Welcome to another Front Line Friday with my remarkable guest, Bridget Gleason. On this week’s episode, Bridget and I discuss, among other topics, Bridget’s exciting new position, what to do about end of the year reflections, things that are really important, and determining what to do better next year.

 

KEY TAKEAWAYS

[:47] Bridget is opening a U.S. office, of Logz.io, based in Tel Aviv, in Boston. She can be contacted at Logz.io or at LinkedIn.

[2:50] This is the last episode of 2016. It’s time to reflect on the past year. How do you conduct this with your team? What does Bridget refer to as ‘a habit of reflection’?

[5:10] Personal reflection covers different facets of life -- family, business, etc. Have you given the right time to family and friends? What about to health, exercise, and learning?

[6:22] To start the year, Bridget is very goal-oriented, professionally. She writes goals in a journal, and keeps them in mind. She reflects, what would she change in the next year?

[8:15] Both family relationships and business relationships impact your success. How do personal relationships affect business? How has Bridget learned to work more efficiently?

[11:16] When you look back, do you start with your failures, or your successes? What were your unexpected achievements, and why did they happen?

[15:25] What do we do about the times we didn’t achieve what we wanted to, or didn’t live up to our standards? How do we take an honest look at our failures?

[16:34] What has Andy learned from theologian Paul Tillitch’s quote on achievements and failure?

[17:21] Ryan Holiday’s book, Ego Is the Enemy, reminds us to keep our own egos in check.

[21:48] According to a recent survey, what is the one thing, in looking back on life, people wish they would have changed?

[26:00] Bridget quotes from Devotion: Love and the Power of Small Steps, by Kim Nicol. What does Bridget see is the trend on mindfulness in the workplace?

[28:17] Andy cites Turning the Mind Into an Ally, by Sakyong Mipham, and Mindfulness for Beginners: Reclaiming the Present Moment -- and Your Life, by Jon Kabat-Zinn Ph.D.
