This week Search Inside Yourself Leadership Institute posts its third video in the SIY curriculum, SIY 103-1. If you’d like to catch up on the course so far you can view SIY 101 and SIY 102 for a more complete vision of how mindful practices can help you achieve productivity, happiness and success in business and at home.

In the SIY 103-1 video, Meng discusses the importance of self-assessment. What does self-assessment do for you? An accurate assessment of your skills and weaknesses can help you improve your productivity, happiness and effectiveness at work and at home.

How? Once you accurately identify your negative thoughts and behaviors you can begin to use your mindful practices to eliminate them. If you find you frequently check your email when you feel under pressure at work, try taking a mindful minute.

Focus on your breathing. Block out all impulses to check that email or let stress overwhelm you. Once you’re done, start working again. When you feel the impulse to check your email, acknowledge your impulse and refocus your attention. You’ll be amazed how much more you accomplish in the office.

Would you like more tips on self-assessment and confidence building? Watch the video and let us know what you thought!
