As a leader, you are really spread thin and barely have time for yourself. It is good to take this opportunity to relax.
You might want to use this time to reflect on your life. There are many activities that you can do to get back into the growth mindset.
You want to improve yourself and get you act together to reach your goals and insulate yourself from further failure.
Wondering what you can do as a leader to grow during the era of social distancing?
1. Communicate with your inner self
You can start the self-improvement process during quarantine by checking in on your inner self so you can to come out quarantine better than when you entered.
Sometimes, we are so busy that we don’t take the time to slow down, breath, embrace solitude and see how we are mentally doing.
Some choose to meditate and others to journal. Journaling is a great way to communicate with yourself. By writing down your thoughts, you free up you mind, confront and let go of past troubling experiences.
2. Make an honest assessment of yourself
When you know who you are and where you are, you will know which steps to take to reach your goals.
It requires real honesty and an ability to confront every part of yourself — the best parts as much as the horrible parts of yourself.
Doing that will give you a sense of who you are. Assessing yourself will help you gauge your strengths and weaknesses, get i touch with your purpose, identify the situations and opportunities that fit you.
3. Understand your worth
You have to believe that you are worthy as a person and still have room for improvement.
Furthermore, as you improve yourself, you will realize your worth, become wiser and make better decisions.
You can use this moment to reevaluate, reset yourself and organize yourself for the future. You will know how to tackle your goals as soon as things get back in order. To do so effectively:
- Think about all the things you have to do.
- Write down your goals and tasks. Then, set a time-frame, a level of impact, an order of importance and emergency.
- Foresee the potential obstacles that are ahead of you.
Not because you are cozy at home or remotely working that you have to let yourself go or give up on yourself or your goals.
5. Learn to compete with yourself
Nobody really knows what to do in life but the first step you can take is evaluating yourself and ensuring that your future self is better than your older self.
To compete with yourself, it helps to think as yourself as a brand, to have a prioritized task list and to regularly track your progress.
6. Unclutter your space
You may not be able to immediately improve on yourself but you can fix small problems around you that will free up some mental load and enhance your mental health.
The clutter around you occupies the space in your mind. To unclutter, you may want to organize your room or repair things around your house for example.
7. Do something worthwhile
To grow and get out of a somewhat negative space, it is imperative that you take responsibility for yourself.
Besides, you cannot stay in one place self-loathing or blaming someone else for your situation.
There is no need to dwell on your problems and go down the rabbit hole. Instead, figure out your purpose and do something with meaning that can outweigh your negative situation.
8. Connect with others
While you are bored in the house, we can get activated and still improve ourselves indoors or while social distancing.
For those who love to be social, you can use all this time to your advantage, connect more deeply with your entourage and build deeper trust.
You can talk to someone, who will help you grow, about your inner turmoils or your dreams.
9. Read all the books you can
Sometimes, we are stuck in one way of thinking.
It takes an external event or person with deeper knowledge to promote our mindset.
Books contain knowledge that you couldn’t acquire on your own, events that probably have or won’t happen to you. Either way, books will broaden your sense of self and open up your mind.
Nowadays, podcast and audiobooks provide us with the same purpose as books.
Last Words Of Advice!
