Time to Reorganize



The past several weeks has been very different. They feel like experiencing a hurricane and the aftermath of no power, unable to go anywhere, etc. However, with this virus, dissimilar to that of a hurricane, most everywhere in the country and world are affected, not simply one geographic area.

 A large group of people have more time on their hands and are looking for things to keep them busy. Of course, not everyone is in this boat as there are many working to keep things moving and keeping us safe and healthy.

No matter your situation, now is a great time to reorganize. No matter what has happened in your life, past or present, once a year it is good to review your life and see where you need to reorganize. This will take some time to do it right, so do not hurry through the exercise.

Begin by asking these five questions and writing down your responses. Lay the paper with your responses to the side for a day or two, then read them again. Make any changes and continue this process for several weeks.

The questions include:

  1. Who am I?
  2. Where have I come from?
  3. How did I get here?
  4. Where do I want to go?
  5. How can I get there?

Most of us would say we know who we are, where we came from, and how we got here. Before you simply jot down the answers to these questions, think of the “why” behind them as well. Speak to your emotions surrounding the questions, identify those who helped you along the way, the obstacles and challenges you faced and how you overcame them.

The future may be the questions that take the most effort. You knew who you were then and now; however, we are constantly changing. Times change, technology changes, and while we cannot predict the future, we can create goals and objectives. You may need to change your current career, how you operate your business, with whom you associate, focus on your health, break or make a relationship, or maybe life has thrown you a fast ball and you have to react and regroup.

Reorganize your life, goals and objectives and create a plan to accomplish it. You will enjoy the process, the challenge, and the results. Please share the journey if you would like as I would love to hear it.


Until next month,
