You Have Homework

I am nothing if not self aware. With self awareness comes the understanding that I am not perfect. My frequent screw-ups make room for personal growth, and I’m dedicated to moving in the right direction no matter how many times I stumble.

Whether you’d like to grow professionally or personally, it takes a conscious daily effort. Viewing self improvement as an assignment helps me stay accountable.

First, I take a look at how I did on the “quiz” (or the issue at hand, whether that’s a task at work or a tiff with a friend). What did I do well? What did I not do so well?

Once I have this information, I can form a homework assignment for myself. What skills do I need to practice on my own time that will better prepare me for the next time I face that situation?

There’s always room for improvement! What’s your homework this week?
