It is a good for us to engage in critical self-assessment throughout our lives. Even if we have been in a particular job for a long time, the demands of the job and our interests can change to the point where we may no longer be a good fit for it. At that point, it may be time to consider another vocation. Self-assessment also helps us do our current work better. The more we know our gifts and desires, the better we can work with our coworkers to produce the best product or service possible.
