What matters to you?
Updated: Nov 7, 2019
Our lives are built up of moments. We want to cultivate the things that really matter in our lives, but what’s important to me might not be as important to you. So grab a pen and a piece of paper. Here is a little exercise you can do to be mindful of what matters to you.
1. Name the things in life that matter to you. Lets call them “rocks”.
a. Prioritize your rocks by writing a number in front of them. Number 1 being your priority, etc.
b. Grade your rocks by how you’re doing in that area. 1= Horrible to 10 = GREAT, by first defining what 10 looks like to you.
2. Write down things that don’t matter in your life.
3. Take a moment to review your life. If you use a calendar, take a look at it.
Where do you spend your time, energy and money?
4. Act on it!
a. Circle the rocks that deserve more attention.
b. Write down what steps will you take to strengthen those areas.
c. Choose to cultivate - nurture and help grow - the moments that matter to you!
Wherever you’re at in life. Start there! Grow where you are planted. Even if it’s just small adjustments, whatever you tend to will grow.
