How to Strategize Your Life

What is your relationship with consciously designing your life?

Are you strategizing to make life your masterpiece?

Or are you randomly treading your way through, taking stabs in any and every direction and feeling mindlessly BUSY all the time?

Uh-uh. Focus your energy like a f*cking warrior – by taking responsibility for YOUR personal life strategy.

Here are a few tools I recommend for stepping into the Strategic Life of Badassery that you are ABSOLUTELY made for 

πŸ’Ž Visualize your future as a movie (3 months, 1 year, 3 years – your mind responds to and creates your reality according to vivid mental imagery backed by emotion)

πŸ’ŽHave a strong morning routine (begin your day with an “hour of power” – NO phone – keep phone on plane mode all night – include movement, meditation, journaling, and reflecting on your long-term vision + any affirmations/music/words etc that PUMP YOU THE F UP)

πŸ’Ž Identify your values – (what are your non-negotiables, the guiding compass by which you make decisions? Keep a list of your values at hand to use as a blueprint for decision-making, & revisit core values at least once/year to see if anything has changed for you)

πŸ’Ž Eliminate habits of distraction (place limits on social media usage, take note of where you let your attention split, replace distracting/addictive habits with supportive ones)

πŸ’Ž Create a list of 3-5 priorities the NIGHT before (this will set your mind up for success the following day and preserves mental energy in the morning as you can jump right in after your rituals)

πŸ’Ž Know your skills/experiences/value add (what are you great at? Where can you add massive value for others? Play to your strengths, and delegate the rest when you can)

πŸ’Ž Conduct monthly/yearly reviews (end of the month: What did I learn? What experiences/relationships helped me grow? What were my successes/challenges? for next month: What experiences do I wish to have? What are my tangible outcomes? What are the next benchmarks for my 6-month, 1-year, 3-year goals? What are 3-5 intentions I have for this month?)

πŸ’Ž Spend time thinking what you want and WHY (this will change over time! Review your goals regularly, along with their WHY – as this is the fuel that will propel you past the initial excitement of a new objective)

If you wanna dive into a strategy intensive for your creative work in the world – let me know πŸ”₯Taking ownership of your destiny is some of the most important work you can DO – and trust me, you’re WORTH it.
