Do you journal?
You might find it improves your focus:
Reviewing hopes and goals that became reality remind us to celebrate the wins we’ve achieved that we maybe didn’t pause to fully recognise.
Regrets we feel about wasted time are squashed by paper reminders that much of what we’ve done probably exceeds our past goals anyway.
Goals that have shifted over time are good reminders that what’s important to us today may not be quite so important later, just as our older ones aren’t so important today.
Constant goals are good reminders of the things that actually are important to us, that perhaps need more focus than we’ve been giving them (maybe because of the shifting goals above).
It’s not always easy giving the time to the discipline of keeping a journal.
But there’s a magic in looking into the mind of your former self which, if harnessed, can help create more focus and appreciation today.
