Have you ever heard this expression “Self-management”?
When you hear it what comes to mind?
- What does it mean to you?
- Do you have your own strategies and best practices?
- What is Your Strategy for Self Management?
- Is it effective? Does it work?
These are questions worth answering. You can self coach on self management – ask yourself…
- What does it look like when I manage myself?
- How could I benefit if I managed myself more often?
- Do I see the point?
- In what situations do I think I am already good at self control?
- When and how would I like to improve?
Our level of self management depends on many factors? We are influenced by others, situations, circumstances, emotions. Wouldn’t it be a great idea to prepare well?
- How do you find yourself in different moments during the day?
- Self management is about trust. Can you trust yourself no matter what life brings?
- Do you know yourself well enough to say that you are prepared to deal well with most situations?
- In what areas of life could you benefit from more self management?
- What has gotten in the way of your self management in the past and could do that again in a future?
- How can you prepare for that?
Self management is a balancing act. It’s a combination of other skills that when present, create the entire picture of your ability to manage yourself. You will need various levels of self effectiveness, self discipline, self awareness depending on a situation.
- What else is the key element of self management for you?
- Have you already mastered it?
- What action will you take to improve your self management?
- What can you start with today?
- How will you celebrate you success in self management?
For many people, developing self management starts with self observations. Watching your own ways of behaving, reacting, thinking. It’s a self awareness that must be in place first to assess your current level of self control. You can also benefit from watching others especially those who present a high level of self management already. What’s their secret? Can you follow their example?
Self management empowers. We cannot predict life events or control the behavior of others. But what we can do is start with ourselves and develop reliable strategies for self management to be prepared for (almost!) anything.
