Today we’re talking all about Quarterly Reviews! They are wonderful for when your brain feels so full that you don’t know what the next step is. They can bring perspective to uncertain times and help focus the next stage of life.

Key Points from this Episode:

  • Quarterly Reviews are so great to help empty your brain and plan for the next chunk of time.
  • Start by reviewing anything you wrote down at the beginning of the year. Things like your vision, goals, habits (if you have them).
  • Review your last 30 days
    • Write down what you’ve discovered or learned.
    • Write down what you’ve accomplished.
    • Write some highlights that have happened to or with your family.
    • Write down what books or podcasts you’ve read or listened to.
    • Write down where you went (even if it’s just on walks around the neighborhood).
  • Ask yourself what went well in the last 90 days. There is something that is going well, even in the toughest times.
  • Be honest (but not mean) about what didn’t go well in the last 90 days.
  • What progress did you make on your goals? What goals are no longer relevant? What other goals emerged? What goals will I focus on this upcoming quarter?
    • Think about “becoming” goals like being patient, being kind, not yelling, etc.
    • If you’re feeling more on top of things, take advantage of the new freedom in your schedule! Be creative with what’s in front of you right now for the next 90 days.
  • Decide what’s most important for you to be excited about and focus on in the next quarter.
    • Connecting with your kids every day, cleaning up your home, starting a creative project to keep your hands busy, scripture study etc.
  • Ask what do you want to stop doing and what do you want to start doing.
    • Set limits on apps or other electronics that you are spending more time on than you want to be.
  • Rate yourself on a scale of 1-10 in the following areas. Ask yourself why and if there is anything you can do to bump yourself up the scale just a little bit.
    • Intellectual
    • Social
    • Emotional
    • Avocational
    • Physical
    • Vocational
    • Marital
    • Financial
    • Parental
    • Spiritual

Patreon is the place where we can come together as mothers and intentionally cultivate growth together. Each month you can gain access to printable worksheets that go along with topics in the podcast to help us slow down and make lasting change – not just be inspired for a few days and then move on. These worksheets are what I’m personally working on and talking about with my closest friends – and I want YOU to join us!

Cultivate your growth intentionally with us through two worksheets a month, a online community, and a monthly group video call to share our “big wins” and things we are still working on.
