Looking at maths, you give yourself an A+ for recording things (which for me would be a part of writing). But how are you in the actual maths. Did you create these spreadsheets years ago and just fill in numbers? Did you improve your maths (that's what schooltests check, not if you're using maths and reading books, but if you're increasing your proficiency).
From what I see in your posts you're just continuing the use of skills you've learned a long time ago, but not as a student, expanding on these skills
I for one would give myself a A++ for my time spend on reading (I'm an addict, I read always). But regarding the improvement of skill? I've not specifically done anything to get better at reading. Haven't read complexer texts than in the previous years. I'm just cruising along on the same plateau.
What if you have to judged yourself on the actual learning of new things, rather than the use of existing skills? Do you still come out as well?
Thanks for reading my post. You're right, doing the same thing year upon year is not growth. It is stability, which is also worth celebrating, but I get your point and feel okay with my original self-evaluation. I just have to look back 12 months or so at the new math areas I learned in 2011, of which I'll list just four:
1. EPS growth compared with P/E ratios. (Growth at a reasonable price)
2. Real Estate Investment Trust Funds from Operations (New industry study)
3. Internal Rates of Return (Computed for cashflows)
4. Dividend growth rates (rather than just dividend yield).
