In this episode, Myke and I discuss the nature of reflection (self and otherwise). The idea that reflection is as much looking at the present and planning for the future as it is thinking about the past. By taking the time to reflect on where we are, we can better see where it is we want to be. Reflection is often about evaluating the now against the then. By reflecting on where we were, we can easily see if we have grown beyond. That, perhaps, all of these tweets, status updates, etc. are opportunities for such reflection.
