Highly Effective People

This week, I attended a workshop based on the book 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey. The last habit is "Sharpen the Saw" which involved preserving and enhancing the greatest asset you have--you. It means having a balanced program for self-renewal in the four areas of your life: physical, social/emotional, mental, and spiritual. Here are some examples:

PHYSICAL: Beneficial eating, exercising, and resting

SOCIAL/EMOTIONAL: Making social and meaningful connections with others

MENTAL: Learning, reading, writing, and teaching

SPIRITUAL: Sending time in nature, expanding spiritual self through meditation, music, art, prayer, or service

Go ahead and sharpen your own saw!
