Day 3 Brainstorm
After yesterdays musings on what is important to you, what your true values are, today is the time to brainstorm what that means. Create a personal mental health notebook. This notebook is for you to write down how you are feeling about where you are now in your life and where you would ideally like to be. An example would be. “ I work in a job where I feel I am not making a difference. I am stuck in an office most of the day and often feel that nobody really cares or reads what I produce.” Maybe you feel that however hard you work you don’t feel appreciated, or the workload is overwhelming and meaningless. On the other page of your diary write how you would like your career to be. “I would love to be able to travel for my work. To be more self suffciant, and the more I put into my work the more money I make” Or “I would love to work from home, be my own boss, be around to pick the children up from school, give back to my community” I often use the analogy of a taxi driver when talking to my clients. If you were to get into the back of a taxi and the driver said “Hi where are you wanting to go to”? If your reply is something on the lines of “I don’t know, I hate my job, that women drives me crazy I just can’t seem to do anything to please her.” So the driver says “O.K. so where would you like to go?” You reply “I don’t know, but not here I hate it, I never have time to do the things I want, I’m so exhausted and overwhelmed I don’t have time to think” So the taxi driver says “O.K we will just sit here then” You see in order to achieve the outcomes we want in life we need to decide where we want to be, how we get there I will cover later on in this series. For now TODAY brainstorm what you want, that’s the key, don’t miss this opportunity because right now you do have the time.
