7 P’s Personal Performance Process
Journaling questions catch your blind spots, keep you on track and improve your habits. Become more focused, clear, creative, purposeful, aware and balanced.
There is magic in taking time to ask yourself the right questions that will pop out the right answers for you. At least monthly, if not weekly, spend about an hour and answer all of these questions. Be brutally honest with yourself. Once you have answered the questions, create a list of action steps for your next week or month. Do this process regularly and watch your life change.
Patterns, processes, procrastination, habits:
Where can I be more efficient in my life?

What stresses me?
For what problems must I ask for solutions
Perceptions and perspectives of myself and others:
What are the needs/desires of my boss or partner or family?
What is God’s agenda for me?
What contacts or friends do I want to develop more?
What negative or limiting thoughts keep jumping into my mind?
What key choices am I ready to make

Principles and values:

Purpose, potential, passion, power, possibilities, path:
What are my deepest heart-felt desires, dreams and visions?
Where are my life purpose and goals unclear?

Peace of mind, play, pleasure, pamper:
When do I feel greatest happiness in my life?
What can I do to have more fun in all areas of my life?
How can I get more stillness, solitude and peace in my life
When you have completed the answers and the resulting action steps, ask yourself, “What am I missing? Is there anything else?” Use questions often. The subconscious mind is always answering. We must only practice asking and then listening.
