They say self-reflection helps you grow but is too much of it bad? In a study, well-known organizational psychologist Tasha Eurich found that people who scored high on self-reflection were more stressed, less satisfied with their jobs and relationships, more self-absorbed, and they felt less in control of their lives. Does that mean we should stop reflecting?
If we want to build our introspection muscles and make reflection work for us, we need to re-pivot from “why" to “what". Asking “why" traps us into the past and makes us victims of the operating context. Framing the same question as “what" helps us take ownership of our problems. Also, it enables us to zoom out and analyse what happened with an objective lens.
This is obviously easier said than done but is surely worth a try.
