The New Year is a classic time for evaluating past performances and accomplishments and taking a personal inventory for the coming year.
In my first book A Working Woman’s GPS I created a Personal Inventory Guide to help, not only assess your skills, influence and impact but also to evaluate the projects and people you are involved with daily.
In the Personal Inventory I recommend breaking down your circumstances into five categories, the first of which is People and Energy. Click here for a one sheet guide to Inventories from The Working Woman’s GPS.
Value: What is your guiding principle?
That is a wonderful and yet difficult question to answer. Often we are guided by the basic needs of home and family and if we are lucky, we earn our living doing something that is satisfying. But if that isn’t the case for you, you need to take a personal inventory to determine just what is it that you are good at and what is important to you. Starting by determining your guiding principle is an excellent place to start.
It is all about determining your Impact and Influence.
I followed up the discussion of creating your working GPS with my latest book – taking what we discover about our goals from the first book and putting it into action in Accelerate Your Impact.
Together, these two books help guide your journey from discovery to implementation to success!
