Use this Personal Annual Review template to reflect on your progress throughout the past year and to think about what you'd like to achieve in the year ahead.

What is a Personal Annual Review?

A personal annual review is an evaluation of your work and progress over the past year. It’s a chance to reflect on what you’ve achieved, identify skills you can develop and plan for the year ahead. It is different from a performance review, which is more focused on performance and productivity. A personal annual review focuses on personal growth, strengths, and weaknesses. It also provides an opportunity to review your career and set new goals.

Why create a Personal Annual Review?

A personal annual review is a great way to reflect on your accomplishments, identify areas of improvement, and draw up a plan for the upcoming year. By doing this, you can better understand your strengths and weaknesses, set practical goals and objectives, and hold yourself accountable for meeting them. A personal annual review can also help you gain clarity on your values, passions and interests, so that you can pursue your passions with purpose, and ensure that you are making the most out of each year.

When should I use a Personal Annual Review?

The best time to conduct an annual review is towards the end of the year. Many people choose to do it between the Christmas holidays and the start of the new year, but really it can be completed at any time. The most important thing is to give yourself a sufficient, uninterrupted amount of time to be able to conduct the review.
