We all tend to be like frogs in boiling water. Our life keeps getting more uncomfortable and less satisfying, but it happens so gradually that we don’t think about it much. Maybe there is just a thing or two seriously out of whack and you’re on auto-pilot in a few other areas.
But why wait until the water is boiling before you realize you’re in trouble?
It’s the end of the year, and this is a perfect time to take stock of where you are and where you really want to be this time next year. Because you have to know where you’re starting before you can accurately plan where to go. For instance, you think you have a pretty good social network. You have friends. You know people. But when you stop and think about it, maybe you need to invest in a few of those relationships and build a better support system.
Or, if we use the theme of 12 Steps to a Healthier You Journey, then we weigh (haha – play on words) our intentions against our actions and discover where we actually stand in our health journey.
Everyone needs to do this. Not every once in a while, but every year.
Sailors pay close attention during a voyage to the wind, the current, and weather patterns. All these influences affect a ship’s course and are cause for correction.
Our life is no different. Navigating life takes constant care and commitment to making the right decisions.
The LifeScore Assessment for Michael Hyatt’s Best Year Ever charts ten separate areas in which our lives can be scored. The assessment asks thought-provoking questions to gauge such things as the state of your marriage, the stability of your finances, and the vibrancy of your spiritual life.
I took the assessment today, and my score is a 70. It was a 70 last year, too. Does that mean I didn’t make any progress? NO! My scores in several areas are improved, while a few others have declined. That’s because my life is different than it was a year ago. While my physical and emotional scores are better, my intellectual and social scores slipped some. In other words, my life responsibilities have changed and I have had less time to devote to training and relationships outside our family. Now that I see that, I can make new goals this year to improve those areas.
That’s what is great about the LifeScore Assessment. I doubt I’ll ever get a 100, but I can re-test and make adjustments yearly to stay aware of where my life is going.
