Topics discussed in this episode:
PURPOSE OF REFLECTION
- Helping us remember what we said we were going to do or become - because we forget.
- Keeping us from getting distracted by circumstances or opportunities that take us away from our goal - because we get distracted.
- Providing regular time stamped mile markers that provide proof of progress or point to the need for a trajectory adjustment - because we get discouraged.
