Hello friends, hope you all are fine and taking good care of yourselves. I am always excited when its time to share with you all. I want to share a little bit on self evaluation, hope you learn something from this writeup.
In simple words, self evaluation is looking at your progress or development and learning to determine what has improved and what areas still need improvement.
If you fail to make out time to evaluate your personal life, you would hardly know if you are progressing, regressing or on the same spot. You can evaluate yourself base on your plans and goals in life and see if things are working out well as planned, if you need to add more energy and time, if you need to slow down a bit or if you need to make adjustments on your initial plans. As an individual, I always make out time to evaluate every aspect of my life. During self evaluation, I see where I am lagging behind most especially and try to see what I can do to step up, if I cannot get a better way to do things, I go ahead and ask others for help, advice and solutions. I also do self evaluation and celebrate myself on any advancements made (I don’t joke when it comes to congratulating myself on a job well done. I will share about self acknowedgement in the days ahead).
A lot of us young people leave a free life in which we don’t even know what is happening to us, we care less about our advancement and just decide to take things as they come. Doing self evaluation is like examining your life. Socrates , a great philosopher once said ‘An unexamined life is not worth leaving’. The only way you can know what next step to take in life, is only when you make it a regular thing of always evaluating yourself. Until you take out time to evaluate yourself, you will not understand or know whether you have been wasting time on the same spot. If the big companies and organizations can make out time to do an evaluation, how much more of us as individuals.
If you want to see how much you have improved in life or what aspects of your life needs improvement, then do a self evaluation
If you want to know your weaknesses and strengths, then learn to always do a self evealuation.
If you want to know whether you are moving forward, moving backward or on the same spot, then do self evaluation.
If you want to know whether you are wasting your time or if you need to add more time on what you are doing , then learn to do self evaluation.
If you want to know if you need to make adjustments to your initial plan, then do a self evaluation .
In self evaluation, learn to be honest and truthful to yourself. Do not be scared of always given yourself a chance when you find out you are regressing and also applaud yourself when advancing. You might not know much of what is happening to your own self until you learn to self evaluate. Always ask yourself; where was I yesterday?, where am I today?, and where will I be or where do I want to be tomorrow?. If you ask yourselve these questions then you will know what you need to do to get to your tomorrow’s destination.
For those who always evaluate their lives, great job and continue to do so and to those who do not evaluate their lives, its never too late to make it a habit.
