Yesterday, I talked about re-doing the 5 steps I laid out in Sunday’s post that will help me tweak my goals for 2016.

 

Two things I’ve discovered:

 

  1. What I want as a result of reviewing my goals: I want a life that’s so custom fit to me that I am the only one to whom it can belong.

 

  1. I know that sounds really silly on the surface because it’s my life and of course I’m going to live it to suit me! Maybe it’s just me, thought, but I’ve noticed small areas of my life where I think I crafted it for myself but yet they’re very subtly skewed to take into account close friends’ and family’s opinions, what’s culturally acceptable, and what’s “age appropriate”.

Ack!

I thought I left that junk on the school playground years ago!

Oh well. Better to recognize it now than when my life is all said and done; then it’s way too late to do anything about it!

I’m still thinking through the categories of goals and adding this discovery to the mix. When I think of categories and sub-categories I’m running them by the question:  is this something I think is important and crucial to a good life or is it what others’ are telling me I should think is important?

How about you–how are you doing? What interesting things have you discovered?  Let me know in the comments section below!

  1. Really really good insight. A common invisible trap we all fall into. Similar insight that came to me yesterday is standing up for my own decisions that I’ve made in my life, not comparing them to decisions others have made. Yes, this is my life and I get to do it my way!

  2. I’ve been surfing on-line greater than 3 hours today, yet I by no means
    found any interesting article like yours. It is beautiful
    worth sufficient for me. In my view, if all website
    owners and bloggers made just right content material as you probably did,
    the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.

      Thank you very much for your kind comment. I appreciate it very much.
      I know what it’s like to surf through blogs, articles, and other information for hours before finding something that helps. I’m glad my blog gave you information that you needed!
      Please feel free to look through others of my posts. Let me know if you have any questions, I’ll be glad to try to help. Even if I may not have an answer that works for you, I’ll try my best to point you toward other resources that I’ve found helpful that may in turn help you.
