Create a life, not a list. More specifically for me, the learning is to create a business, not a J.O.B. (To be honest, I JUST learned this, like on August 21, 2019 to be exact, so I am including it in this list, but I’m still learning this one, still living out the learning. It’s changing how and what I do every day. I am so grateful for this one.)
Here’s the thing:
We are encouraged to make To-Do and Stop Doing lists, we are inspired to “Get Sh!#t Done,” and we spend time flipping through magazines and cutting out words and pictures for a vision board. I’m not against that, keep doing it if it helps.
What I am learning to do is to look at our life as a whole, seeing from a macro perspective if what my micro-actions are doing to lead me to my destination.
What this wisdom can mean for you:
create a life, not a to-do list, or just annual or quarterly goals. Are these things you’re doing getting you to a life that you will love?? What exactly would that life entail? Are these goals positioning you to experience the big values you want? Your big vision? Or just giving you something to do, to check off, to report to your boss or your accountability team/partner, without really looking at your life as a journey towards a destination.
