This is an interesting article, as many of us will agree, that although it is a good practice to evaluate ourselves on a daily basis, in real life most do not know how to go about it. When you look at the Hindu philosophy the crux will be focusing on,”Know Your Self.” Even in modern management concepts, the stress is on knowing ourselves in a clear and precise manner.
Our body and cells are undergoing change every day with or without our notice. Change is a universal phenomenon and we have to adapt ourselves to it in order to survive in this world.
Here comes the handy S.W.O.T. analysis technique where in we analyze our Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunity and Threat. Strengths are the positive points, which help us to stand unique from others. Weakness is the negative points that make us to fall. Opportunity is the area where we have more scope to learn and implement, so that our strength points will increase. Threats are the areas from where we may face opposition and by proper planning, adjustment and preparation we can convert them as Opportunities.
We have to list it and keep it with us so that on a daily basis we can go through it in the morning before starting our routine job and night before retiring to bed.
By continuous monitoring and correcting ourselves on a daily basis we can evaluate ourselves. Based on annual resolution our self-improvement goal may change every year. Accordingly our SWOT list will also change.
While doing SWOT analysis, we can also entertain our spouse, friends, colleagues and well-wisher views. So that by consolidating our list with out network list we can arrive at a combined list which will be more relevant.
We can rate ourselves on a monthly basis based on our achievement in improving ourselves according to SWOT. In this manner we can do Self-evaluation on a daily basis and improve ourselves. Best wishes!
