A fulfilling life is not an aspiration, but an everyday habit
Building habits takes time but you can start with these small things:
Get clear about your priorities.
Who do you most want to be? What do you want your life to be like? These questions can be tough and can be an evolving process, but when you are clear about what matters most to you, you can start eliminating the activities that don’t align with what matters most.
Write out a schedule for your day.
When you tell your time where to go, you can decrease the time spent on time-sucking, empty activities. Being intentional with your time can help you achieve your career and personal goals.
Decrease the noise.
We are bombarded every day by thousands of distractions that threaten to take our time away from what matters most. Very simple (yet not always easy) strategies such as shutting off our phones, or only checking email at set times, can help us be more present, productive, and fulfilled.
Achieving high levels of career success while having a satisfying personal life is definitely possible. I’ve done it, and so can you.
