How To Use Visual Notes To Conduct An Annual Review

Made any resolutions for 2015? Have you made those resolutions visual? If not, here’s your opportunity to do just that.

In this episode of Verbal To Visual Video I share the process of conducting an annual review. In the first of a two-part series, I look back at 2014 to share what went well and what didn’t for me, and encourage you to take a similar look yourself.

To help you use visual note-taking as a tool to explore last year and make plans for this year, I created this template:

In the next episode I’ll be sharing Part II of the series – a look at 2015 and the plans that I’ve made!
