Managing and Improving the Self

Considering, Planning and Organizing Ahead



Lecture Presentation


Managing and improving the self, to be effective, efficient, positive and constructive in everything we do and we engage in. Considering, planning and organizing ahead, from the ground up and from the inside out. Establishing and maintaining the necessary internal mental conditions, before engaging and dealing with external conditions, with others and the world around us. Considering, planning and organizing ahead, clearly, in detail and depth whatever we do and we engage in. Dealing with conditions, demands and challenges, problems and difficulties, change and changing conditions, plans, goals and objectives, jobs and tasks, in business, government, public administration, public service, in public or personal life. Establishing mental order and stability, clarity of mind and understanding, a sense of certainty, security and confidence about issues and conditions, plans, goals and objectives, jobs and tasks, details, specifics, requirements and steps, before acting.

Establishing the necessary internal mental conditions. Developing, exercising and practicing the necessary knowledge, understanding and mental faculties. Developing one's natural mental powers and abilities, translating them into the necessary mental skills and practices, and engaging in the required mental work and effort. Engaging in a process of continuous, life-long conceptual and mental self-development and growth. Dealing with, responding and adjusting to change, changing conditions, demands and challenges, in real time, when they take place and when they are experienced. Dealing with them when only a minimum in mental work, effort and adjustment are required, and before they develop into larger problems and difficulties, which we can no longer deal with alone. Constantly, in light of change and changing conditions, reconsidering, updating, correcting, expanding and improving the knowledge, understanding and mental faculties, mental powers and abilities, mental skills and practices we develop, on which we rely, how we develop and use them. The choices and decisions we make, and how we make them, the aims, goals and objectives we pursue, and how we define them, the mental behaviour and actions, mental work and effort in which we engage, and how we consider, plan, organize and manage them.
