How To Measure Yourself

Don’t measure yourself by what you have accomplished, but by what you should have accomplished with your ability. – John Wooden

Your greatest – and longest lasting – growth will come from you regularly examining the gap between what you do and what you were capable of doing.

By continually examining your results, your honest-to-goodness output against the truth of your talents and ability you will create a space of authentic opportunity to grow into.

But you’ve got to start by being honest with yourself.

First, with the idea that there’s more you could do, more you want to do, more you must do.

Then, slowly (but surely) develop the habit of being a little more honest with yourself and doing a bit more of what you know you can.

No radical overnight transformations (although that’s always an option, just generally not a realistic one . . .  ), but a slow and steady return to the truth of who and what you are.
