“Is what I’m doing today improving my life?”
Be it personal (physical health, mental health, personal finances, relationships), or work (solving problems, having control over your day, saying yes when you need to and saying no when necessary), this is the simple question to ask.
Have you written down what you plan to do today? Is it just a reactionary list, or a plan?
If it’s just a list, don’t fool yourself into thinking it’s improving your life. Because if you live every day as a reaction to what you have to do, then you’ll slowly undermine the ability to grow. Eventually, you become an order taker, reacting to both your customers and your bosses and never to yourself.
But if it’s a plan for growth, no matter how small, then you are improving your life.
So what are you doing today?
