Is it time for a change?

focus goals joy motivation Mar 26, 2022

How’s it going? No really… how is your life going at the moment? On a scale of 1-10, how much are you enjoying your life right now?

I don’t know about you, but I don’t ask myself this question nearly often enough. It’s not until I start dipping down into the 3-4 rating area that I think… oh wait, something’s wrong! Either I’m feeling stuck or I’m not motivated or I don’t know where to put my focus. Maybe I’m feeling like a failure because something didn’t work out or I’ve lost my sense of purpose or I’m just getting distracted. 

Each time, the exact reason might be different, but the feeling is always crappy. And it’s worse than it needs to be because I took so long to notice.

So how about you?

How motivated have you been lately to work on the things that matter to you? 1 to 10, what would you say?

What about your overall happiness? Where would that fall?

And how clear is your vision for 1-year-from-now Future You? Do you know where you’re going? 

Taking a minute to check in like this regularly can do so much to keep you from sliding into a pit of distraction or unhappiness or total lack of motivation. And once you recognize the problem, it’s time to make a change. Try one of these:

1. Start a new habit that will combat the feeling.
Distracted? Every time you sit down to do the thing, set a timer for 5 minutes and only work on the thing without checking anything else. (and for goodness sake, put down your phone!)

2. Do some journaling.
Feeling not-so-great overall, but you're not sure why? Sit down and write down all the reasons you can think of and see if a pattern emerges.

3. Take a class or a course that will help you overcome the challenge.
Feeling stuck or unclear about your future? Unlock Your 5-Star Future is opening soon and you can join the waitlist.
