You went for a run...
Boom! Faster than last week.
That's what your phone tells you.
The problem is, this doesn't work for personal development.
It's hard to quantify.
It does not only improve self-awareness.
Journaling also makes visible how you changed.
Sometimes, when I read what I wrote 5 years ago -
I'm happy to see what I've learned.
And sometimes, my jaw drops: "Is THIS what I thought?"
I shake my head and start laughing.
Another way I try to understand my progress is by asking for feedback. This seems obvious, but I'm wondering how many people actually do this on a regular basis.
If you feel courageous, consider the "Dinner of Truth". You invite a friend over for dinner, and you ask him/her to share what annoys him/her about you.
🔹 How do you measure personal growth?
🔹 How do you track your progress?
🔹 What's your main KPI? 😉
