So much of life and the way in which we interpret day-to-day interactions is a matter of perspective. Sometimes the best choice we can make is to take a step back and consider our current situation from a different lens.
How can you shift perspective?
Set aside time each week to take stock and reflect on the changes you want to make and the goals you have yet to achieve. When we focus on overarching themes, challenges and daily decisions are set into their rightful place.
Where are you headed and are you walking in the right direction? Are you getting the results you want?
Chores, calendar schedules, and to-do lists are great productivity tools, but they can just as easily serve as energy leaks, distracting from your most important goals.
Remind yourself what really matters. Change perspective when necessary. A different lens might help.
