Six questions for you, to say goodbye to this year and to start the new year with new energy

In less than two hours the year 2012 will be a thing of the past and we will start a brand-new year. 
I am not a big fan of New Year's Eve, and yet I find that this day is a great chance for everybody to think of ourselves, of our dreams, of our successes. Of our failures. Of all bad days. And of the good ones, of course.
To analyze our last 365 days and to prepare ourselves for the next 365 days.
To learn from the mistakes and from the achievements. 
And to forgive us and people we love and care about.

Before the year will be gone for good, please take some time to ask yourself:

#1. What did I hope for myself this year?
#2. What did I achieve this year?
#3. What did I learn this year?
#4. What did I do wrong this year?
#5. Are you happy with your answers? 
#6. What would you like to do differently the next year?

Happy New Year and see you in 2013!

In weniger als zwei Stunden ist das Jahr 2012 vorbei und ein neues Jahr beginnt für uns.
Obwohl ich kein riesiger Fan von Silvester bin, bin ich der Meinung, dass dieser Tag uns allen eine tolle Chance bietet: Wir können über uns selbst, unsere Träume und unsere Fortschritte nachdenken. Wir können über unsere Misserfolge, unsere schlechten und unsere guten Tage noch ein bisschen nachdenken.
Man kann seine letzten 365 Tage analysieren und kann sich selbst für die nächsten 365 Tage vorbereiten.
Man kann etwas aus seinen Fehlern und aus seinen Erfolgen lernen.
Man kann sich selbst und den Leuten, die man lieb hat, verzeihen.

Bevor das Jahr sich von Euch verabschiedet, fragt Euch doch mal bitte in Ruhe:

#1. Was habe ich mir in diesem Jahr erhofft?`
#2. Was habe ich in diesem Jahr erreicht?
#3. Was habe ich in diesem Jahr gelernt?
#4. Was habe ich in diesem Jahr falsch gemacht?
#5. Bin ich mit meinen Antworten zufrieden?
#6. Was möchte ich im neuen Jahr anders tun?

Einen guten Rutsch ins neue Jahr und wir sehen uns im Jahr 2013!

In meno di due ore il 2012 giungerà al termine e inizierà per tutti noi un anno nuovo di zecca.
Nonostante io non sia una grande estimatrice di Capodanno & Co. ho sempre considerato questo giorno una ottima occasione per riflettere su stessi, sui propri sogni, sui propri successi. Senza dimenticare gli errori. I giorni no. E naturalmente anche i giorni felici.
Tutti noi abbiamo una chance per analizzare i 365 giorni che abbiamo appena vissuto e prepararci per i prossimi 365.
Per imparare qualcosa dagli errori e dalle vittorie.
Per perdonarci e perdonare i nostri cari.

Prima di salutare per sempre l'anno che sta per finire, concedetevi alcuni minuti per un paio di domande:

#1. Che cosa mi sono augurato quest'anno?`
#2. Che cosa ho ottenuto quest'anno?
#3. Che cosa ho imparato quest'anno?
#4. Che cosa ho sbagliato quest'anno?
#5. Sono soddisfatto delle mie risposte?
#6. Cosa mi piacerebbe fare diversamente nell'anno nuovo?

Buon anno nuovo a tutti! Ci vediamo nel 2013!
