He that measures not himself is measured

This saying deals with the idea of self-criticism.

Unless you consider your own performance, and how well you have measured up to expectations, others will be quick to spot your shortcomings.

It is a recommended practice to self-assess regularly - to have goals and objectives that can be quantified and measured in some way. Regular assessment lets you know how you are doing and where you need to improve.

Don't wait until a competitor or mischievous person points out your faults, or quietly exploits them.

The Japanese have a word kaizen that means constant checking and improvement, and they have used the concept to great effect in personal and business matters. Do not wait till you have been tried in the balance and found wanting.

Easter is a time of renewal - act now.
