The Process of Seeing What is Important (and What is Not)
For many people, identifying how to move forward in their lives is just too hard. Things are just too big, too hard to walk around or walk through, too hard to do anything with at all. So the solution is to do nothing. To feel tired, to eat too much, to drink too much or maybe spend too much time without companionship. Certainly exercise rarely gets a look in.
If we put these ‘too hard’ everyday life occurrences into one big circle it appears like an eclipse of the sun, and in many cases it feels exactly like that.
However, if we flatten out the perimeter of the circle into a line with each ‘issue’ marked on the line, it is amazing how these life issues become not so intimidating and worthy of closer inspection.
We can now see in an orderly manner; what is important and what is not, what is worthwhile listening to and what is not, what is worth our time and energy and what is not.
The funny thing is that at least half of what we thought was important in the circle can be dispensed with when we drop the emotion and view the ‘flat line’ scenario. Even if we were to put the leftovers back into a circle, the circle appears so small that there is nothing that can’t be tackled.
At A Happier Life we help our client’s breakdown the circle into achievable segments and dispose of the ‘white noise’ that many of us carry around each and every day.
