Want to plan and set goals for the next quarter? Super! But before you do, review your life with this q4 reflection worksheet.
What has been going well? What have you enjoyed? What are you grateful for? Before planning and setting goals it’s important to reflect on the past. So I’ve created a pretty and practical quarter four reflection worksheet that can guide you to reflect on your past before setting new goals for the next 12 weeks .
I hope you like it!
Why is it important to reflect on the past before setting new goals?
Before setting new goals it’s important to reflect on the past.
- help you identify what went well
- learn from the mistakes you might have made
- give you great ideas and perspective
- and if done well might even make you happier.
This simple reflection worksheet goes perfectly with the other quarter four printables I’ve created.
You can use it as-is or add it to your US letter sized planner or resize one of the design that comes without the boarders to fit any planner or bullet journal, and use the excess white space for notes or doodles.
And the worksheets look quite cute. Don’t they?

More information about the printable Q4 worksheet
I’ve created a “feel-good” reflection worksheet that’ll help you reflect on your past before planning and setting goals for the next 12 weeks.
I want you to succeed, plan a super productive quarter and to feel good about yourself while doing that.
And I think that self-reflection plays an important role in that.
The third quarter reflection worksheet includes the following sections:
- The most important goal you achieved
- What inspired/excited you
- The lowest point(s)
- Emoji that describes your feelings
- New skills you learned
- You were happy spending time with…
- What are you grateful for
- The leasson(s) you learned
- Your favorite things
This Q4 reflection worksheet is a simple and fun way to reflect on the past before setting goals and planning for the future.
It’s good to look into the past and learn from it, but it’s also wonderful to remember (and even relive!) all those beautiful and important moments that happened. And this self-reflection “tool” is like a diary page and a feel-good way to do so.
Color: The printables come in 4 different designs: pink, black & white, beige and blue, so that you’ll find one that you’ll like.
Size: The print is US letter size, but you can resize the one without the boarders to fit any planner or bullet journal, and you can use the excess white space for notes and doodles.
How to use the quarter four reflection worksheet
Here are the detailed instructions on how you can use the quarter four reflection worksheet.
You can also skip these and go download the printable (at the end of this post) and come back to these if you get stuck while doing the self-reflection.
But if you do want some extra tips and guidance then here we go:
1.What is the most important goal you achieved?
Here you can write the biggest goal you achieved that moved you the most to the “right” direction towards your vision.
Or you can write here a few mini goals you achieved.
And remember that a goal doesn’t always have to be something efficient and super-productive.
If your goal was to relax and take time for yourself, and you did that, then that’s great!
And if you did have some work-related goal that you achieved or you spent your time decluttering and organizing your house, then that’s amazing too!
So if you set a goal and you achieved it, then this is the place to write it down and feel good about yourself!
2. What inspired and/or excited you?
Here you can write the things that you were most excited about. Did you discover something new? Did you enjoy something unexpected?
3. What was your lowest point?
To learn from our past we also need to visit some of the not so uplifting moments.
And if you experienced a “low point” like if you were low on energy, you didn’t feel like doing anything, you made a mistake or something like that, then this is the place to write it. And after you’ve written it down, it’s time to reflect on that see what you can learn from that experience.
And then you can move on – but take what you learned with you.
4. Which Emoji describes your feelings best?
I think this is so much fun! Draw here the emoji that describes the overall feeling you had. Be creative! Check the emojis on your phone for inspiration!
5. Which new skills did you learn?
Here you can write the things you learned or new things you tried. It can be anything from learning a few words of a foreign language to trying a new dish you never thought you’d try.
It doesn’t have to be anything mind-blowing.
It’s just important for you to see that you’re always improving.
And if you did do something mind-blowing then that’s awesome!
6. Who were you happy spending time with?
Who were the people you spent most time with? Was it your family? Was it your friends? Was it your coworkers? Did spending time with them make you happy?
Was there some great conversation you had? Did you do something fun with a friend? Was there someone who made you laught?
Write those names down.
7. What are you grateful for?
Write here the things you were and are grateful for during the past 12 weeks. Don’t be too generic. Dig deeper and be specific.
Feeling real gratitude makes you feel instantly good, spiritually wealthy and opens your mind for setting new goals.
8. Which “lessons” did you learn?
Did you learn something valuable from something that happened?
It can be a positive experience or a negative one as long as you can take something from it with you.
9. What were your favorite things?
And here you can write down your favorite things. Not your all time favorites, but the ones from the past 3 months.
So what were your favorite…
Psst! Sometimes the most expensive purchase is not the best and sometimes the longest vacation is not our favorite.
What did you enjoy? What was fun? Did some choice surprise you
