Hey guys! Welcome back. We have all been there. We have had moments, days, weeks where we wanted to get our lives together and have a fresh start. However, one of the biggest issues with that is we often don’t know what “getting our lives together” looks like. So today I wanted to share with you a few things you can do right now to start getting your life together. Of course, these are not the only things because getting your life together is mostly unique to you. However, this will help you at least have a starting point and you can move forward from there.
Review your strengths and weaknesses.
Start by making a list of your strengths and a list of your weaknesses. Write down the things you know you are good at and the things that seem to be working for you right now. And then make a list of the things you want to work on and the things you need to change. This will help you know exactly what you are working toward and what things you need to “get together”. Knowing your strengths and weaknesses will help you understand yourself better and clearly define the areas that you need to be looking at.
Make a plan for change.
One of the best things you can do when it comes to making any kind of change happen is to have a plan. Because otherwise, you won’t have a structure that will help you make the change. You will just be wandering in all different directions not knowing exactly what to do next. So having a plan is an essential step for getting your life together and building a better life for yourself. Figure out what you are working towards and what you want to change and start figuring out ways to make that happen.
Set realistic goals.
Goals are also essential when it comes to any kind of growth or change. Setting goals will help you have something tangible that you can work towards and track. This will also help you create a better plan for yourself and understand what you are doing and why you are doing it. Your goals should always be intentional towards whatever it is that you need to do in order to get your life together. Goals will help motivate you and remind you of what you need to be doing.
This may seem like an obvious one, but it’s one that most people typically don’t enjoy doing. However, it is a key step in the process. Organizing everything just gets you another step toward the direction you want to go. Organize your home, your desk, you computer, your ideas, and anything else you have going on. Organization helps you physically see your life coming together and once it is done you will feel a lot better and more at peace.
While you are organizing, take some time to declutter. Get rid of the things you don’t need. Throw out or donate anything that does not add value to your life. This will not only help you be more organized, but it creates more space and you will feel so much better about being productive everyday. You won’t have useless and unwanted things in your way all the time. Decluttering is one of the biggest ways to get your life together and if you do it well, it could stay that way for a long time.
