How has 2020 been for you? Frankly, I’m excited about this year! There are so many opportunities ahead of us. There are so many possibilities. But of course, it’s up to us to make the most of them.
To do that, I believe that optimizing your life should become a mission of yours. You should constantly strive to optimize your life.
What does that mean? Well, here is a definition of optimize from the dictionary:
make the best or most effective use of (a situation, opportunity, or resource).
Optimizing your life means making the best or most effective use of your life. It means making the most of your resources and opportunities. It means reaching your full potential.
Here are some thoughts on how to optimize your life.
1. It starts with your motivation.
To optimize your life, you should want to do it. You should have the motivation. Do you want to make the most of your life? Do you want to be all that you can be? If you don’t, you won’t make the necessary effort.
I believe such motivation comes from appreciating your life. The more you appreciate your life, the more you will want to make the most of it.
2. It’s guided by your purpose in life.
Optimizing your life isn’t just about making your days efficient. Much more important than that is living a fulfilling life by contributing to a cause that matters to you.
That cause is your purpose in life and it guides you in using your limited resources. It also helps you set the right values that will help you in making decisions.
3. It’s done by having the right processes.
The results you get depend on your processes. A good process will produce a good result and vice versa. So if you want to change your results, you need to change your processes. It’s a universal principle that applies not just to individuals, but also to organizations and even nations.
At an individual level, your processes consist of your habits, procedures, and responses. I wrote more about them in The Proven Way to Change Your Results.
With the right motivation, purpose, and processes, you will be on your way to optimizing your life. You will live a fulfilling and productive life.
