Reflection, it’s not always so easy. When looking back it’s often easiest to focus on what went wrong, things you didn’t do, things that could have gone better, things you wish you hadn’t done altogether. I think this is just human nature, our desire for evolution and improvement. So even though (I think) I know this, why is it often so hard to reflect on the positives, and do so concretely, or even sometimes remember them altogether.
Why am I talking about this? Well it’s that time where I need to look back at the last year of my career and assess my performance, my highlights and opportunities for growth.
