Putting You Back into Your Life

Ever get so caught up in doing that you aren’t sure why you are doing what you are doing? I find myself often going round and round with all the things I have to do and I get so overwhelmed, I just start doing whatever so I can check it off my list.

It’s been so long since I sat down and created my master plan for what I wanted to accomplish at work, in my personal life, and in regards to my health that. The cost of that is all this running around doing what I’m doing and not being really sure if it’s accomplishing the big things I dream for myself.

I keep telling myself, I’ll get to it eventually. Well, it’s eventually. There’s no time like the present.

So here’s what I’m going to do:

  1. Map out the key areas of my life (my roles as Stephen Covey puts it)
  2. Imagine the ideal whether it be how my relationships are, what big accomplishments I’d like to say I did at work, or how my body looks and feels
  3. Determine what steps (large goals) I need to set to move me toward this ideal vision
  4. Create one task for each of my key areas that I need to do each day to get me towards that vision. For example, if I know I want my body to be a fit, strong, healthy 120 lbs, what do I need to do each day to get there? I’ll start by committing 30 minutes five times per week towards exercise along with drinking 8 glasses of water each day. The second week, I’ll add eating one serving of fruit and one serving of veggies each day.

I am putting ME in charge of my life instead of running around not knowing if all the running (or doing) I am doing is getting me to where I want to go.

Think about whether you are doing the same thing. Are you putting those all important things first? Or are you running around letting the day and the demands of others take precedence? Let’s commit together to being more thoughtful about how we spend our time. Let’s not waste the precious gift of time we’ve been given. Just like life, once it’s gone… it’s gone.

Remember, I am cheering you on and pushing along right beside you while we both create the better life and the better world we dream of!

To your never-ending success!
