There are times when you need to measure your progress on your journey. You can do this at a certain points of times during every transitions. Here are some suggested time and then some questions for you to ask yourself. The potential times to do this are:
Four months after a move
Two months after graduating college
Three months into a new job
Two months after retiring
One year after the loss of a loved one
Six months after getting married
What has been accomplished?
What is there left to do?
What has been learned?
How have you changed?
How are things different than you expected?
What do you know now that you did not know then about yourself? (Example: You are skilled in packing fragile items)
Reviewing and reflecting can help you get a fresh perspective and grasp of where you are and what you have accomplished. I encourage you to take some time to size things up. It can be revitalizing and give you some more energy to move forward.
