🌱EVOLVE OR REVOLVE ☀️
‘Look at your daily habits and ask yourself if they are causing you to evolve or revolve. Are you moving forward or just moving in circles?’
Came across this quote awhile back and it made me reflect on my own habits. Initially it hit home for me because in the past month I have been working a lot but not necessarily on things that push the needle forward. I’ve been feeling a bit like I have been running on the spot but have gone no where and its been incredibly frustrating. Upon further reflection I also realized that this ‘evolving or revolve’ way of thinking can go way beyond my career ambitions but could and should be used in all facets of my life like health, self love, and hobbies.
As for that feeling of being stuck - obviously nobody can be on their A-game all the time, but after speaking to my life coach (aka my mom) and digging a little deeper, I realized I may have been approaching things the wrong way.
I have been creating ‘to-do’ list with things I think are important without fully strategizing ‘what I needs to get done’ and ‘what I want to get done’ - and this is important because ‘BUSY’ does NOT equate to ‘PRODUCTIVITY’.
So from now on, instead of working off a ‘to do’ lists i’m using my schedule. I mean, I’ll still make a list of tasks I need to get done but instead of just tackling it with no forethought, i’m going to categorize things by importance and organizing them into my calendar allotting a time for each task.
Personally I find having my day mapped out is a more realistic way to visualize my time and what I am even realistically capable of accomplishing in a day.
Do you feel like you have been revolving instead of evolving? Let’s talk about it! Tell me how you are feeling below.
