GS Article 7


by Rajen Devadason

The cyclone derives its power from a calm centre. So does a person.

Norman Vincent Peale


I'm now in my 40s. It is conceivable that I may not have got to this age, if I hadn't made some radical changes in my career about a decade ago.

You see, even when I was in my mid-20s, my doctor identified a tendency toward high blood pressure. But every job I went into required more and more of me, thus causing my blood pressure to shoot up from work-related stress as well as snowballing sleep deprivation.

Does that sound familiar to you?

If so, you might want to consider using core goal-setting techniques to put in place a personal version of what is called business process management in the industrial and corporate arenas.

According to the free online encyclopedia Wikipedia:

"The term Business Process Management (or BPM) is a set of activities which organizations can perform to either optimize their business processes or adapt them to new organizational needs. As these activities are usually aided by software tools, the term BPM is synonymously used to refer to the software tools themselves."

While that definition is replete with jargon, if you take the time to look at it closely again, and substitute your own words for your life, your work or your family for the terms in that definition that refer to the 'organisation', you'll realise there is no reason why you can't set up a series of personal activities that optimise your own life's processes. Obviously, tools - both software and intellectual - can and probably should be used to help you in this quest.

In my life, the key eventual migration away from a stressful, hypertension-inducing, life in journalism and later in institutional investing as an equities analyst was achieved through a careful process of dream identification and goal-setting.

Over the years, I've been able to reshape my life into something that closely resembles my mental ideal. I'm not there yet, so I still work hard, but more and more I do so now on my own terms.

If you'd like to learn about what I've discovered along this long journey, you're welcome to do so in my ebooks on goal-setting and life planning.

So, make a decision today to put in place new processes that will inject a fresh level of calm control in your life. You don't need to use my books to do so. Just carry out the research required to help you identify ways to inject human-friendly variants of conventional business process management methods into your life.

Doing so wisely should grant you access to internal and eternal resources that will empower you to do far more than you've probably ever dared to dream.

Bottomline: Put in place personal process management initiatives like goal-setting and life planning to suppress any latent tendencies toward hypertension and perhaps even reduce already high blood pressure readings. (As with all such matters, please be smart about this and make sure you also consult a doctor if you already exhibit high BP numbers.)
