Paul A. 455 Posted December 17, 2022 Author Share Posted December 17, 2022 (edited) NEW JOURNAL FORMAT 12/16/2022 What I did well today: I did a lot of reading today. I was reading The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey (thanks to @Yan for the suggestion), and I love it! Has to be one of the most transformative books I’ve read so far, and I haven’t even finished it yet. What I could’ve done better: Maybe I could’ve been more focused at work, but traffic is so slow that there isn’t even much to focus on! Not a major concern. Thoughts/realizations: Learned this fromThe 7 Habits of Highly Effective People; living a principle-centered life rooted in a few primary core values is so essential, yet so uncommon nowadays. Especially in my generation, I feel like most people live a self-centered life gravitating around pleasure and instant gratification. I’ve lived my life that way for a long time, and it doesn’t satisfy me at all. On the flip side, I took some time today to determine my 5 most important core values, and wrote a personal mission statement revolving around them. I already have so much hope that this new approach to life will bring me a lot more joy and fulfillment. Once again, thank you @Yan for the recommendation, it’s been life-changing! Plans for the future + timeframe for achievement: Within 1 week: CompleteThe 7 Habits of Highly Effective People Within a month: Set up monthly payment plan for classes Within 6 months: Complete my first 10 credits More than 6 months: Earn my bachelor’s in accounting Edited December 18, 2022 by Paul A.
