I’m becoming more proactive physically and psychologically by taking charge of my goals and activities that I’m responsible for on a day-to-day basis. There have been unexpected surprises and challenges for me over the last few months, but I’m learning to remain calm and under control; for instance, my daughter was diagnosis with cancer and is undergoing surgery in the next 24 hours. Truthfully, my thoughts are discombobulate and I’m feeling overwhelmed, but in the mist of this unexpected life event, I’m thinking proactively in ways that will bring about solutions and move my daughter and myself forward in a productive manner, while hoping for the best for my daughter. ...view middle of the document...
One major risk I have taken at the personal, interpersonal and/or organizational level is using resources to achieve my goals. I felt my goals were “my goals,” using other people to accomplish them, was out of the question. I’ve learned there are so many resources and tools available to achieve my goals i.e. people, tools, systems and much more I can use to help me accomplish them. In the past, I felt like a failure if I did not accomplish it by myself. I’ve learned over the last few months that it’s okay to ask for assistance. I have a lot of family, friends and colleagues who are more than supportive to my goals. My aim is to be successful in completing these goals. I’m sure I’m being used as a tool to help someone else achieve their goals and I’m not even aware of it, which is all right with me.
Some of the results and effects I’ve seen to-date are – I’m no longer easily overwhelmed with a lot of information, people and tasks that sometimes use to get the best of me. I’m acquiring effective knowledge, strategies and tools that are helping me to eliminate those many small things that so easy use to cause me a lot of stress and discomfort. I use to get this feeling of overwhelm, not feeling capable of being able to deal with many tasks or situations at one time, which is the cause of my existing hypertension. I am no longer dealing with chronic stress and fatigue. I have learned to effectively take back control over my life.
I’m getting better at re-evaluating my purpose, what I stand for and my desire to be significant and time efficient in everything I do. My actions and/or practice events in the last eights months of the BSM program has brought me to handle unexpected challenges more than I have in the past and trying my best to be part of a calming improvement around the clock. I’m periodically organizing myself and my environment, keeping a watchful eye on time consuming habits that may interfere with my progress and success. They have been identified and I’m now working on a plan to free myself of these awful habits once and for all.
Now that I’ve learned this new found skill in time management, I will use this process diligently to perform my next targeted skill and will continue to work on it. I do realize at times this process is going to be very uncomfortable and somewhat tedious, but I understand why, because anything new takes time and effort to put into practice and eventually will become a daily routine.
When it comes to time management the method is pretty straightforward, however it may take a little patience and some effort. Now that I’m learning organization and managing my time, I am now taking control over my life and have a chance to do more of what I want to do with my family and friends
Three of the most challenging tasks I’m facing in this program are; 1) Organizing my thoughts; sometimes I find that there is just too much information circulating around in my mind at one time. I’m trying to...
