How to get the best from Lockdown

How to get the best from Lockdown.

The situation varies from day to day, but your mission remains unchanged.

Your mission in life is to get the best from ANY situation.

It important to note that whenever you enter a situation, what you do or say, will have one of three outcomes.

Your actions may:

  1. Improve the situation.
  2. Fail to improve the situation.
  3. Make the situation worse.

It is important to note that:

  • Nobody will want to pay you for failing to improve the situation.
  • People will dislike you if you keep making the situation worse.
  • Everyone will love you if your actions improve the situation.

How can you ensure that you always improve upon the current situation?

Look at the diagram below and you will see how things work.

  • Your current results are being affected by your current actions.
  • Your actions are being affected by your knowledge and by how you feel.
  • Your feelings are a product of your thoughts, beliefs and attitudes.

Personal Effectiveness : How to get the best from Lockdown

From the above diagram we can derive the following principles, in order to get the best from any situation:

  1. Gain all the knowledge you can, that is relevant to the current situation. Educate yourself. Get the facts.
  2. Act only on the basis of factual knowledge.
  3. Do not take action on mere guesswork, unsupported opinions, or arbitrary theories.
  4. Manage your emotions. Do not allow negative feelings to take control of your actions.
  5. Your feelings are a product of your thinking and your attitude.
  6. So, think positively about what your ideal state would be. Think deeply about how you can use your education and knowledge to build practical action plans, that will deliver your goal.
  7. Keep a positive mental attitude, especially during tough times.
