Principles For Self Renewal

>> Monday, February 8, 2010

Like Stephen Covey's "Seven Habits Of Highly Effective People", "The Art Of Self Leadership" by Dr Tim Elmore share his own sets of habits with interesting analogies.

- The Iceberg (Your character)
The 10 percent above water is your skill-set. The 90 per cent below water is your character, comprising your values, standards and belief system. It is what's below the surface that sinks the ship.

- The Starving Baker (Feed yourself)
Do not be like a starving baker who spends time baking for others but forgets to feed himself. Take time out for your personal interests or to be with your family and friends.

- Drivers and Passengers (Be a driver, not a passenger)
Drivers and passengers have totally different perspectives of their journey. Drivers focus on the destination and the route to get there. Passengers pay no or little attention to the direction taken. Be responsible for your journey and destination in life. Proactively review your life goals, and plan your work-life around your priorities.

- Emotional Fuel (Be connected)
People closest to you are your personal network of emotional fuel. Do not run out of "gas"; spend time with your loved ones, mentors, role models and accountability partners to re-ignite your passion for work and life.

- Big Rocks First (Prioritise your daily tasks)
Imagine that you are filling a container with rocks - you must put the big ones in first to make room for the smaller ones. Identify your top priorities for that day, and address them before you move on to other activities.

20 per cent of the daily tasks will help achieve 80 per cent of desired results.

Chinese New Year is around the corner, it will be a good time to take the opportunity of the long holiday for self reflection.
