I’ve been rereading this book by Stephen Covey, the first time I read it I think I was only around twelve years old! I really didn’t ‘get it’ then, but it shows how long I’ve been into reading Personal Development books!
Anyway, I started reading it again recently, and have set myself a “Challenge” to focus on and develop one habit a month for the next seven months. I’ve been blogging about it on one of my business sites, Excellence Coaching, and will be updating over the months on that site.
The first habit that I’ve been focussing on for July is Being Proactive, looking at what is in my Circle of Influence and what is in my Circle of Concern.
I’ve been finding it challenging, because I can no longer whinge about something (ok, it hasn’t stopped me totally) I need to work out what I can change, what is in my circle of influence, and let the rest go. Whining and complaining is much easier!
