I can’t say the writing process is as easy or fast as I would like, but let’s face it, that was kinda predictable.
That being said, content is being developed and added slowly.
I recently posted Chapter 6 to the website. It covers the many areas (16 in total) of one’s life where you could make improvements.
Here’s a quick list for those not interested in delving into the chapter yet.
- knowledge about self-improvement
- advanced study skills/ learning
- mastering emotions
- caring for your body
- thinking effectively
- building positive relationships
- helping others
- self-awareness and understanding
- meaning and purpose
- maintaining personal safety
- shaping your environment
- work skills
- financial control
- unwinding and having fun
- presenting oneself
So yeah, this is a lot of areas, but I am trying to encapsulate the entirety of a person’s life so 16 seems quite small in that context.
The number of areas is not intended to paralyze someone with choice, but rather illustrate that personal self-improvement can happen across a diverse range of areas. The challenge for an individual in this chapter is picking where in their life to start first. Hopefully, their ponderings from Chapter 5 (Purpose) will help.
Shaping my environment and financial control were two areas that I worked on quite a bit that have had positive wellbeing impacts. So the pathway to psychological wellbeing doesn’t necessarily involve a focus on emotions/feelings/thinking. It might be a financial advisor or a house organiser that has the biggest impact on your wellbeing, not a psychologist.
Let’s face it, the fewer psychologists you have in your life, the better.
Please enjoy 🙂
