Are you struggling to check all the boxes on your to-do list without letting anyone down? Does it sometimes feel hopeless that your situation will ever change? You’re not alone! So many of us find ourselves chasing after unrealistic expectations to the point of burnout. We have been brainwashed to believe that since we can do it all, we should -and we’re a failure if we don’t! It’s so EXHAUSTING! We’ve all been there – but it does not have to be this way! Clarity is your superpower.
How do you know if you lack clarity?
- You’re overwhelmed by your schedule and to-do list.
- You often stay up late and get up early, hoping to catch up – but you never do.
- You struggle to make decisions without asking for advice.
- Your self-care is severely lacking- you’re tired, anxious, and stressed out.
- You say yes without considering what you’ll have to say no to.
Here are 3 ways that clarity works for you:
1. Reduced decision fatigue
Every day, you make thousands of micro-decisions such as which outfit to wear, what to make for dinner, or how to juggle priorities in addition to bigger life-impacting decisions. Regardless of size, decision-making consumes mental energy, which is not an unlimited resource! When you have clarity about what matters most to you, you can more easily establish habits and routines that support your vision and streamline choices.
2. Get off the hamster-wheel lifestyle.
When you have clarity about what is most important to you (not necessarily most urgent), your priorities become apparent, and you will feel less obligated to let the task list rule your day. You will find more margin in your days and less frantic energy to get #allthethings done.
3. Better choices and results.
When you have a clear focus on what matters most to you, you are more than 50% of the way there! Clarity about your direction empowers you to create a schedule, organize tasks and implement habits that either support your single focus or make distractions to it disappear.
What does mental clarity look like for you? How would you schedule your days, spend your time, and feel at the end of each day if you were clear about your purpose and priorities?
Imagine what it would be like to make decisions easily and feel in control of your calendar, rather than it being in control of you. You can do it!
