When planning our next day, week, month, year…whatever period you choose, do you fill the plan with the important stuff first and then fit work in or do you fill it with work and hope to fit the things that really matter in our lives in?
Amazing how many things are the wrong way round in life. Literally, no one ends their journey wishing they’d found more time to work more.
The choice is ours to make.
When we get to planning our lives and setting goals we are focused on work and money thanks to the conditioning of parents, school, government and employers.
This is in the belief if we work hard, get promoted, earn more money eventually we’ll have enough money to afford the lifestyle we want and become happy.
Plan to live a life based around what really matters, like friends, family, learning, adventure, love, kindness, sharing, giving without conditions, so things that enrich us and really matter.
Sure there is a need to work and earn money, but the happier, more mindful, living in the present moment we are, with great relationships, life adventures and spiritually good things the better our life will be and of course our work.
No one will reach the end of their journeys and say ‘I wish I had worked harder’.
Spend some time planning to live and then enjoy every moment that you are living.
