If you don’t know what you want, how do you know what to do next?

At the beginning of last year I stumbled on the book  “Organisation for the Creative Person” by Dorothy Lehmkuhl and Dolores Cotter lamping.

At that time I was feeling anxious and uncertain about what to do with my life, and my life was very thinly spread across many activities.

I found the book to be tremendously helpful.  Being unsure about what you want makes it difficult to say “No” to opportunities, just in case you are making the wrong decision!

“If you don’t know what you want, how do you know what to do next?” 

Some people are very clear on what they want in life.  A truly successful life includes ethics, family and community.  A deep feeling of satisfaction and contentment equals success.

A useful exercise could be to:

  • Visualise how your home, office or studio would look
  • Think about when you die, what will you have wanted to accomplish
There are many opportunities out there.  But by carrying out these exercises I have been able to think about making sure all the aspects that are important to me are incorporated in my schedule.  If they are not included, they will not happen! Whether that be your own personal health and fitness or your desire to help others in some voluntary capacity.
I was delighted to tick of the majority of my 2010 goals.  This year 2011, as life circumstances yet again change.  I am drawn to the thinking of the FlyLady in helping to keep on top of things at home, but also applying the principles to other aspects of life, so that I can incorporate the things that are important to me in life without burning out.
