While practices are useful tool for helping a person to fulfill a great need in him/her (the need to work), the person can encounter problems while s/he copes with the demands of his/her practice (various goals and/or roles) along with observations that the person lacks motivation to adopt the practice, blindly follows the practice, or worries on how to manage and make his/her practice work. By reason of, s/he knows that it requires purpose, adequate information about how to adapt the practice, and hard work – the pressures of the job – at maintaining an appropriate work/life balance.
I believe The above problems will create NOT better results. Necessarily, the person must learn and understand the practice in part by fluency with it and in part by direct experiences, sound investigative methods, and through his critical discernment and reasoning. Think that person will need to have a better look of all his skills sets to manage his/her practice, self, emotions, and etc. Can s/he cope with the demands of his/her practice?
Think the above question can be answered by a framework (self-assessment and improvement plan) that could empower the person to cope with the demands of his/her practice. By adopting the framework, self-assessment will allow the person to discern clearly his strengths and areas in which improvement can be made.
Moreover, framework adoption is a strategy for developing, achieving, and improving the necessary areas of any effort (practice) with the assumption that the locust of control is in the person.
Talking about self-assessment, it is a comprehensive, systematic, and regular review of a person’s activities. It can help the person to:
* identify practice, develop a case for change, create readiness for action, and track performance;
* codify or write-down transmit tacit knowledge-the know-how; and
* work more effectively by applying it rigorously.
