Your Year in Review 2023
It's that time of the year, and we're excited to bring you something truly special for our Christmas episode on the Maxwell Leadership Podcast. This year, we're continuing a tradition close to John Maxwell's heart—a deep dive into his year in review process.  As many of you know, John dedicates the final week of each year to reflect on the past 12 months. He delves into his journal, meticulously reviews his notes, analyzes his calendar, and assesses where his time and energy have been invested. This introspective exercise is a cornerstone of his approach to growth and personal development.  So, in this episode, we're revisiting a lesson where John generously shares his step-by-step process for this year in review. It's a guide that has helped him make pivotal decisions in both life and business, and we're thrilled to pass on this invaluable practice to you. It's not just transformed John's life but also impacted Mark Cole's journey and the lives of our entire team.  But that's not all—we want to do something different this week. Instead of our usual post-lesson application with Mark Cole and our co-hosts, we're encouraging you to take that time to implement what you've learned from John's insights. Use this opportunity to kickstart your own year in review. By doing so, you'll step confidently into the new year equipped with the wisdom and strategies that have the potential to elevate your leadership and your life.  Join us as we explore this transformative process and embrace the chance to make your upcoming year even more remarkable than the last.  Our BONUS resource for this episode is the “Your Year in Review 2023 Worksheet,” which includes fill-in-the-blank notes from John’s teaching. You can download the worksheet by visiting MaxwellPodcast.com/Review and clicking “Download the Bonus Resource.”  Want to take the next step in your growth journey?
