Self-reflection is an important quality for anyone in their professional and personal lives.

It's good to consider what we are doing and how it's working out for us. Are there things we should keep doing? Are there things we should stop doing? Are there things we should start doing?

From a professional perspective, it's something you can do relatively frequently — weekly or monthly, in fact, suggests Seth Godin in his blog "Your Soft Skills Inventory".

If you find that you're not satisfied with your answers, it might be time to consider a bigger step. Perhaps your current role is no longer fulfilling you. Perhaps you feel under-utilised, not challenged, not using your skills to their full extent.

Here at Recstra, we believe in challenging our staff to be the best they can be, and helping them to push themselves, to grow and develop.
