don't pause to reflect, we miss out on learning opportunities and the chance to find wisdom we can use in the future.

Many people don't actively practice self reflection. Why? There can be lots of reasons but some include:

  • Not having the time

  • Not liking the process

  • Not liking what they see ( esp. failures)

Let me help you make this process a little easier. Let's look back at 2022 with the following questions as a guide. I personally recommend writing down your answers because it allows you to process any emotions that may arise and slows down your thoughts and the entire process. Take your time with this and you will reap the benefits of self awareness and growth.

Review of 2022

  1. In one word, sum up 2022?

  2. What challenges did you overcome?

  3. What was your favourite moment?

  4. What new habit did you start?

  5. What would you do differently if you could?

  6. Who had the biggest impact on your life?

  7. What did you let go of?

  8. What are you thankful for this year?

  9. What did you leave unfinished?

  10. How did you have fun this year?

  11. How did your relationships ( family, friends, work) evolve?

  12. What advice would you give your last-year self?

Let's move on to goal setting and reflection for the upcoming year. I would also encourage that you write down these answers and keep them accessible so that you may review them on a regular basis.

Goal Setting and Reflection for 2023

  1. Pick one quote, prayer, mantra, for this upcoming year.

  2. What is your intention for next year?

  3. What do you want to change completely?

  4. Which existing relationships do you want to focus on?

  5. What career opportunities do you want to create for yourself?

  6. What personal qualities do you want to strengthen?

  7. What will you say “no” to?

  8. Who will you ask for help and support from?

  9. What is your greatest fear for 2023?

  10. What is your greatest hope for 2023?

  11. What will you do to step out of your comfort zone? What new thing would you do this year?
