A great leader has achieved self-actualization.

Sonia’s Self Assessment!
I knew I was having a tough week, but I didn’t realize how tough until I did my self-assessment. I realized this week that I am stretching myself too thin. I want to do it all and be there for everyone… my spirit is overly enthusiastic!
So this past week I made changes and asked for help: delegation helped! I also took a Twitter break and reorganized my office, like I said I would. My office is now an oasis of peace, even my kids like it!
The assessment helped me understand what I need to work on this coming week. My overall energy is low therefore I will work on only one aspect: Physical! In focusing there, I hope to also boost my mind, emotion and spirit (always thinking efficiency!). And since I tend to throw myself into many great projects, focusing on only one thing will be a good test for me!
What will I do to be on fire to inspire…? Commit to working out every day!
What will you do based on your scores?
