Being obsessed with self-development and growth, I’ve always set multiple goals that I had to achieve no matter what. However, I’ve never bothered to review my progress and document my successful goal completion, so I think 2019 is the right moment to start doing it.
The year 2018 was a tough one for me. There were many ups and downs that I would like to recall on. In this 2018 progress review, I will focus on the positive side only because that is what matters.
“Focus on the good and strive for it no matter what. You’ll no longer be interested in the bad.”, were some of the words I told myself.
While setting goals is a part of self-development, reviewing them is the foundation of it. Progress revision is one of the self-awareness tricks that you can use to understand how well things go for you. Some entrepreneurs like Stefan James, Thomas Frank, and other young successful people review their progress weekly, monthly, and yearly.
Tracking your progress throughout the year would have probably given you a hell lot of insights. However, it’s very time-consuming and boring. Well, or at least, I just have no willpower to do that regularly. Anyway, this is my 2018 retrospective.
This is how the combination of self-awareness and self-development works. You need to be aware of what you’re doing, and then 5 minutes later be able to say that all that you did makes no sense. This is my life. I come up with an incredible idea today which I absolutely reject tomorrow because tomorrow I have another incredible idea.
The lesson here is that you need to take everything that works for you today. Tomorrow, you’ll find another source of inspiration, and that’s absolutely fine. The cool thing is that the source of inspiration that you’re looking for may be you. Document your success once in a while just like I did here. You’ll learn from yourself and about yourself because you learn when you share, and not when you consume.
That is self-development.
