Are You Better Than Last Year?
At this point last year, were you as good as you were this year?
This isn’t just a metric of sales. This is a metric of learning.
The answer should be that you are always growing. Always thinking. Always striving to be better.
The day that it becomes old hat, or common place, is the day that you need to seriously consider doing something else.
If you believe you are constantly improving, ask yourself what deficiencies remain, and shore them up.
This isn’t just a professional career growth introspect, but also one of the soul. Everyone has flaws. No one is perfect. But those who do not attempt to shore up some of their flaws do themselves as well as those around them a disservice.
