Does your life feel like an endless game of whack-a-mole?
Can you easily answer what really makes you happy?
I can help. Try this exercise for a few days...
- On a blank piece of paper write down “what makes me happy” at the top of the page.
- Next write down anything that comes to mind. Words, emotions, places, people, images … don’t think about it too hard. Just write down any thoughts or images that come to your mind no matter what they are. Feel like gibberish? Write it down anyways.
Do this for three days in a row right before bed. Then, on the fourth day, read what you’ve written. You will begin to see a common theme.
For example, maybe travel makes you happy. Well, working in a cubicle probably won't serve you so you might look for a job that makes you travel, or at the very least allows you to do different things each day. If you see names of people popping up, then why not give them a call if they make you happy?
Take action even if it’s a small one. Move forward!
