Friday Feature: Self-Evaluation

This semester, I'm once again teaching a first year seminar where we're talking about things like success, perfection and happiness. My goal isn't just to get my students to think about these things and learn about them, but also to get them to think about themselves in relation to these things and to maybe discover a little something about who they are, and who they want to be in the process.

As a result, I'm compiling quite a collection of articles toward that end. This one, from Dan Waldschmidt's blog, was posted last New Year's Eve -- a great time for introspection and personal reflection.

But what if we don't have to be college freshmen to ask ourselves these questions? What if we don't simply reassess around the start of a new year?

How would you answer these ten questions?
