“Self-reflectiveness is the quality that most differentiates those who evolve quickly from those who don’t.” – Ray Dalio

Are you growing, or in your own evolutionary doldrums?

Everyone reflects because we all think about things that happened, but the ‘quality’ of that reflection varies. If you are going to reflect anyway, you might as well make some of it useful reflection! But how?

Questions are the answer.

What went well that I am grateful for?
What didn’t go so well?
How could I do it differently next time?
What do I want more of?

Go on, take one minute right now, and ask these questions about your day so far today.

Here is an extended list of useful questions, and some tips on how to make the process more effective so you get more of what you want out of life.

My best wishes, Paul
