For some reason, I’ve been in a funk lately. The feeling of not doing enough crept into my mind. What is it that has me feeling like I’m not living to my full potential? What is it that has me feeling like I’m not doing the work? As I began to revisit my goals, I noticed something. My lifestyle design was not aligned with my goals (in the order of importance).
Align Your Life
For an example, think about how you spend most of your free time and the most of your money (after bills). This will give you a clue about your lifestyle design. In my case, I’ve been spending an excessive amount of time working out at the gym and guess what? Health and fitness isn’t even in my top three goals. I’m not trying to become a body builder, fitness instructor or even trying to lose weight. Now……..I will say health and fitness is very important to me and does fall in my top five goals (not my top three).
If you want to write a book, then why are you spending all of your time painting? Maybe your goal is to become more productive, why are you spending most of your time on Netflix? So you want to become a makeup artist, why are you in sewing classes? How serious are you about accomplishing your goals?
Back on Track
Clarity is what you’ll find when revisiting your goals. We tend to fall off track, get distracted or even take a wrong turn in our journey. Now that I’ve reminded myself what is most important to me, the process begins when I start switching up my daily to-do list. Instead of working out 5-6 days a week, 3-4 days will have to suffice.
Is your lifestyle aligned with your goals? When was the last time you revisited your goals? Are you prioritizing your goals? How important are your goals?
