Do you often feel like time is slipping by and your goals are passing you by? Are you constantly dwelling on the past or planning for the future, but struggling to be present in the moment? It’s time to wake up and take control of your time and goals. One powerful technique to help you stay focused and present is to choose a theme for your life or a specific project.
Think of your life as a river, constantly flowing forward over the highs and lows of everyday experiences. To avoid dampening your aliveness and zoning out, you need to be present in the moment. Try slowing down and fully experiencing the present moment, paying attention to your surroundings, your sensations, and your emotions. Another simple yet effective technique is to be aware of your body, such as where your butt is, as a way to anchor yourself in the present.
Now, let’s apply this concept of being present to your goals and projects. Choose a theme that serves as a filter for your actions and decisions. For example, you could have a theme of “fun and inspired action” for your business or “action” for your job search. Each month, review your goals through the lens of your theme and prioritize those that align with it. Look for opportunities that match your theme and bring you joy and inspiration. Embrace a sense of exploration and be open to new possibilities that come your way.
By having a theme, you can stay focused and motivated, and make decisions that align with your goals. You’ll find yourself taking action with purpose and enthusiasm, just like my client who is on fire with his job search goals. It’s time for you to wake up, choose your theme, and unlock your focus to achieve your goals with renewed energy and intention. Don’t let time pass you by – be present, be focused, and be on fire!
