Reflection activities can be a quick fire way to get your mind focused and your efforts back on track.
Do you even know who you are at this point?
Can you remember what you achieved last April? last month? last week? The reality is our work moves so fast that it’s impossible to be switched on 100% of the time to how we are performing.
We react to the many moving parts of our business on an hourly basis and if we’re not careful we can end up miles away from where we want to be.
What seems like a good decision at the time (especially when it comes to taking on certain work or projects) can actually be detrimental to achieving our overall goal.
That’s why it’s essential that we get our head above metaphorical trees once in a while to check how things are going. It’s also essential to our self esteem because like it or not our brain is a critic but with some simple, objective reflection work we can celebrate the wins and rationalise our mistakes.

Like tea and biscuits or wine and cheese, a good reflection goes hand in hand with a killer roadmap. That’s because in order to truly understand if you’re making progress you have to know where you want to end up. And I don’t mean the big dream in 5 years time. I mean where do you want to be in 12 months? Next month? Next week?
Enter the roadmap.
A simple, strategic document that keeps you crystal clear on what you want, why it matters and lines up the steps you need to take to get there.
A roadmap not only provides you with the clarity you need but it’s a black and white indicator of whether you are achieving what you set out to achieve. There’s no hiding when it’s written out for all to see.
So if you find yourself lost in the day to day activity or hiding behind your laptop and procrastinating the really important (and uncomfortable) actions then this is for you.
