Spiritual Life Coaching – Lists

Are you a list maker? There’s the good and bad to lists. We generate them to remind ourselves of what needs to get done but we often put so many things on them in such random order that we never finish. It’s then when we feel overwhelmed and unaccomplished. What needs to get done today and what is important to you? At times work is in the driver’s seat but we have to take time for personal development and well being too. That is something I’m keenly aware of this week.

Here are a few tips that might help – they help me.

Write down all of your ideas. Keep a notebook or use your electronic device to jot ideas down. It doesn’t matter how outlandish they seem. These ideas are often the seeds of some new direction or intention. Make a list of smaller more manageable tasks that you can accomplish today and mark them off when you complete them – this gives you a sense of accomplishment. Make sure you have things on that list for self care and personal development. Your spiritual life has to be a priority – nourish your spirit and you nourish your life. Try to make a list of measurable goals that are broken down into pieces and look at them every few days. Make some fanciful spectacular goals that you might achieve in five or ten years. Have some fun and dare to dream. Share your goals with people you are close to and won’t laugh at what a dreamer you are. Finally, celebrate your accomplishments regularly.

“Brothers and sisters, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:13-14 

Be Well…
