Self-assessment is a powerful tool because it allows you to be honest with yourself free from outside influence and in the privacy of your own space. So walk yourself down the path you take daily and examine the pieces that make up your presentation to the world.

Think about the shortcuts you took, the skipped steps. Then challenge yourself to start doing the things you should be doing but stopped.

I challenge you to raise the bar and your standards. Break from the comfort zone that has become your daily routine and push yourself into unchartered territory. Look, gains in your career and life don't come from where we have been and what we've done; they come from where we are going to go and what we are going to do.

Until next time, continued success!
