As I was walking the dogs, I was listening to a podcast that talked about measuring growth in your life.

I thought it was really interesting how he brought up how the only way to really compare whether or not you’ve grown is to look in the past.

A lot of people think of growth in terms of ideas, like I’m going to become this person, or I’m going to lose X amount of weight, I’m going to exercise like this, I’m going to take this class, I’m going to stop doing X Y Z, whatever it is.

But that’s normally how people think about growth; they look at it in terms or future versions of themselves or what they can achieve instead of actually looking at true growth and measuring it and looking into the past.

Who were you three months ago? Six months ago? A year ago? What New Year’s resolution did you make that you didn’t keep? What did you say you were going to start doing that you didn’t do?

This is how real growth is measured, and it’s not a quick fix; it’s not an overnight thing. It is a long term, let’s look at the last six months of your life and see where you were and see where you are now.

Is anything different? Is the quality of your life better? Has it improved? Have you done the things you wanted to do?

I just thought it was interesting how comparing the two, what a lot of people think growth is and how they think about it, and what actual growth is, and how to measure it and see if you are growing as an individual, seeing if your life is improving.

My question for you is, where were you six months ago? A year ago? What did you not do? What have you not followed through with? What have you not achieved yet that you said you were going to start doing?

This is something I ask my moms to do on a regular basis. Let’s get real; let’s examine the facts. Let’s actually grow and see improvement.
