First, look back

In a new year, the first step should always be to reflect on what has passed.

In business it can be called a ‘post mortem’. If you’ve heard the term, and if you’ve gone through them before, you know there’s a right way and a wrong way to get them done.

But the goal is basically the same for business or for personal reasons; learn from your mistakes.  At the least, we can all enter 2012 with that in mind.

If you want to leave a comment, consider telling us about a mistake you learned from.
