“I know more than I know and must learn it from myself.”
This wonderful line from the novel Gilead by Marilynne Robinson, captures the power of reflective thought. When we “reflect” we are our own teacher, bringing consciousness to something we already know or recently learned and teach ourselves.
YouFlerish provides the tools within in your Network link to document your reflections. Use the Takeaway feature to add those reflective moments and to put thought into action.
Allocate at least 10-15 minutes for reflection a few times a week in an environment that supports you. Be in a positive state of mind: Are you at your best in the morning or evening? When is your mind more open, alert? Switch off all background noise and devices in order to create the best conditions.
Some early birds find their best time to reflect is between 5- 6am. Morris Jackson, our Client Success Director makes himself a protein shake in that early hour and sits in his favorite chair. He has his YouFlerish app open and begins to ask himself:
What areas of my life are important today?
What Objectives do I have to reach these goals?
Who can I add to my Network?
Who would be a good mentor/sponsor for me?
Use your time to look back and to think forward. Keep your Objectives and Takeaways updated so you can watch for patterns of success.
