"A man who views the world the same way at fifty as he did at twenty has wasted thirty years of his life." That's one of my favorite quotes by Muhammad Ali. I would modify it slightly and say that if you view the world the same way this year as you did last year, then you've wasted a year of your life. Your experiences help shape the person you are and the person you will become, so I think it's important to always think about your experiences and evaluate what is going well and what needs to change. My manager and I go through this every year as we discuss how my performance measured against my goals and we set goals for the following year. I also go through a similar process personally as I evaluate my life, career path, relationships and finances on an annual basis. Each year, I become a different person and I view the world differently.
