Self-Management Behavioral Contract

· First, select a goal: something that you would like to change about yourself. Perhaps you would like to stop smoking, or to control drinking, improve study habits, manage time better, or change eating or exercise habits. It is critical that your goal be measurable, attainable, positive, and significant to you.
· Next, change the goal into target behaviors. What specific behaviors do you want to increase or decrease?
· Third, choose a means of monitoring your progress, such as a chart or a behavioral diary.
· Finally, choosing a realistic time frame, write up a contract that states all of the above points and specifies both internal and external consequences for actions, such as short-term rewards for adhering to the contract and a long-term reward for meeting the goals.

Resilience has been related to great leaders who left indelible marks in the face of the world. Most great leaders have lost resilience and balance in their lives more than once hence gliding into imbalanced lives of depression. A well balanced life is more important than riches and stature. Most people will prefer a balanced life to riches and high position. Lack of resilience bears lack of balance which in turn turns one’s life upside down, inside out. A story of one strong leader is told. The leader, lost balance at some point in his life and what followed afterwards, was a disastrous and a miserable life. He totally lost focus and small things destabilized his ever stable composure.
