Dear Becca Diaries Friends (BeDaFs),

Happy New Month. How well did your weekend treat you? I hope it was as fulfilling as mine.

Last Friday, I decided to pick up Stephen Covey’s “7 Habits of Highly Effective People”, which I have been reading for a while now. You should know this if you have been following my FaceBook Page (@Beccadiaries).

Before then, I had realized that some books are not meant to be read and dropped. You are meant to possess them and put into action the wealth therein.

One of the vital points raised in the book by the author, Stephen R. Covey, is the need to have a personal mission statement, and some sort of goal planner. I knew I needed to fix this but I got carried away doing many other important things. However, on Friday, I said “not again”.

To be honest, it was such a beautiful time crafting my personal mission statement; I became even more aware of the things I want to become and how I would love others to see me. My self-concept, if I may, was greatly improved. I’d encourage every lover of self and personal/professional development to do that exercise.

I will be creating a template for you all but this won’t be for free.

Kindly let me know if this is something you’d love to have and how much you are willing to pay for the following items.

  1. A personal mission statement template (to include roles teaser).
  2. A goal planner template (to include long, intermediate and short term goals).
  3. A monthly activity planner.
  4. A weekly activity planner.
  5. Recommended Apps to assist you achieve maximum result.
  6. A video explaining how to use the templates.

Templates will be both printable and downloadable (PDF and Excel formats).

Book for the Month of August 2022.

Last month, we planned to read ‘Why Nations Fail’ by Daron A & James R, but somehow, the village people who successfully moved to town hindered us from following through. Don’t ask me how I knew you didn’t read it, please.

Anyways, here is the book for the month of August, we have to read it whether the civilized villagers like it or not. Find the reading plan attached.

Join me on Facebook everyday.

Send a message on WhatsApp if you need a copy of the book, want to join my Book Club or need to make an enquiry generally.

Till Next Week, Keep being intentional.

With love, Becca.
