  • 33. Self-awareness helps you exploit your strengths and cope with your weakness. For instance, if you are someone who is good at “seeing the big picture “ that surrounds decisions, but not as good at focusing on the details, you might want to consult colleagues and subordinates that are more detailed- oriented when making major decisions. Co- operation between big- picture –oriented decisions makers and detailed- oriented decision makers can produce high quality decisions.

  • 35. Accept yourself: Stop worrying about the things you can’t change. Be more accepting of others and the things they can’t change. Try not to compare with others. It’s unfair. You may compare their strengths with your weaknesses. Judge yourself in terms of your own growth
