How well do you know you? When you look inside yourself, how close to 20/20 is your vision? Do you see yourself clearly? As others see/experience you?
Do you seek out feedback from those willing to (and in a position to be) be frank with you? We can be both confident and humble, indeed, the strongest are often those who practice the greatest humility, have no need to boast or beat their own drum.
Taking time for introspection, actively seeking out feedback: these all help us know ourselves better, live better lives, productive, on-point and laser-focused on our personal purpose.
