Performance review and life planning

May 8, 2011

One of the difficulties we face in our industrialized age that thwart us from molding our life, shape it or reshape it, is luck of planning and refining.  Let me first explain what I mean. When you hit a desert for a long journey, instantly you figure out that you have to consider  some measures  that include defined road map,  water container, stick to protect yourself and probably store with you some food; otherwise your life would be in danger. Similarly, the same theory applies to each area of our life. We should be prepared to what life throws on us.

However, in the sense of the world of today, and as the things seem to rapidly change, growingly we became stick in the block of need for speed race and that necessitates a kind of organizing and planning if we want to maintain a good position. We no longer have the same means of transportation, communication and activities. People seem to be impervious on this matter. They don’t pay attention to the train of time and the necessity of planning. And that why they miserably remain the same for a long time or probably for the rest of their lives. They don’t review their performance to see where they are? Why they didn’t get what they want? Because luck of planning. Setting goals and building plans to reach them, using all available tools to make them happen is so important.

Assessment is a powerful word. It is good to review your activities and evaluate your current situation to see where you are and what should be done next to fix the things that have not worked for you and  ask yourself, why? There is no better than sitting down and thinking about self image and productivity. Most people spend month after month year after year without reviewing what they do to learn from their mistakes and resolve to get better and better in future endeavour. They  put a lot of time in front of TV wishing they could get a better life.  As we grow into that cycle one year blend into another in a seemingly an endless parade of tasks: pennies in the pocket and blank bank account and we are running behind our promises.  Hard truth, is that we cannot be happy unless we become productive.

This luck of productivity necessitates a look back on self and  demands an insight over how one’s  life can be mended.  Why don’t you  stop for a while to ask yourself, these questions, ‘Am I in the right direction?” What can I do to evaluate my skills, to measure  my success, to refine my relationship? How can I be an attractive person?

Most of us blame what they are for circumstances: things cost so much, the government, company, family, friends , economy or co-workers. They are not really happy because they can’t get what they want. They live their lives with wishes and give a little efforts to work and change! If we would like to have what we want we have to forget about everything and focus on US, the self. The problem is not in the economy or government or any other outside circumstances  the problem is in your philosophy, your low skills, your poor education, your attitude, your luck of planning and your  activity. So let’s work on YOU.

If you probe into your soul and assess your strength and abilities and why you are not reaching your goals you must recognize that you are just not qualified or your setting goal plan is messed up.  For example, if you have a well fixed goal and use all tools to make it happen, nothing can stop you from it. When you do this simple self assessment and knows that the reason behind your failure is because you are not qualified, and you luck some discipline then you can work to improve yourself.

 And the process is simple. You just take some steps and disciplines. Life couches defined this process as Personal Development. Learning some skills and starting to practice them in your life. It might be books to read, seminars to attend, or taking classes to improve your skills. Start setting précised goals and work on them. For example, your primary goal for this year might be to get a good health. You can do that by first stopping the things that make you and others sick. Like smoking and substance abuse. Then you can read a book on how to become healthy and maintain a good shape and you will see how your health will change.

If you are not happy with your salary and you want more money you plan to get some classes to improve your skills and sure enough your wage will increase.  The more you work on yourself the more your give value to your life. I learned from Jim Rohn a powerful statement. He said, “work on yourself more than you do on your job, if you work on your job, you can make a living, but if you work on yourself you can make a fortune’ which is superfine. I can’t give you better advice…

The insights in this note are seeds that have the capacity to lead you for a better future. Stop procrastinating and start organizing your life by priorities and don’t let hours after hours, days after days, and years after years destroy your life by not using them for your own service.
