Reflecting on the past year – two questions

As the year is ending, I am sure many of you are reflecting on what happened in your life this year.

Last time I spoke to a group of young people, one student asked me a question – “How do we measure our own progress in this year? What are the metrics?

The question made me think. As you can imagine, there is no one right answer or one right approach to this. I came up with two questions that I thought will nail this a bit. Thinking back, I will stick to the same questions today. Here  are those two questions:

“What are your significant contributions to the world this year?”

“By how much has your ability to make a difference in the world increased as compared to the last year?”

I hope you all had a great year and are looking forward to the next one.

Enjoy your weekend!
