Know Yourself

As creatures that think and walk and talk, we often think that we know ourselves.  Self-awareness is a key leadership competency.  Leaders though, know all about that - except do we take into consideration other aspects of ourselves, not just the 'work-leader' characteristics.

Ask yourself these questions:
  1. Do I have a healthy body?  Exercise and eat properly?
  2. Do I have a healthy mind?  Take time to focus on things other than work?
  3. Do I have a peaceful soul?  Find time to meditate or relax and clear the mind?
  4. Do I have healthy habits?  Enjoy time with family and friends, travel and explore?
Determine which area needs work and put a plan in place to help yourself move in a new direction.  You will find that you will have more energy, better focus and a clear mind.
