It is time to take stock, so here we go. Do you stop to have a little assess every so often? I like doing this exercise as quickly as possible, not trying to be smart ass about it, just tell it how it is (within reason). Less thinking, more thoughts.
If you fancy a go, I have left a blank list at the end for you to copy and take stock in your own life. If you like you can share in the comments or leave me a link to your ‘stock’ and I will pop over for a gander.
