Women and Wealth: Evaluating Your Life in Three Major Areas – Are You Heading for Greatness?
Every year I evaluate myself in three major areas of my life:
- Business or Career, and
Self, looks at my inner and outer being. Everything from my weight, health and eating habits to my attitude, soul and peace of mind. I have three choices in these categories just like I had in grade school.
- Needs To Improve
If I’m doing “excellent,” I try to maintain that habit. If I’m “improving,” I try to do better. If I “need to improve,” I try to seek help to reach my goals in this particular area of my life.
Just like an employer evaluating their employees, my quest is to try to figure out if I’m investing my time, energy and resources in the right things in order to profit in the long run. I’m sure many people do not see themselves as the CEO (Chief Executive Officer) of their lives, but I beg to differ. Running your life is just like running a business and for people that realizes this, life could be a simpler road to travel.
Business or Career examines if I’m doing what I enjoy and making a living at it. Am I spending 40 hours or more creating and inventing something that makes me feel like a contributor or am I just making a quick buck to get by?
Relationships is at times a difficult area to deal with. Who are the people around me and are they adding value or taking away value from my life? In my role as daughter, sister, friend, what example am I showing them and is it a positive one?
These are just some of the ways that I personally evaluate myself and help my clients do the same. Everyone will have a different way of looking at things so start exactly where you are. As humans, we are forever evolving and making adjustments to who we are and where we want to be in life. I’m learning to just trust my instincts, relax and enjoy the journey.
We are explorers making changes and decisions about our current way of life. Making decisions, being rational and thinking critically are essential parts of our lives. That is actuality the role of a CEO.
He/She is continually making decisions to improve the bottom line of their company. They want to always profit from what they are putting out there in the world and if a particular department is not performing as expected, a correction has to take place.
Your life is just if not more important than any company out there. Evaluate your life’s categories and see if you are heading on the road to greatness. Ask yourself if you are being the best CEO for your life that you can be. Work on the areas that “need improving” and seek out the help you may need to get into a better position.
No one is perfect and so we all can use some guidance every now and then. Create your own life categories and remember to evaluate yourself at least once a year. -Good luck!
