Simplify for success
Many of us are overworked, tired and stuck in a day to day routine. When your life situation becomes chaotic and stressful, it’s time to simplify. I mean establishing what things are important and what needs to be done.
Prioritising fewer, more important tasks allows you to give your attention and focus to what is needed. It is likely that a small part of your ‘to-do list’ will reap the majority of your results. In fact, it’s possible as little as 20 % of your ‘to do list’ will lead to a whopping 80 % of your results!
This process of focusing your attention on the most important things will bring happiness and joy in your life. It reduces the stress and overwhelm of desperately trying to tick things off your ‘to-do list’ while frantically adding new things on.
Find out your values and purpose?
It is massively important to work out what your values are. What are the most important things that you value in your life? What do you want? The bigger projects that you need to prioritise have to be in line with your own personal values.
When you know what your values are then life becomes easier. It enhances the quality of your life which flows with greater ease as you are focused on what is important to you. It is by having a strong purpose, that emotional fuel can propel you forward to achieving better results. It’s the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
Without a clear purpose, it is difficult to achieve success. The minute challenges arise as they often do, it is very easy to give up and lose motivation. It is by having a clearly defined purpose, supported by your own personal values that success can be achieved.
Keeping a ‘Self-development reflective Journal’
Writing a ‘Self-development journal’ has massive value. Getting crystal clear on your values and purpose will reduce your stress levels. The journal is a way of regularly conditioning yourself into writing your own thoughts and ideas onto paper.
When you are learning valuable information, writing a journal allows you to reflect on your own experience of applying the content.
This Journaling component has a unique perspective on the material you are working on. It also improves your ability to remember what you have learned as it includes your own reflective thoughts and experiences.
