What is a successful month?

I’ve just done my own personal review for April. As I looked at the list of things I wanted to achieve I realised that I had pretty much failed to complete them. However, perhaps I should redefine success. I have been trying to implement Covey’s ‘sharpening of the saw’ from the book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. This is all about keeping balance and developing four distinct areas; mental, physical, spiritual and social.

The last of these is the area that I find most difficult: social. Being a natural introvert on the MBTI scale I don’t look forward to mixing with too many people. However, looking at April I really pushed myself, got involved and was quite a social chap. Therefore, perhaps I need to look a little less critically at what I do, and give myself a little pat on the back.

Oh, and I’ll try to balance them a little better next month…
