Reading, Visualising, Planning and Writing

The following checklist is taken from The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People Handbook by Stephen Covey.

The answers you give to these questions can help you find the areas you need to work on in your life.

Let your conscience guide you as you work through this checklist. Being self-aware will provide an assurance that the renewal plan you come up with will be right for you.

I use a system to plan and organise my time and efforts.
