How can I manage my life effectively?
  4. 4. The Key for Successful Living Personality Ethic Character Ethic Focus on attitude and behavior  minor change To change the situation first we have to change ourselves and our perceptions  significant, quantum change Works in short term situation (symptomatic treatment) Has personal worth in the long term relationship Social band aids that treats only acute problems temporarily Treats the underlying chronic problem

  9. 9. Can we create a HABIT? • We are what we repeatedly do • Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit • Habits are learned and unlearned • We are not the habits, hence we can change them
  10. 10. Effectiveness is defined as p/pc balance • p= production = what is produced, the desired results produced • pc = production capacity = producing asset. Maintaining, preserving and enhancing the resources that produces the desired results • Maintain the p/pc balance: – Balance short term with long term – Take time to invest in a relationship – Win the customer more than the call

  122. 122. FOUR UNIQUE HUMAN ENDOWMENTS 1.1. SSelf-Awarenesself-Awareness We begin to become self-aware and explore the programs we are living out. We come to realize that we stand apart from our programming and can even examine it. We also realize that between stimulus and response, we have the freedom to choose. This self-awareness then leads to the ability to look at other unique endowments in our secret life.
  123. 123. Our conscience is our internal sense of right and wrong, our “moral nature.” It is the “greater harmonizer” and “balance wheel” of all the principles that govern our behavior. Our conscience gives us a sense of the degree to which our thoughts and actions are in harmony with our principles. 2.2. CConscienceonscience FOUR UNIQUE HUMAN ENDOWMENTS

  125. 125. Willpower refers to our determination, our resoluteness - our ability to act based solely on our self-awareness. We ask ourselves, “Am I really willing to to the distance on my mission statement?” “Am I willing to walk my talk?” “Am I really willing to put first things first in spite of external distractions and pressures?” “Am I going to live a life of total integrity?” 4.4.

  126. 126. Developing a mission statement isDeveloping a mission statement is foundational to Habit 2, Begin with thefoundational to Habit 2, Begin with the End in Mind. It sets general guidelinesEnd in Mind. It sets general guidelines for our life based on our values and ourfor our life based on our values and our roles and goals. There are four basicroles and goals. There are four basic characteristics of good missioncharacteristics of good mission statements, whether they be personal,statements, whether they be personal, family, or organizational missionfamily, or organizational mission statements.statements. BASIC CHARACTERISTICS OF GOOD MISSION STATEMENTS
  127. 127. 1. A mission statement should be timeless and changeless. Because goals are not timeless, they should not be included. Mission statements should be based upon unchanging core principles that operate regardless of present realities or situations. This changeless core will enable us to live with changes inside other people and inside the environment. As our consciousness grows and we mature, we will gradually strengthen, deepen, and improve our mission statement. Nevertheless, we should always initially write our mission statement as if it will never change - as if it were timeless. BASIC CHARACTERISTICS OF GOOD MISSION STATEMENTS
  128. 128. 2. A mission statement should deal with both ends and means. Ends have to do with what we are about. Means have to do with how we go about achieving those ends. Principles are what we implements to achieve those ends. Ends and means are inseparable. In truth, ends preexist in the means. “You’ll never achieve a worthy end through unworthy means.” BASIC CHARACTERISTICS OF GOOD MISSION STATEMENTS
  129. 129. 3. A mission statement should deal with all four of our basic needs: a. To live (our physical and economic needs) b. To love and to be loved (our cultural and social ends) c. To learn (our needs to grow, develop, be recognized, and be useful) d. To leave a legacy (our spiritual need for meaning, for feeling that life matters, that we add value and make a difference. BASIC CHARACTERISTICS OF GOOD MISSION STATEMENTS
  130. 130. 4. A mission statement should deal with all the significant roles of our life, such as a parent, teacher, manager, neighbor, and so forth. “Internalizing” our mission statement will also help us get a clear understanding of what is truly important. Goethe once said, “Things which matter most must never be at the mercy of things which matter least.” This means that we learn how to say no at appropriate times. Every time we say yes to something that is of little or no importance, we are saying no to something that is more important. Almost every day, most of us are caught in circumstances where we should say no but don’t. We often lack the ability to utter a firm but gracious no. BASIC CHARACTERISTICS OF GOOD MISSION STATEMENTS
