Hi there,

The month of December comes with a subtle frenzy that is contagious; I hope you are catching the December frenzy and riding along. Once again, compliments of the season and Merry Christmas in advance.

Last week, we began a conversation on Makeover, not like the usual makeover as you know it to be but, a makeover for your mind to impact on your growth, development, and productivity as we wrap up the year and proceed into a new year. If you missed the article, kindly click here to catch up on the discussion.

In furtherance to the discussion we started last week, we will be discussing reflection as one makeover step required to help us plan and strategize towards a better 2022.

“If you always do what you have always done, you will always be where you have always been”. T.D Jakes. Reflection opens the door to growth as we reminisce on the past achievements and failures not to let the achievement get to our heads nor the failures to our hearts and hold us from going forward Reflection is improving what needs to be improved and strengthening what is already working and thinking of new ideas to create new opportunities. This requires asking yourself and answering difficult question because those difficult questions are the ones that cause us to grow.  

One of the most effective reflection tools or methods for carrying out reflection is the S.W.O.T analysis. S.W.O.T being an acronym that stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats. This analysis literally dissects us to us and shows us our areas of strengths so we can leverage them, areas of weakness so we can improve them, opportunities are around that we may have become blind to because we have only been looking but not seeing and threats to the greatness that lie within us. A proper S.W.O.T analysis will help you know for instance, courses you need to take to boost your chances in the new area you are looking toward, jobs that align with your strength and so on. Take this time, not just on groove and enjoy all the events and razzmatazz of the season but to expose you to you and make the appropriate decision and look toward execution.
