Daily self-reflection is key for leaders seeking continuous improvement. Carve out a quiet moment at the end of the day to ask yourself four questions: how do your actions line up with your principles / how effective are you / how do you feel in your heart / and, most importantly, what do you need to change tomorrow? Without such a practice, unaddressed issues can repeatedly pop up. Taking regular time outs to notice how you do what you do is a powerful way to change your results for the better. Try it consistently and you’ll discover answers that lead to unexpected and rewarding approaches -- speeding up the achievement of the goals you have set for yourself and your organization.
