Pursuing A Satifying Life

 

WAYS TO REFLECT AND LIVE A MORE SATISFYING LIFE: 

 

  • Who & what is important to me?
  • What routines and disciplines do I want in my life? – Disciplines such as the following: physical exercise, adequate sleep, healthy eating, prayer, reading, worship, thinking & reflection, community service, etc.
  • What are my skills, my strengths, and my interests and how do I find ways to express these parts of who I am in my daily life?
  • What are my values and how do I honor them in all aspects of my life?
  • What do I find most satisfying about my life today?
  • What are the best parts of my work life and what do I want to be doing more?
  • How can I better bring together what I love doing and the work I do to make a living?
  • How can I have a satisfying balance between my personal and professional lives?
  • What dreams and goals do I have for my life and for my family?
  • Have I thought about another kind of work I want to pursue?
  • What practices in my life today interfere with what I want for the “big picture” of my life?

Making use of these questions: 

  1. Take some regularly scheduled time (Daily or weekly) to reflect, journal your responses, and plan your desired changes.
  2. Talk regularly with a friend who is also interested in directing their life so you can both clarify and implement your desires
    for your lives.
