Becoming a leader means becoming more fully yourself, not just acquiring skill sets. Take stock of all those areas of your life in need of change. Review your Vision, Values, Goals, Knowledge and Skills, Habits, and Daily Activities. Set new directions for yourself and prepare your Personal Improvement Plan (PIP). Draw a piegram with wedges of time allotted to Work, Family, Rest, Community, Self. Ask if the wedges should be arrayed differently?
Don’t wait until you’rewinded to quit smoking or until your doctor tells you, to lose weight. Be proactive and creative with personal change, not reactive. Use feedback from business associates to improve on-the-job performance, such as meetings-on-time. The payoffs are in personal mastery, as well as in a healthier lifestyle and attitude.
