It is resolution time! Each year, billions of people decide that it is time for a change and kick it off Jan 1 (ok maybe Jan 5). When I think of resolutions, I think of getting the most out of life through the experiences that life provides.
We all want to get great experiences. The question is how?
I like to think of a three legged stool with:
- Leg 1—Health
- Leg 2—Money
- Leg 3—Relationships
These three legs support the experiences of life.
Health—it is impossible to enjoy all that life has to offer if you are ill. So in 2016, make the commitment that health will not hold you back. That means you need to take a look at what you eat, how often you exercise and how much sleep you get at night. These three things are the cornerstones of being healthy.
Money—it is nearly impossible to enjoy all that life has to offer if you are constantly worried about money. So in 2016, make the commitment that you will both grow your revenue and watch where your money goes so that you are spending less than you are making. Start that travel account so that you put aside money each month so that you can experience life.
Relationships—it is nearly impossible to enjoy all that life has to offer if you are going to do it by yourself (and no, social media does not count). Invest the time needed to keep your relationships strong. That means with your spouse, kids, family, close friends, whoever is important to you.
This year, take a look at the legs of the experience stool and get a little better at each one. Then enjoy the results.
If you are not sure where to start, reach out to your local ActionCOACH business coach and come up with a game plan to get the most out of 2016.
