As another year draws to a close, and as you prepare yourself for the inevitable frenetic return of the work-life treadmill, you might allocate space for some deep thought. Not about others, your work, your family, but yourself. You.
Organisations of all shapes and sizes love to use staff appraisals to ensure that performance, engagement and motivation is optimised, supporting the achievement of corporate goals. So why not use an appraisal yourself to help realign your own individual success, health and, most importantly, happiness?
The Personal Appraisal
Many of us make new year's resolutions where traditionally we set ourselves ambitious goals which lose their lustre after only days, but why not think about what you want to achieve over a longer period and rather than one dimension, think about the key areas that will contribute to your overall happiness. Significant life-changes can rarely be achieved in days (without creating pain for others) so why not develop habits that will move you towards your new state of balance over weeks and months.
