We get so caught up in day to day living that sometimes we forget that we need to stop for a minute and take our pulse. To put it in business terms, have you looked at your “business plan for your life?” It does not have to be a lengthy process, just a quick assessment to make sure you are on track, still heading in the right direction and aren’t dragging any debris along with you.
What is cluttering my life (things, people, commitments)?
Who do I have relationships with that are no longer fulfilling?
Where could I be making better use of my money?
What do I find rewarding in my job or career?
How can I give back or contribute?
Why am I doing (or not doing) what I do?
That last is the most important question in my view. Many of us know what we want to do, how we want to behave, the kind of person we’d like to be, but we just can’t seem to do what we know needs to be done on a consistent basis. Ask yourself why. It’s a good question. Isn’t it?
