When’s the last time you’ve taken inventory of your life? I think it’s really important to pause and reflect and make sure you are on the right path. If things are great, then you can celebrate and make new life goals. If things aren’t as great, then it might be time to make a few changes.
No matter what the outcome is, I’m here for help you grow! Below are three ways that you can take inventory of your life:
- Make a list of everything /everyone that makes you happy
When life gets hard, it’s easy to focus on the negativity. However, one way to overcome that is to reflect on the positive. You are alive, you are breathing and you are uniquely created for a purpose. Get into the consistent habit of celebrating the positive and watch your mindset change!
- Make a list of your goals
Goal setting will help you in many ways. They can help increase your productivity and keep you in line when things get hectic around you. Make your list of SMART (specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and time-based) goals and post them where you can see them daily! This might be at your desk, on your bathroom mirror or on your phone. Be intentional.
- Seek honest feedback from the people around you
Do you really want to know how you’re doing? Ask the people around you. Make a list of the top 5 people in your life that you interact with daily. Schedule some uninterrupted time with them and ask for honest feedback. Ideally, this should be done in person but phone calls, video chats and emails are also okay.
