Now I am on day 34 in testing the 5 AM club with Robin Sharma, and it is still a bit of a struggle to get out of bed, but it is worth it. Getting up early really gives me the time to think and reflect on different topics that I never had the time or energy to do before.
This morning I was thinking about my personal values. I have made an exercise before where I took the time to pick 4 words that represent my “value cross” (you draw this like a cross and put the 4 words in the end of the lines). You can start by making a longer list, then you narrow it down to the 4 that you really feel that you is representing what is important to you. Then you can rate these 4 words on a scale from 1-10, that says how happy you are today with the way you live these values (1 = not at all, 5= OK, 10 = very happy). Today I was doing the rating again, to see if I have been improving living by my values. When doing this exercise, I found out that I will probably have to change one of the words. And this can happen. If you do feel after a while that some of the words is not the right for you anymore, of course you can change and keep finetuning where needed.
This exercise will tell you if you are living according to your inner personal values or not. And if you do, you will have a much better chance of keeping your focus on your personal targets in life! And you will know where to sail your boat, not just drifting by. Wish you the best of luck with this exercise if you choose to try it. Take care. Namaste.
