Question of the Week #321

How often do you step back and reflect on where you are headed? Would less or more self-reflection be good for you?

I think about it all the time. Because I’m not thrilled with my current trajectory. I’m trying to change it. But change is difficult.

But the change will come. I have to believe that. Because if it doesn’t, the current trajectory will drive me completely insane.

How are you with the self-reflection? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below!

  1. If I’m working on something that I want to change behaviorally I will do a daily planning in the morning and reflection in the evening. For example if I’m trying to be a better listener I will look at my calendar in the morning and identify what are the opportunities for me to practice listening then in the evening reflect to see how well I’ve done.

    In terms of big life trajectory, I find that can be too overwhelming and try to break it down to every day (or even within a day) to find out what brings me positivity/energy and what brings me negativity/takes energy. If I pay attention to this I can make minor adjustments to favor the positives, but also recognize when I need to make a more significant change (and in what direction to make that change). I resigned my job and took a smaller/lower paying job a year and a half ago using this approach. Best decision in my life. Much happier. But I needed to do the daily work to see the need for change and understand what would make me happier.

  2. When I was in teacher’s college, we had to do a self-reflection EVERY DAY on our lesson plans and then when we had our day book looked at during visits from our advisors they would read the reflections. I kind of got into the habit of it since then. I do enjoy a good self reflection and trying to see how/if I need to better myself. We are constantly growing and evolving as human beings and it’s good to take that time to see where you are going/where you have come from.
