As 2018 comes to a close, we take a look back at this past year. We’ve had highs and lows. We’ve seen people come and go this year. But we’ve grown.
And we could look at how we’ve grown in terms of revenue, profits, or employment numbers. But is growth always measurable? This quote we saw the other day really sums up 2018 in a much better way…
“Sometimes growth isn’t measured in numbers, figures, and metrics. Sometimes it’s measured in things like: confidence, identity, relationships, purpose, quality time, passion, resiliency. When you look at where you’ve gone this year, don’t just look at numbers, look at how you FEEL, how you LIVED, how you SURVIVED and OVERCAME.”
To prove this point, we turned to some of our team members and asked them the question, “If you had to describe how you’ve grown this year, what would you say?”
Here’s just a few of the responses…..
Not a single one of the responses had to do with increasing numbers or metrics – proving that growth isn’t always quantifiable. Growth in terms of learning, building confidence, and developing relationships is what you remember at the end of the year – not whether you hit that margin goal back in January.
We’ll continue to focus on personal growth above numerical growth in 2019. How have you grown this year?
