I highly recommend using this review and planning tool, created in part by Paul Schadler, MD. This is the ninth year I’ve used it, and it helps me keep my focus on all that is most meaningful to me. Give yourself several hours over two or three days to work with it. Give yourself the gift of being very present, without rushing through it.
