How’s life going these days, my friend? Let me guess, it’s busy. I’m with you on this one. We live in a go-go-go culture, where we pack our schedules full of activities and tasks. It’s as though being “busy” is seen as a positive marker for your success. Yet I’ve found that being busy does not specifically equate to being productive. Or rewarding, for that matter. Oh, if you’re busy, it must mean you’re working hard. You and I both know this is a bunch of a hullabaloo poppy cock. In fact, I often find being “busy” is just straight up draining, both emotionally and physically. That is, unless I pair my busy-body-ness with focus, inspiration and motivation. I mean, doesn’t each day deserve to feel rewarding as opposed to draining? Don’t we deserve to make the most out of each day? Don’t we deserve to feel proud at the end of the day? I love being able to say, I made the most out of my day and it was freakin’ awesome. Mind you, this doesn’t mean the events of the day were specifically awesome. It was my approach and attitude towards these events that make the day awesome.
I created this Daily Purpose worksheet because I needed to find some pep in my own step. When I need extra inspiration, focus and motivation to take action, I take myself through these questions. I write down my answers and then say each one aloud. Saying them aloud makes them real! Print this out or write the questions down in your journal. When you feel ready, use your Weekly Purpose Guide (found at the end of the worksheet), keeping it handy in an easy to see spot like your fridge, in your planner or by your computer.
Now let’s go and make the most out of today. Because you are one-of-a-kind and you deserve a one-of-a-kind day. Yay!
