Where am I? Top 3 Areas to Improve

It’s time to take a look at your Wheel of Life once again. If it’s been a couple of months since you filled out yours, download a fresh Wheel of Life and re-assess things. Remember, life changes, so it can be very useful to do this exercise a few times a year. Next, re-assess your priorities. Again, if it’s been a while, do this exercise all over again. Life changes (I will never tire of saying that), and our priorities change.

The “Where am I?” question is all about where you are in your life, at this time, in this present moment. That means that your answers to “Where am I?” will change on a regular basis…even from day to day. That doesn’t mean you have to do the “Where am I?” exercises on a daily basis, however it can be helpful to do them once a month or every few months. You’ll be able to feel what frequency is right for you.

The Wheel of Life looks at very important aspects of life: career, finance, personal growth, health/wellness, family, spirituality/religion, social life, attitude, self expression, etc. You choose which eight areas will go on your wheel of life. The priorities exercise will help you get clear on which of these eight areas are most important to you. The next step is to focus on the top three areas.

In the example I shared in a previous post, the person ranked spirituality/religion, personal grown, and family as their top three priorities. Highlight your top three priorities on your Wheel of Life and take some time to reflect.

Look at how you ranked these three areas on your Wheel of Life. How are these top three areas ranked on a scale of 1 to 10?

How do you feel about these rankings? Do these numbers make you feel frustrated, uncomfortable, depressed, satisfied, unfulfilled, content? Note what feelings are stirred up by looking at how you rated each of these top three areas. Write them down, as it may help you clarify your sensations.

Assuming that your rankings were below a 10 in each area, how would you like each area to be ranked? A 10? Something else? What changes you could make in your life to improve these rankings? Create a separate list for each of these top three areas, and write down all of the things you could do differently in your life that might improve your ranking. Keep writing until you can’t think of anything more.

Take a break from your list, and come back to it later: either later on in the day or on another day. Ask yourself what ELSE could you do to improve each of these three areas of your life. Expand on your list. If you find it difficult to think of anything more, challenge yourself to add three more things to each of the three lists.

Now read through these three lists. Decide which of these life-changing actions you will actually take. Set yourself a deadline for completing each one…then get started!

10 Easy Steps to Improve Time Management and Reduce Stress

10 Easy Steps to Improve Time Management and Reduce StressStruggling with time management? You don’t have to. Review these ten easy steps to improve time management and once you’ve applied them, you should experience a significant reduction in stress. You’ll also be one step ahead on the path to personal and professional excellence!

1. Set goals

Set goals, both at work and at home, to determine exactly what it is that you want to achieve. You will use these goals later to help prioritise and decide what tasks and activities you should work on, and in which order.

2. Plan

One of the most important steps to improving both personal and professional time management is planning.

When planning your schedule, be realistic: what can you really achieve with each time slot during your day? Be sure not to over-commit yourself to others, which will cause unnecessary stress. There is a limit to what you can get done each day. Use your goals and priorities to ensure you have enough time for the things you absolutely must accomplish during each week.

Don’t forget to leave time each day to handle the unexpected. Things come up, and your schedule must be flexible enough to handle changes without causing additional stress.

How are you doing with your New Year’s resolutions?

Life is a path, and the only way to go down it is by taking one step at a time.

We’re nearing the end of January…how are you doing with your New Year’s resolutions?

We all know what a New Year’s resolution is: a commitment that a person makes to work toward a personal goal, project, or lifestyle change throughout the year. New Year’s resolutions can work toward improving attitudes, habits, health, finances, career, education… pretty much anything that’s related to personal or professional development.

A 2007 survey conducted by the British psychologist Richard Wiseman showed that 88% of all resolutions end in failure. Why is this? It seems that the part of the brain which is largely responsible for willpower is also that part that takes care of keeping us focused, managing short-term memory, and working out abstract problems. Adding a long list of additional tasks to its current responsibilities may be asking a bit too much.

A more effective way of going about things might be to take resolutions and goals little by little. Life is a path, and the only way to go down it is by taking one step at a time. Rather than overwhelming yourself with a long list of things you want to accomplish without setting priorities or dates for each one, you might want to take that list and prioritise it.

Welcome!

Hi there and welcome to this blog!

I’m Holly Worton, and I’m passionate about helping people achieve their personal and professional best. After years of owning my own company, I’ve realised that my purpose in life is to help people achieve their highest potential and live the best life for them. I am dedicated to helping people grow, both personally and professionally.

I believe in making clear intentions and goals as to what I want in life, and in applying the dedication, attention, and patience needed to achieve them. I also believe that life is a path, not an end, and in making the entire journey as spectacular as possible.

The two things I love doing the most are helping people and writing. So this blog will give me the chance to do both! I’m also available for one on one coaching sessions, both in person and via Skype. If you have any additional questions, check out the FAQ or feel free to contact me directly.

My intention is to help you get the absolute best out of your life. Personal and professional excellence  is easy. Sometimes we all need a little help, and that’s what I’m here for.

Thanks for reading. Stay tuned for regular posts that can help you change your life!
