Watch Yourself While Working
Look at your work and how you work.
Do you know that looking at yourself is a positive habit?
Do you know how to watch yourself?
It is simple to watch yourself in a mirror while doing work.
It is true that watching yourself is not always possible. Some work doesn't permit you to watch yourself in a mirror while working. Looking at the mirror may hamper the work.
Then, look at a video recorded while you worked.
Looking at a mirror is so simple yet subtle.
I often get doubts about myself. Sometimes, no external saying supports my self-belief. On the contrary, the external world often criticizes me and affects my self-beliefs.
It is indeed true that humans are fond of praise. But, how to know whether it is fake praise or a real appreciation? There is no sure-shot test to identify if an appreciation of an external crowd is authentic or fake.
You can look at yourself in a mirror and start self-assessing yourself. Have self-talk with yourself in a mirror about your past achievements. Dissect your work performances as a critique. Point out the qualities and pinpoint the defects.
Revitalize your self-image.
How to revitalize your self-image without asking for any external help?
It is not difficult. Rather it is super easy to monitor your self-image using a cheap web camera. Look at yourself through a camera, or a number of cameras from different angles.
Record videos of some parts of your work and watch them at your pleasure time.
Say, you are a dancer or a badminton player. You can video record your performance or game for some duration of your practice sessions. Later, you can play and watch the videos to assess the quality of your performance as a dancer or badminton player.
Self-watching yourself at work gives your ample scope to get rid of the defects and improve your physical and mental abilities.
Self-watching and self-asseesing are a proven method for the improvement of your physical and psychological self.
A mirror may help you to look at yourself while working.
Mirroring is a cool technique for self-assessment.
A camera can let your record yourself performing different work, such as cooking, running, swimming, painting, dancing, speaking, singing, and so on.
Self-assessing the recorded videos is an easy way of getting rid of the defects.
Using a camera to record self-videos widens the opportunity for self-evaluation.
Taking professional help from an expert coach is a traditional option that may (and should) be sought whenever felt necessary.
I remember I used to practice Tabla while in my school and college days. It used to help me detect my sitting posture, and facial expression while playing the instrument.
It was in the early 1980s and the digital camera was not available. And, we didn't have a video cassette recorder in our household.
Now, I have digital cameras, so I can look at short videos as a practice for any performance or talk or any other activities that I need to self-assess.
I believe that looking at ourselves and self-evaluating ourselves can be fun.

I remember doing this when I was working in a certain company before. One of the things our trainer encouraged us doing is to place a mirror in front of us while we do our job. I never did it though :D
