Every year I do a three-part review and planning process. I call it Review, Reflect, Forward. Today’s post is Review. This is a look at numbers and other metrics from my work this year.

Favorite pens: Pentel Energel (this year I discovered the needle tip 0.5 version and love it!)
Books read in 2015: 33
Conferences attended: 9 (I loved going to BBCON and Web of Change)
Number of flights taken: 10
Webinars taught: 19
Clients worked with: 8 (I purposely worked with fewer clients this year so I could focus on the quality of my work as well as other projects)

Heart warming emails, notes, tweets, calls that remind me of why I do this: too many too count
Top “pinch me” moments:
#1 – Telling intensely personal stories through my weekly emails and receiving so many stories in return from other people. It’s the most amazing thing!
#2 – Teaching 39 amazing people during The Storytelling Non-Profit Master Class and continuing to hear the amazing results and shifts that are happening in their work and lives.
#3 – Accepting that it’s okay to pivot the focus of my work to personal storytelling in addition to organizational storytelling. This is a pivot I have wanted to make for many, many months, but it’s only been in the last month that I’ve been able to embrace this and start to make some small changes
