Most of us are familiar with the idea that self-reflection can be helpful in understanding your life experience. It’s a good thing. Some of us do it naturally and some of us need a prompt. I think most of us could benefit from some planned exploration. This month, I’d like you to go on a journey with me into self-reflection.
Thoughtful self-reflection can create a nice, personal accountability. The key is to focus on what you control. This steers you away from the environmental factors that are always at play. You can’t control the weather or the behavior of your colleagues. You can however, control and decide to take action on your behaviors that have the highest correlation- or better yet causation -to success.
This month as we explore four questions, I believe that we can unlock even more success for you. Now, I will do my part and provide the questions and the context for your exploration. You actually have to do the exploration.
Each week I will review the new question and my hope is that you will engage and converse with me about your discoveries in the comments. I am trying to create a little intrigue here to inspire you to read. I will be here all month. I hope you will join me.
Our song this week is an old one. (They all are.) I used to love this story: “Cat’s in the Cradle” by Harry Chapin.
