Formal, informal?  What are you doing?  Who‘s with you?  What‘s satisfying/fulfilling about the activitiy?  What‘s the atmosphere? Fun? Why?  What are you especially good at?  How do you feel about that?

If not, what do you want to do about it?
  16. 16. Personal Development at BESIG Conference in Bielefeld16Saturday 20 November 2010 The time of your life Work = time spent on your (un)paid employment Home = time spent on maintaining home & family Leisure =time spent on yourself doing what you enjoy („me“ time)
  17. 17. Personal Development at BESIG Conference in Bielefeld17Saturday 20 November 2010 The dream / reality gap The gap between what we dream and our reality can seem insurmountable. Don‘t let it put you off – you have more freedom than you think

  19. 19. Personal Development at BESIG Conference in Bielefeld19Saturday 20 November 2010 What‘s important now? What do you need to have for your business? What will make you feel satisfied and successful?
