What is Self-Improvement? - Deepstash

What is Self-Improvement?

  • Forget About Setting Goals. Focus on This Instead : For most of us, the path to self-improvement starts by setting a specific and actionable goal.

Self-Improvement And Self-Discovery Work Together

We live between rigidity and malleability. It means that both self-discovery and self-improvement matter.

  • Self-discovery matters because the goals you set, and the life philosophy you hold, needs to be informed by the parts of yourself that tend to be fixed.

Self-awareness and introspection

Self-awareness and introspection

Self-awareness = awareness of your thoughts. And when you’re self-aware, you automatically learn more about who you are—which is called self-knowledge. But it all starts with being aware. No awareness = No knowledge.
