Are You Making a Difference?

Do you ever feel rushed, wondering how you are going to get everything done? 

Does it sometimes feel like you go from one fire drill to the next?

There may be something important you want to do, but for some reason, you hear yourself saying, “I don’t have time.”

As leaders, we’re asked to champion change. Sometimes this is exciting and other times it’s easy to wonder how you’re going to fit that request in amongst everything else.

We all get things thrown our way that we never expected. Yet, our job is to navigate them and we have a responsibility to help others navigate them as well.

It’s hard. 

It’s also normal to question your progress; to wonder if you are making a difference.

How do you evaluate your impact?

Every day, I dedicate time to reflect on the day’s events. I then do a longer session on Saturday morning to reflect on the past week.

Why? It makes me feel good—and helps me realize how much I actually accomplished.

If you don’t stop to reflect on and feel good about the progress you’ve made, what’s the point?

This week, I’m sharing the questions I ask myself every week to evaluate my productivity and reflect on the past week. Want to build your own habit of self-reflection? Check out this video:
