Are you aware of the decisions you make?

Everything is a Decision!

In this video I talk about the importance of becoming aware of the decisions that are made on a daily basis. We make thousands of decisions a day. Some big and some small, some are unimportant and some that are life-changing. This is even harder after cancer!

I have conversations with people about how it’s difficult to get out of the rut that they’re in.  They’re busy in that work/life rut with, bills and family life. Just caught in that that vicious circle. You know that it’s hard to focus on anything else and there’s no balance in life.

So why is it so hard?

Well it’s easy to become complacent in our life. We enjoy the kind of repetition of what happens, and having no variety gives us a feeling of security. Not Having too many outside influences throw wrenches into what we are doing. That’s one of the toughest things, to break the mold of doing the same thing that we do all the time.

Normally for most people all we do is work to pay bills. Then we come home and we do a little family stuff, watch TV and go to bed. Only to repeat it all over again. There’s this this vicious circle that needs to be broken.

The biggest thing to do is try to acknowledge that you want change. Realize that you’re getting sick and tired of the same old thing every single day. What it really comes down to is realizing and acknowledging what is going on your life. By realizing what is happening, then you can start down the path of making those conscious decisions to change.

Yes, you still have to get up

and go to work. You have to pay the bills and spend time with your kids and continue your family obligations. But what do you do during your free time, that time you spend watching TV or happy hour with your peers, whatever it is you do, know that once you start figuring out and understanding your time management, you can start focusing on what it is you want to accomplish.

Becoming aware of the choices that you make really make a big impact on the decisions you want to take your life in.

For me, it is important to realize where I am spending my Time. I was on social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram when I felt bored. Next thing you know, two-three hours were wasted, time that could have been spent being productive working on my goals and ambitions.

Ill catch myself watching TV and next thing you know, it’s 11 o’clock at night and I’ve just wasted a quarter of the day doing nothing, not even being productive at anything that I was wanting to be productive at.

So I became aware!

And I acknowledge the fact that I was needing to make that change. I understand the choices I make. The first choice was taking huge step away from social media. Facebook in particular because I realized that it was a huge time-suck for me.

Realizing this freed up a lot of extra time. I start working towards creating videos, coming up with topics, and working on Internal Architect and  Strap In For Life. Doing things that are important to me.

Then I started taking that action to put it all together.

Don’t get me wrong, it took a lot of time to boil it all down and start Understanding the intricacies of my life. The best part about is, I went from being really distracted and not really learning anything, to a growth mindset of just learning and growing as a person. This really changed my outlook of what I wanted to do, and by making those conscious decisions were really, really huge.

If you feel like you are going through that same thing, stuck in a rut, take a step back and look at what’s going on with your time. You might be having a hard time figuring out what you need to do. And this is a great place to start.

Next, start writing thoughts down and start moving Forward by taking action twards next step of your path you’ve been on. That’s how your Get out of that rut that you’ve created!
