Yeah, this is what I meant about pride -- not the hubris kind, but the satisfaction of knowing you worked to achieve something, and succeeded.

Being aware of/tuned into yourself, your feelings, your strengths, your weaknesses -- that seems like a useful thing.

I don't know what you mean here. Can you explain how you use sign-in sheets (and what they look like)? Is it a way to hold yourself accountable, and/or to record your effort/progress?
