If you’re of emotional energy to be completely honest with ourselves or to assess ourselves objectively.
We have a massive host of cognitive biases that color how we see the world and how we see ourselves, and it’s incredibly easy to justify ourselves to paint us in the most positive light.
So with that in mind, I want you to answer some questions as honestly as you can. Sometimes when things go tits-up it is someone else’s fault.
