Take Care Of Yourself

In those airline safety videos, they’d always remind passengers to put on their own mask first before helping others such as a child. The core idea behind this is that, if you can’t take care of yourself, how can you take care of somebody else?

I have shared the areas in my personal life that I want to focus on here.

You should now take the next step going forward to identify the various areas at your people level.

This is an area that many goal-setting gurus would have you combined with the personal life.

I beg to differ. Here’s why you should separate people from your personal life.

Give It Focus

It might sound like an oxymoron, but no (wo)man is an island. We cannot not make connections and at the most primitive level, we seek out the idea of a community. We yearn to belong.

As a result, it is important to give the people areas its focus.

Here’s my areas for people. I see these are the roles I play in this domain called “people”:

    • Son
    • Husband
    • Father
    • Friend
