I’ve been contemplating about what specific areas of personal growth that I want to focus my attention on. Other than health and mandated professional development in my workplace, here are some leadership qualities I want to work on in the next 6 months:

Area of Growth

Developing habits that promote productive creativity

I want to build habits that help push me to become creative. These include my morning habits and my bed-time habits.


I’ve always had a problem with cleanliness. I know that this is a problem and I will probably always struggle with it. Yet, I’ve improved. It’s been an uphill battle, but I’ve seen measurable changes in my own behavior and my own cleanliness. Yet, I am far from where I actually want to be.


I want to be a person who people can rely upon. The only way that can happen is if I am consistent with my words and actions. If I am dependable. If I regularly say, do, and write what I believe is important.

These are three key areas that I need to improve upon. It’s hard to open up and talk about my flaws publicly. Yet, I think that the problem in fixing these deficit areas is similar to cleaning a musty room. Sometimes, the first step is just to open up the windows and let some fresh air in.
