Who loves a test? What is your first reaction when someone, a boss, a teacher, a mentor says to you …. Ok, time for a test! Lets’s see how you are progressing, how you are assimilating the teachings, the learnings, the course material.
Yikes! Spotlight now being turned on me. Cringy gut feeling of trepidation. Did I study enough? How well did I integrate this new knowledge? Can I articulate it back orally or even written? Can I demonstrate my understanding?
Can I even recall it ? 😉
Do we sometimes over estimate how good we really are?
Is this a good thing or a bad thing?
Is self assessment an oxymoron?
As the year approaches an end it is time for that introspective look within … how will I answer questions like:
Can I state what I want out of life in 12 words or less?
Do I perform successfully using hunches & intuition?
Are my actions consistent with my beliefs?
Bring it on, mental & spiritual gymnastics ahead!
And I won’t be barking like a dog!
