Reflection Cycles

What is the importance of reflection and how might the learning curve by affected by the rate of our reflection cycles?

I started pondering this question as a began to write the Work Journal. What this journal was doing for me was to create a discipline of reflection after each of my activities. I found myself asking what did I do and what did I learn?

By increasing the reflection cycles, might that increase my acuity? Might this practice help increase my focus on my next activity?

I don't have answers yet to these questions. Just wondering.
