Take Every Opportunity

Image
When is a good time to really buckdown and get laser focused on our goals? At More Life in My Day we recommend taking every opportunity to start that process! Immerse yourself into that dream and don't come back. :-)

Many times we are waiting for the right moment to make our move. So when is that ideal moment?

Any moment! That's right. Pick one and run with it. A few good ones are, your birthday, the new year, the first of the month, Monday, when I get home, and dare I say... RIGHT NOW? Yes!

Look, it's far too common that folks haven't started working on their dream because they just don't know how to start. Or they have started and are stuck on some point. It could be a prior commitment, work, family, school, etc. Well, let's just start here! Right in the mess. All things being equal, none of these things are going to go away. So then how do you move forward?

A New Year, A New Resolve Get help! Get a coach! It's the new year. Invest in yourself and get th…

Merry Christmas!

What's Better, Action or Intentions?

What is better? Action or intentions? It may be that both are equally important!

So, what gets results? Intentions or action on those intentions? We'll that's not too hard. Action, all things being equal, is what brings results. However, let's not discount the function of intentions and look at how they work together.

Let's keep this simple. The challenge is getting from intentions to the action. As professionals of our lives and work, if we show up, the job gets done. So how do we get past intentions?

Think of intentions as partners to our action. Intentions are good! The question becomes, "why can we not move from intentions to action?"

Is it possible we don't take our own intentions seriously enough? If so, let's ask, "how do I raise my awareness in my intentions?" Great question. Let's see what that means...

Where are you going?

Have you ever stopped for second and the question hit you, "where am I going in life?" If it hasn't it most certainly will at some point. We are made for a purpose and one of the most frustrating puzzles we'll ever solve is discovering where we were meant to go in life.

Making that discovery has become the great mystery of life for many people. Opportunities abound. Career fields are being created daily. There are more college programs, institutes, universities, certification, and... well you get the idea. You get it because you are living it. So where does one start... or should I say... "restart discovering my destination?"

It's Easy, It's Fun, It's Important How one will discover their purpose will vary from person to person. Yet, it's never going to happen if you don't spend time thinking about it. Worrying about it doesn't count! Design a few peaceful moments throughout the week and guard that time. Allow no exceptions.

Curiosity... How Can You Get It Back?

Image
Have you found that you are taking way too much for granted in life? Maybe you're overlooking the important things in life because your time and energy have been sapped and you just can't slow down the pace. There's an antidote!

I think, at a child's birth, if a mother could ask a fairy godmother
to endow it with the most useful gift, that gift should be curiosity.1
- Eleanor Roosevelt
Curiosity leads to discovery. Curiosity also replaces fear with healthy wonderment. Developing curiosity is a strategy to create a new perspective. A new perspective creates new opportunities.

So, design a strategy and document your results. Make it a fun competition. Find a friend who would like to develop their curiosity as well. Set a common goal and then see if you both can reach it by the end of the week.
