Hello hello, long time no nothing…
I took a rather long break from writing this blog, but I feel that this was needed. I still kept writing, because I came up with a new project which is writing a book about strengths. I am still in the research phase, but I will write more about it as I progress.
My return to writing blog articles is motivated by a small experiment, I want to invite you as a reader to. This is a 7-day virtual self-development conference. In the past, I facilitated during several self-development conferences and also headed one myself. I always find it amazing to see how people change over the course of just one week.
There are a few goals this conference aims to achieve:
- to better understand yourself and why you behave the way you do
- to figure out what you are good at
- to shed light on what you like to do and where you see meaning
- to come up with an action plan for a goal you set yourself
- to build up confidence and motivation going forward
How will it look like?
Over the next seven days, starting tomorrow, I will write one article which covers a certain topic. Each day (blog article) will build on top of the previous one, so it makes sense to start with day one. I invite you to find a friend or family member to do the exercises I give; however, I am going to write them in a way that you can also do them on your own.
I also invite you to use this blog as a platform to ask questions and share your insights. I am always impressed and awed what insights people have by doing those exercises and going through a deep self-reflection process and your comment(s) will help me to better understand myself and others, too. So, thank you in advance =).
In the following, you can see the topics of each day:
Day 1: Know yourself
Day 2: Values
Day 3: Strengths
Day 4: Passion
Day 5: Purpose
Day 6: Planning
Day 7: Confidence & Motivation
That’s it for today. I am looking forward to picking up writing tis blog again, and I am curious how this little experiment will play out.
Have a wonderful day and take care, Stephan
