07. Weekend reflection - Overview and clear direction

Weekend: Overview and direction
This is a reflection for your weekend and days off, when you want to make a deeper reflection about your life and situation. 
(The questions start 2.31 minutes into the audio file.)
Every day you get more time. You do that all your life. Your life is like a never-ending source that keeps sending more time to you.
This is great. Yet, the problem with time is that you can't save it. If you have a lot of money, you can put it in the bank and withdraw it again later in life when you think it is more appropriate. For example, when you are about to retire, or when the children have moved away from home, or when you have reached the big workload that lies ahead of you and you THEN get more time. 
Well, maybe that workload will never go away.
You cannot put the time in the bank and withdraw it later. You use it every minute - whether you like it or not. If you now measure your time in terms of value instead of your watch, then focus change to “How do I get as much value as possible into my everyday life?”.
Urgent things scream. Important things whisper.
It's easy to get carried away by a bunch of deadlines screaming for your attention. But it can be difficult to stay focused and shut out the noise in order to listen to what is important. And that's exactly why it's good to turn on the high beam and reflect on your life when you have time off.
Take this reflection with you on a walk or a run. Take it into the garden for gardening. Sit down and look out the window. Or do something completely different where you feel good.
Think about each question and take your time when you want to reflect further on an answer. Repeat this reflection as often as possible and you will find that it becomes easier to answer the questions.
If your thoughts wander and you start thinking about some important things in your life, just let go of this reflection and continue on your own new track. The reflection sets something in motion - you are responsible for your thoughts and thought patterns.
Here are the questions for your reflection:
  • Where are you going in your life?
  • What is important to you in your everyday life?
  • What would you like to achieve?

  • What makes you happy? – Here, you are welcome to smile a little! How does it feel?
  • Where would you like to be in one year?
  • If you imagine your life in a year's time, and you imagine that it is, like you want it to be - what must have happened in the meantime from today in order for you to have reached your goal?

  • What are you prepared to do differently from today?
  • What small change do you want to make in your life starting tomorrow?
  • How will you remind yourself to do it?
  • Feel free to put a reminder in your calendar to remember this change. And please do it now.

  • Who would you like to spend more time with?
  • What would you like to do more of in your everyday life that is good for you?
  • What are you willing to let go of - to create time for yourself and people you care about?
  • When one day you approach the end of your life, what would you like to remember and be remembered for?
Small changes in your everyday life have a great impact on the long run, if you make the small changes into your habits.
And start by one small change. That’s enough.
I wish you a good day with a good reflection.
