Today, I am using a management term ‘SWOT Analysis’ for Self improvement. Management is mostly define as ‘managing people’ but in this post i will be talking about ‘managing self’.
To make it simpler …. let’s know about SWOT.
SWOT stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats. The golden rule says…
Retain your Strengths
Work on your Weaknesses
Grab the Opportunities
and Overcome your Threats.
So friends! first thing u need to do is just pen down your SWOT. Now ….i will tell you how to analyse yourself. Strengths and weaknesses are internal, these are something which is under your control. A strength for someone can be the weakness of the other. One can use his/her strengths to overcome the weaknesses. Say… A short tempered person who is also a good painter can control his anger by using his painting skills.
On the other hand, opportunities and threats are external..you have no control over them …but they are same for a group of people. Say … in this scenario, schools are oraganising online classes. The children who are grabbing this oppurtunity to increase their knowledge are actually overcoming their threat of failure in exams.
