Replay of the Day

I tend to replay my day in my head when I'm driving home.  I reflect to an extent on what went well, but mostly it's a reflection on what didn't go well.  I think this is an important exercise toward becoming a better leader.  

Where did I rush someone who was trying to tell me something important?  Where did I choose words that caused anxiety instead of spreading calm?  Where did I side-step something that needed to be said but that felt too difficult in the moment? 

Reflecting on these points in no way assures that I'll get it right the next time, but I believe it moves me a step closer to being the kind of leader I want to be.
