It takes considerable intention in order to create the space and time to reflect.
Robin Sharma shares the 20 20 20 Rule. The 20 20 20 Rule encourages you to spend the first 20 minutes of the day exercising, the second 20 minutes reviewing your goals and daily plan and the third 20 minute reading or being inspired.
Right now 1-hour might be a lot to carve out, your first 20 minutes may also be consumed by a child jumping on you and waking you up in bed, but how can you get some reflection time into your daily, weekly or monthly life in 2014?
Daniel Pink's recent blog shared three life hacks for 2014, perhaps one resonates with you:
- Start the year off with an empty jar. When something good happens, write it on a slip of paper, and toss it into the jar.
- No matter what, write 20 minutes a day in January.
- Video one second of your life every single day.
Now, how can you build reflection into each of those life hacks?
I have decided to challenge myself to filling an empty jar with the celebratory moments, and I have challenged my family to do it together. We are also going to include our response to:
- What made that moment special?
- How will this moment impact our 2014?
How will you pause and reflect throughout 2014?
