Spring is here, and I’m thinking about all of the things I want to do in my garden. It is really tempting to just start planting things, but before I begin this season, I need to reflect on last season. This process of reflection is a form of evaluation.
In its simplest form, evaluation is determining if things went the way you had planned.
In order to evaluate, we need two things:
When I’m thinking about last year’s garden, and whether or not it was a success, I need to first identify the criteria for success. What did I want from my garden?
Understanding my own expectations allows me to identify what data I need.
Do good and be well,
