The Growth Practice of Reflection

Each month, season, and year brings different growth opportunities for entrepreneurs. An effective way of maximising this growth is setting aside time to reflect. 

Reflection is the practice of looking back on your experiences, feelings, actions and perspectives. By intentionally looking back, you can gain insights, vision for the future, and recognize how far you’ve come.

With many aspects of life being out of our control, reflection can be a useful tool to acknowledge the aspects of life you can control; your mindset, attitude and choices. 

There are many benefits to practicing reflection. Some of our favourites are:

  • Gain insight that helps you improve performance.
  • The opportunity to access your goals and move forward with more clarity and purpose.
  • Increased self awareness.
  • Cultivates a mindset of thankfulness.
  • Encourages celebration of one’s achievements.

Want to cultivate the habit of reflection? 

A great way to get started is set aside 30 minutes. Find a nice quiet spot and settle in with a pen, paper and comfort drink. Here are a few questions to get you started:

  • What is one of the highlights of your year? Why?
  • What is one challenge you are proud of overcoming?
  • If you could go back and give your year-ago self a piece of advice, what would it be?
  • What attribute do you want to cultivate more of in your life? (eg. kindness, peace, joy). 
  • What is one step you could take towards cultivating this attribute? 

Once you’ve spent some time in reflection, read back your answers, celebrate yourself and re-calibrate your goals as needed.
