We’re all just stumbling with our two left feet and maintain our balance in life, and while keeping a to-do list may seem like a task reserved only for business savvy tycoons, those little tabs can work wonders in making time for some fun in your life too. With a 101 traced from the lifestyle of the embodiment of life coach himself, here are our tips on how to survive each day.
Set Daily Goals
The best thing you can do for yourself is to set daily goals you know you can achieve at the end of the day. While having bigger goals is great to daydream about, people may have the tendency to get lost along the way if you don’t plan out the space properly to reach your end-goal. Don’t forget to look at the smaller pieces that complete the bigger picture and take it step-by-step.
Know Your Priorities
Essentially, you can do whatever you want as long as you keep your priorities in check. This just helps you to use your time wisely and also nudge you back to the reality of how you really spend your time. In 24 hours a day, there’s definitely enough time for your work, hobbies and social needs be met. Of course, there’s always one or two things you would need to sacrifice to fit it all together – it’s just up to you what you can handle to lose. Some say that sleep is for the weak, but some handle sleep as if it’s a professional sport. You choose.
Keep A Schedule
While spontaneity used to be the rave last year, it’s all about actually making things happen now and in the long run this 2017. Our manic pixie in us might be saying that you shouldn’t let a watch tell you what to do, but outside the borders of fiction, keeping a schedule can do wonders and help you do more things you actually want to do.
All these things written on paper are just efforts in trying to actually live our life to the fullest – think of your boss keeping their ROI in mind and making the most out of your time. You’re the boss of your own life and you have to make sure you’re investing in something worthwhile, but there’s only so much we can control. Life is a mess and it shouldn’t be a bad thing – when things don’t go as planned, there’s always room to adjust. That, or you can just drink to it with your friends.
