Does the ‘G’ word impact your decisions?
As a mum, wife, leader, daughter, sister and more… often the ‘G’ word rears it’s ugly head.
You can feel like you are torn in a million different directions and like everyone needs a piece of you.
Often Guilt can impact our decisions around what we say yes to.
Unfortunately this often results in us overloading ourselves or sacrificing the things that are important to us.
To avoid relentless guilt, overloading or disappointment we need to have strategic ways to manage our activities.
I have a list of goals that I am either working towards or actively trying to live.
I think it’s important to remember that goals are not all about a distant dream in the future, they are all about how you live each day in order to reach that end point.
One of my goals is to be available for my kids when they need me. That means picking them up from school, helping with homework and taking them to after school activities. (This means something different for everyone).
I also have goals around developing new courses and business strategies like the competition we are about to launch where you can win one on one coaching with me.
I am clear on my goals and have consciously created a lifestyle that supports me achieving those goals.
It wasn’t something that I woke up one day and it just happened.
It took work.
And trying different things.
Asking for and accepting support and guidance.
But now I can be comfortable each day that the things I choose to do support me achieving my goals.
I’m not immune to the guilt but I know when I go away for business and leave the kids it’s because I’m growing my business in part to create a great and interesting life for them.
And to set an example that they can do anything they desire and achieve great things.
And so I can be part of leaving this planet a better place for them.
But I am not fighting guilt with each decision I make about where I spend my time.
I’m certain that I’m choosing the right things.
So be clear on your goals.
And choose where you spend your time.
P.S. As part of the online course work available to you as part of the Inner Circle we go deep on what you want and how you want your life to be. This is one of the foundations of mastering your time as it becomes an anchor in deciding what to do and what not to do.
We go even further. We make sure the path to those goals is strategic and doable.
Nothing worse than having a goal and then getting to your target date only to be disappointed by not getting it done.
