This week's newsletter focuses on self-understanding. Here are this week's chosen learning points:
The Four Tendencies: Everyone falls into one of four "tendencies", which determines how you respond to inner expectations (like a fitness goal) and outer expectations (like work deadlines). Understanding the tendencies will help you get more out of yourself and others. I highly suggest reading a short summary I wrote here. Perhaps the most important thing I learned is that 41% of the population needs outer accountability to meet inner goals.
The Big 5 Personality Traits: While there's an endless number of personality traits, there's five big categories represented by OCEAN: Openness, Conscientiousness, Extraversion, Agreeableness, and Neuroticism. To understand your personality better, you can take a free test here.
Quote I'm pondering: "One can have no greater or smaller mastery than mastery of oneself." -Leonardo Da Vinci
Here are this week's recommended actions:
Learn about your tendency and identify the tendencies of those around you.
