  • To demonstrate using a person-centred thinking tool in relation to one’s own life, we can use the “Working/Not Working” analysis. This tool helps to reflect on various aspects of life to identify what is currently effective and what needs improvement. Here’s how you might apply it:
  • Personal Example: Balancing Work and Personal Life
    • What is Working:
      • Flexible Working Hours: Being able to adjust work hours to accommodate personal commitments has helped maintain a better work-life balance.
      • Remote Work Options: The ability to work from home has reduced commuting time, increasing productivity and personal time.
      • Supportive Colleagues: Having a team that supports each other makes the work environment positive and less stressful.
      • Engaging in Hobbies: Allocating time each week to hobbies has improved mental health and overall happiness.
    • What is Not Working:
      • Workload Management: Sometimes, the workload is overwhelming, leading to extended working hours and encroaching on personal time.
      • Physical Activity: Struggling to find time for regular exercise, which impacts physical health and energy levels.
      • Quality Family Time: Not spending as much quality time with family as desired, often due to work commitments taking priority.
      • Personal Development: Limited time invested in personal development and learning new skills outside of work-related areas.
    • Actions to Improve What is Not Working:
      • Implement Strict Work Hours: Set and adhere to specific start and end times for work to prevent it from extending into personal time.
      • Schedule Regular Exercise: Block out time in the calendar for physical activity, treating it as non-negotiable as a work meeting.
      • Plan Quality Family Activities: Schedule regular family activities or outings to ensure quality time is spent together without work interruptions.
      • Dedicate Time for Learning: Allocate a specific time each week for personal development, exploring interests or skills unrelated to work.
  • Using the “Working/Not Working” tool in this manner allows for a structured reflection on personal circumstances, helping to identify areas for celebration and improvement. It facilitates a proactive approach to making positive changes in one’s life, ensuring a more balanced and fulfilling experience.
