Four End of the Day Questions to Ask Yourself

Self-reflection is like anything else in life: Small and consistent beats grandiose and occasional.  Bahram Akradi, CEO of Life Time

Already struggling with the goals you set for yourself for 2022? Accessing your progress on a daily basis will help keep you on track. Without daily assessment, you miss the opportunity to make adjustments when they’re small. 

As in business, when we constantly access, we can spot negative and positive trends and solve problems before they get out of hand. When we resist accessing honestly and often, trouble spots have a way of becoming acceptable habits.

Akradi suggests asking yourself a few basic questions at the end of the day:

  • Where did I do some good or make some progress today?
  • Where did I let myself or others down?
  • What can I do to keep my good habits going?
  • What can I do to address any negative triggers or trends before they get out of hand? 

Affirmation: To achieve my goals, I will develop a system to routinely access my progress. 

Honoring My Dad

My father used to say that it’s never too late to do anything you wanted to do. And he said, “You never know what you can accomplish until you try”. Michael Jordan, NBA basketball super star

We are spending Father’s Day in Portland, Oregon following the college graduation of  our grandson, Austin. I’m happy for my husband that he will spend the day with two of his three children and two of his 11 grands. It will be a great day of wine tasting and celebration!

For those of you who know me personally, you know how much my dad meant to me. He raised me from the age of eight and I was blessed with a particularly awesome dad. He was patient and kind, calm and consistent, understanding and forgiving, supportive and firm. He sounds like a saint…he wasn’t…but he was a darn good guy! He died nine years ago at the age of 92. I’ve attempted to take on his role of #1 Nebraska Football Fan and I hope my life honors his.

Affirmation: I honor my dad’s life with my own.

Coaching questions: What did/does your dad mean to you? How has he made a difference in your life? Not all dads are a positive influence. If yours isn’t/wasn’t, how have you dwelt with your circumstances?
