Structure and Flexibility In My Personal Life
There are a few different ways that I add structure and flexibility into my daily habits. The daily outline I made up for myself has ample downtime as well. Time for work, socializing, my relationships, and fun are all considered. It is not a “schedule.” This outline allows me to be more open to changes in my daily life.
I also use a certain vocabulary with myself to stay on track of progress. For example, I have an eating plan rather than a diet. I use a spending plan instead of a budget. The path to retirement is a journey, not a plan. My career is a path, rather than a ladder. My mindset is that of a student, always growing and learning. Practicing mindfulness meditation rather than trying to not think or stop thoughts, is how I meditate.
INTENTIONALITY & CORE VALUES
The power of intentionality, is nothing short of amazing. In my opinion it is the key to happiness. Live an intentional life focused on your core values & beliefs and be happy.
Almost anything can be seen as negative, an obstacle, nothing ever going according to plan. This line of thinking can lead to a vicious spiral of negativity. A surefire way to remain in a cycle of unhappiness, and unfulfillment. There is always something in life to be grateful and always something to be sad about. Mindset is a powerful control.
