I mentioned these questions the other day, but I wanted to revisit them, because they apply not just to students and time management, but to everyone and every part of our lives. If you know who you are, where you are, and where you’re going, you’ll find a lot of clarity in life.
Who are you?
Have you ever stopped and thought about this? What are your interests? What are your priorities? What things or areas of your life are important to you?
Consider the following:
Health/wellness, exercise/gym, relationship with partner, personal growth and development, spirituality, religion, career development, studies, giving back/contribution to society, financial prosperity, savings, socialising/fun, friends, family, children, parents, entertainment, work, personal space, hobbies, sports, artistic expression, etc. Can you think of any additional areas? Please share them in the comments below.
Now choose your top eight or ten, and rank them in order, without much thought. Try to do the ranking as quickly as possible, without thinking. Take a moment to look over your list. Any surprises? Did this quick exercise help you see what things are important to you?
