As the Easter break is approaching, it’s a great opportunity to take time to reflect on what is going on with our lives and how we want things to be different.
In February, I launched a six-week coaching programme to leading a healthier and more fulfilling life by getting more of what’s right for you done through clarity, structure and focus. My dedicated clients, home-based business owners and freelances, are seeing great results already and I’m super proud of their progress.
So, I thought I’d share with you some of the things that I go through with my clients that you may find useful to do for yourself.
The first thing is figuring out where your life is at right now. To do this you need to think about all the areas of your life that are important to you. List them all down. Then select eight of them that are currently the most important ones to you. Then you need to evaluate how happy/satisfied you are with each of these areas in your life. Use a scale of 0 to 10. Where 10 everything is absolutely perfect and just how you want it to be and 0 is you are really unhappy with how things are in this area of your life.
Here is a link to a video I did about this and you can also download your free copy of the Wheel of Priorities, which has more detailed instructions and a Wheel of Priorities that you can print out and draw on. Alternatively, use your artistic skills and just draw a circle and divide it into eight segments! 🙂
The next thing to realise is that we can’t spin all eight plates at the same time perfectly all of the time. Therefore, we need to determine which two or three plates are most important to us right now and then focus on them. It’s not about neglecting the others but it’s about accepting they can’t all be perfect.
Our priorities will evolve over time and that’s perfectly fine. So, that’s why reviewing your priorities is an important thing to do a couple of times a year or as your circumstances change.
For example, the top three priorities in my life right now are my health, my relationship with my husband and my coaching business. In that order! Without my mental and physical health being in a good state let’s face it everything else will be impacted. It’s not to say that my friendships aren’t important and I don’t put any effort into them but they are not in my top three like they were when I was in my twenties.
Let me know how you get on and what insights you’ve gained.
