The hustle and bustle of life may cause us to lose touch with our rhythm so it’s important for us to allocate about 10 to 15 minutes a day to take a step back and see the big picture. Towards the end of the day, we have to process and understand what went well or what went wrong and this can be done through reflection.
Personal reflection is a very powerful habit. It’s definitely something that should be developed and practiced on a daily basis. Practice ultimately results in progress and can lead to a more successful and fulfilling life.
“Follow effective action with quiet reflection.
From the quiet reflection will come even more effective action.“
“” “ŠPeter Drucker
Reflection is a valuable learning tool because it lets us dig deeper and allow our inner wisdom to examine our actions and determine whether they are helping us or just causing us to make more mistakes.
“Learning without reflection is a waste.
Reflection without learning is dangerous. “
Establishing this healthy habit will keep us balanced and save us a lot of time and effort by centering all our energies in positive and productive activities instead of spending time trying to suppress negative patterns.
So no matter how busy you are, take time to reflect. Talk to yourself with respect, honesty, and tough love. Put all your thoughts and experiences on paper. The act of writing reinforces discipline and motivates you to stay focused and make profound changes in life.
