Dear Freedom Achiever,
How often do you block time off on your calendar so you can review the past few days, weeks, or months?
Most people don’t take this important step towards living well-designed lives because they get too caught up in the busyness of their careers/running their businesses, and other obligations but the benefits of consistently scheduling quiet moments to self-reflect are transformative in many different areas of our lives – including goal setting!
A study by researchers Giada Di Stefano, Francesca Gino, Gary Pisano, and Bradley Staats found that call centre employees who spent 15 minutes reflecting on what they learned during the workday performed 23% better after 10 days than those who skipped out on reflection. In a similar study of commuters in the UK, results showed that those who used their commute to think about and plan their day were happier, more productive, and more satisfied overall than those who did not.
