Do you have time for self reflection?

There is a constant war being waged for your time. Work fights for your time, your family, friends, sales people, TV, radio and a endless list of warriors  – all hungry for your attention. With such a large battle going on, it can be hard to miss out on one soldier out of the legions. This one person is the most important key to your happiness. This one person will decide your fate. This one person is you.

Think about it, how much time do you give to speak with yourself? When is the last time you sat down and just thought about your life? How are you feeling today? What things have you learned today? How much progress have you made with your goals? What problems are you experiencing? How can you solve them? These are just a few questions that you can be asking yourself. A lot of times, people are just running on auto pilot – going with the flow.

It is important to treat yourself like another person. Pretend that you have a meeting with yourself everyday before bed. The point of this meeting is to evaluate your performance and happiness. Ask yourself questions, find problems and create solutions. At the very least, take some time just to recognize all of the great things you have done.

Pull out your day planner, and schedule an appointment for yourself tonight. Be there on time 🙂
