Create the Life You Want!

Is balancing work, life, and family a priority for you and how stay motivated? Susan M. Heathfield provides some insightful responses in this area. She recommends what is called Guided Thinking Exercises. Try these exercises to focus your career planning and life thinking – yes, you have to do the work to get to your goal.

  1. Write down your ten favorite activities, the ones without which your life would feel bereft. No career choice is suitable unless you get to do your favorite activities at least weekly, and preferably, daily.
  2. Write down the top five goals you want to accomplish in your life and career. (Think money, fame, impact, contribution and more.) Your selected career must enable you to reach these goals.
  3. List everything you’d like to do in your lifetime. These lists can run several hundred items. Your chosen career must allow the accomplishment of these dreams.
