1.What reflection is “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” George Santayana

4 What reflection is and its importance
What is it? Why is it important? - The ability to use past experience to inform future action. - The active allocation of time to this review of past experience. - During this time, the analysis of that past experience to identify its features, components, causes and effects. - The identification of where help, improvement, knowledge or support can be gleaned from. - The commitment to an idea that nothing is perfect – everything can be built upon. You don’t rely on others to learn, grow and improve. You take forward positives and develop strategies to deal with negatives. It adds to your critical thinking toolkit. It improves the experience of those you serve, help or work with through your self-development. Graduate-level professions rarely want unthinking people who cannot learn from mistakes or enhance the field they work in.
