Embrace the Struggle through Reflection

Embrace the struggle. Putting it on big posters doesn’t make it more easy but it’s still true.

The Gym

Progress = Pain + Reflection

You won’t build up muscles without the pain. You won’t grow as a person without the pain.

My reflection routine: Daily, monthly and yearly

Daily: Personal progress

  1. What did I do well today?
  2. What can I improve?
  3. How will I improve it?
Wanna get better by 38x? Try 1% every day for a year.

Monthly: 30-day reflection on business, personal life & relationships

Yearly: Goal- and value-based recap

My last reflection session in Vietnam / Phu Quoc. I love my life ;)

Build your own system

Stretch your goals and seek the pain
