Understand the conditions necessary for you to show up at your best by investing time to think, to dig deep, and to articulate what you want.
Reflective work isn’t always easy. But neither is being unemployed or perpetually dissatisfied. If you don’t want to do the heavy lifting because you just find the exercise too overwhelming, then you’re doing yourself a disservice. Most of us have a career by default versus a career by design. What’s most important in assessments is to find the patterns. Ask yourself what is consistent in your feedback. Also, sometimes the phrasing used in assessments can be helpful for you in describing your skills, strengths or traits.
This is no means a thorough list, but will get you started in the right direction.
I want to ask you, as clearly as I can, to bear with patience all that is unresolved in your heart, and try to love the questions themselves. For everything must be lived. Live the questions now, and perhaps then, someday, you will gradually, without notice, live into the answer.
Rainer Maria Rilke
