Where’s your life heading? Are you conscious about your choices or are you floating down the river of life. I love the water, but I recently jumped up on the river bank to do some reflections! I followed an advice from my coach. I did my personal strategy day!
Is Life Over At 40?
Earlier this year, I wrote a blog post, which became very popular. I asked – If life over at 40? A mid life crisis haven’t stressed me. Still, I have felt a need to view my life in a new perspective. My coach encourage me to take a day to align my choices with my life goals. It made my think about iconic Steve Jobs, who said:
I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’ And whenever the answer has been ‘No‘ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.
I postponed my day for months, but now it has happened. Over the next blog posts, I will share my experience. I can describe it like this. It felt like cleaning out an old closest called life!
And stay tuned, I will share all the tricks and tips on how you can do it!
A Sense Of Urgency!
I felt very prepared to go through with this day. I’m very conscious about my goals, plans and life. I have been going through my leadership style. I have done some changes in my life, when it comes to my daily life and how I manage my day.
The month before I went through with my day, I read the book No Mercy: Be Your Best with Mental Training by Erik Bertrand Larssen. He really hits a nerve – Imagine the day you die, what will you say to yourself? This mindset sets a perspective on life and gives you goosebumps.
You feel of sense of urgency!
I cleared a whole day. No one at home! Just me, myself and I. This was my agenda:
- Define my life values
- Define my life needs
- Evaluate all parts of my life anno 2016
- How do they match with my life values
- How do they match with my life needs
- What gives and what drains energy
- Describe my life 2020 and 2025
Break – a good work-out
- Write down my life goals
- Personal time
Five blog posts will follow. They will share tips and tricks for your personal strategy day! And I will share some of my conclusions.
I can only say – stay tuned!
I can only say – you should really do this! It unloaded tons from my shoulders!
Love from, Cecilia :*
