Yesterday we made some observations about things I chose/didn’t choose to do on my busy day from Monday’s post.
Today, you can reflect on your own busy day. I’ll describe the minimal approach that you can do in about three minutes.
The point of this exercise is to understand how and why you made your decisions, not to evaluate them.
Step 1: List out several things you did on one of your recent days
This works best if you choose a combination of mundane/routine, important, and unexpected things. You could also add something from your to-do list that did not get done. Just think of one thing for each of those categories unless you have 20-30 minutes to work through your full day.
For example, my three for Tuesday would have been:
Step 2: What could you have done instead?
You could do this for each thing or for the day in general. Simply put, if you had chosen to not do something what could or would you have done instead?
Step 3: Think about the decisions behind your choices
Tomorrow, we’ll think about being more intentional about choosing your activities.
I’d really like some feedback on this post. Did you have any “aha” moments? You can email me your aha if you had one.
Do good and be well,
