Recently while in a recorded session with my coach, after listening to the recording, I learned a lot about myself. If we take the time to listen to ourselves, we’ll learn more about ourselves than we’ll know about others. When you’re open to change, you look for areas you can change. Sometimes it may be shocking or a reflection of words you have heard in the past, from a parent, teacher, friend or sibling. Words you’ve even expressed to others like, are you ready? You Talk Too Much!
Well, I can proudly say …”I talked too much” I was going on and on until I got on “my own” nerves! There’s a blessing in the lesson. God is always on time with His testing. When we take time to evaluate ourselves, we’ll know when enough has been said.
This experience has prepared me for my future interviews. I’ll be prepared to snip it, lip it, nip it or clip it when needed.
- When is the last time, you did a self evaluation?
- What did you learn?
- Do you have a plan for correction?
- What’s the plan?
My father often said...” Sweep around your own front door, before you sweep around mine”.
Ecclesiastes 5:3 (NIV)
As a dream comes when there are many cares, so the speech of a fool when there are many words.
