Number One Secret to Personal Betterment

So what is the secret to Personal Betterment?

Observation.

You might say when you become more knowledgeable, more competent, and more skillful then you consider yourself better than who you were.

That’s not untrue but the fundamental question is, how do you become more knowledgeable, more competent and more skillful at what you do?

Observation followed by actions.

“To acquire knowledge, one must study; but to acquire wisdom, one must observe.”  ~ Marilyn Vos Savant

When it comes to personal betterment, most of the times, the credit is stolen by actions but observation has its own place.

Observation takes us outside our own heads. It provides us an opportunity to see things from a different perspective. It establishes the space of creation.

Observation takes us beyond what we already know. Without it we are no better. Observation leads to clarity.

Observation contributes a lot in continuous learning. Habit of continuous learning is very essential to personal betterment.

We observe one context, and apply what we have observed in the other. That’s how we expand our perspectives and provide a gateway for others also to learn new things, again by observation.

When we expand our perspective and help others to do that, we get better.

Observation is the catalyst for personal betterment, betterment of your team and betterment of your tribes.

Observation establishes the premise of personal leadership.

Effective personal leadership is the key to personal betterment. To lead oneself and keep moving ahead on the unknown path, one needs the fuel called observation.

It is not important what you hear; it is important what you observe.

You think what you observe. You become what you think.

Work on making your observation better and lead the path of personal betterment.
