It’s hard to take time out of our harried lives to engage in activities from which we can learn, stretch and grow. The best ways to do so often involve taking risks, which can be scary, so another culprit kicks in: fear of criticism and its henchman, the human brain.
Let's talk about anger! In our culture, we're taught that it's "bad" and to be avoided. Naturally then, when we experience it - or worse, show it, not only do we have anger to deal with but close behind comes shame.
There are many tips and tricks out there on how to become successful. However, understanding what you shouldn’t be doing is just as important as understanding what you should be doing. Your efforts will be worthless if something is constantly holding you back.
1. Commit in writing to personal control of your time and office.
2. Set goals - focusing on objectives not activities, and start small - but think big.
3. Prioritize - do first things first; plan step by step.
4. Keep a time log to identify areas for improvement.
