Reset Your Life

Most of us live very busy lives without really stepping back and asking ourselves these questions. Am I happy? How are things going? Do I need to make a change?


Over the last 2 years, there has been a mass exodus of people in the workplace. It's called the Great Resignation. It's have been viewed as more of a recent phenomenon. But the trend has been building over the last decade and accelerated by the recent COVID Pandemic (1)


We are so busy with life we often forget ourselves, and forget to pause and take stock of what we are doing and why we are doing it, because our rationale is, "I have too much going." or it's just not a priority to make it a habit.



 

"Working hard for something we don't care about is called stress.


Working hard for something we love is called passion"


-Simon Sinek

 

My experience with this happened last year. I was not taking care of myself, I didn't evaluate how I was doing. I didn't ask why?


What changed? How did I reset? How did I change direction? The change came because of a James Clear article I read about getting 1 Percent Better (2) and the desire to change.


I knew after reading that I needed to make changes in my life. I needed to RESET and find out what I needed to do more and less of. By taking action I am learning more, I am writing more, and I am changing and part of that change has been developing the mission of this website, Habits, Continuous Improvement, and positive thinking.


Benefits of a Little Time Out


The Great Resignation has led to a lot of changes in people's lives so more people are evaluating what they want to do other than their current roles.


The benefit of taking time to re-evaluate, to reset, is massive. Here are a few things:

  1. Reminds us what is important in life.

  2. We can figure out what's working and what's not.

  3. Allows us to prioritize and focus on what makes us happy.


Many people right now feel they are not valued at work, either because of lack of recognition or they want to feel like they are a part of something. Others feel like their talents could be used in better ways.


Finding fulfillment and enjoyment in what employees do is one of the prime factors of people moving out of the workforce.(3)


Recognizing what is important to you and what is not working will be essential in moving forward to change your life. It will take time and some practice. It's difficult to know where to start in fact that might be the most challenging part of the journey.


Starting the Journey


Over the next few weeks and months, I will be developing a series of articles to help you step-by-step, push the reset button, or at least make you more aware of where you are and where you can go.


I hope it will inspire you, and motivate you, to move to a happier future. Change is difficult but it is also very rewarding because you can find something that can reinvent who you are and what you want to become.


So welcome to the Great Life Reset to rediscover who you are and rebalance what you do.
