Notes from the previous Timeout: For your first annual Timeout, you obviously won’t have notes from the previous year, so PJ suggest you start with the JADE List (JADE is an acronym for Joys, Accomplishments, Delights, and Entertainment.
On your second annual Timeout, you can then begin by reading the previous year’s notes. For PJ, this ritual reading is a never-ending surprise. They’re often amazed and occasionally chagrined at how much they did, or sometimes did not, get done. Timeout has been, and continues to be, a work-in-progress; sometimes goals are accomplished as planned, and sometimes they aren’t. The reality of those results is often enough by itself to set the tone for digging deeper and creating richer experiences to review for the following year.
