Today’s letter for the AtoZ Blogging Challenge is ‘U’ for my theme ‘A to Z of Effectiveness’. You can read more about my theme here. I’m also participating in the NaBloPoMo for April.
We’ve got just 6 letters left in the AtoZ Blogging Challenge! I honestly didn’t think I’d get this far! We’ve been talking about various aspects of effectiveness and the many ways of achieving it, as described in Stephen Covey’s book, ‘The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People’.
So it’s natural that when you follow these methods, you’ll find some sort of improvement in the different departments of your life. But you can’t let your life move one step up and then stay put there, can you? You need to continuously review and renew your steps so that your life’s progression follows an ‘upward spiral’.
It is important to remember that a proper upward spiral is only possible if equal growth happens in all four dimensions of your life – physical, spiritual, mental and social/emotional. For every improvement you seek to make or every habit you want to change, you need to follow the pattern of Learn->Commit->Do. You need to know what exactly you’re going to do; i.e. have a plan. Then you make a commitment to it, which is where your discipline and motivation comes in the picture. And then follows action! Following this sequence continuously will take you on an upward spiral of growth and fill you with the peace and contentment you’ve been yearning for!
Do you think your life is moving in an upward spiral? Or is a shortage in any dimension holding you back?
