Archiving and Creating New Rocks
Another important step to take when starting a new quarter or year would be to archive your old rocks and create new ones. Please see this link for detailed steps on creating and archiving rocks: Rocks - Creating, Archiving, Restoring, Sharing, Moving, and Changing the Owner of Rocks
Updating the V/TO™
The V/TO™ may be another area where updates are needed. Before updating the V/TO, it may be a good idea to make a backup copy: Generate a Printout For Your Quarterly Meeting

Updating the Level 10 Meeting™ agenda

Updating the Scorecard
Lastly, you may have a need to update your scorecard measurables. This may entail archiving your previous quarter's or yearly measurables (to start with no previous data in the scorecard cells), updating the goal, or changing who is responsible for a measurable. Please see the below links for details on updating a scorecard:
If you will be removing or archiving a measurable from a Level 10 Meeting™ because you no longer want to see historical data in the cells, it may be helpful to add the previous quarter or year in the measurable title, '2020 Sales Total' instead of just 'Sales Total' for example.
