Measure the Mark

Each year, I take stock of where I was one year ago and what I accomplished in that time.

This servers to answer a number of questions;

  • Have I grown as person?
  • Have I challenged myself?
  • Am I proud with how I have conducted myself with others?
  • Was everything I accomplished worth the sacrifice to other areas?  Did I choose wisely?
  • Am I on the right path to what I want to accomplish?

For everyone one of these questions, the follow-up is the always the same – “If not, why not?” – why am I not being challenged, why did I not grow, where did I go wrong?

But it doesn’t end there, then the planning starts, the planning for next year, what do I need to do to get to where I want, to answer YES to all those questions with zero hesitation.  And if I answered YES to all those questions this year, what do I need to do to ensure that I can answer YES to them next year.

It’s a look in the mirror and a point where I’m able to set the proverbial watermark for next year – this is where you are starting, this is where you are going to get to, now go to it.

Set your Mark and Measure yourself against it.
