Guid­ance on how to re­flect and find pur­pose in each day

HAVE YOU EVER WON­DERED:

• Is it worth get­ting out of bed?

• Does my ef­fort make any dif­fer­ence?

• Can I keep do­ing this over and over?

As hu­man be­ings we strive for mean­ing and pur­pose and some­times in our busy­ness and lists, we lose sight of the big­ger pic­ture. We for­get what a dif­fer­ence we do make. It’s good to re­mind our­selves. One tech­nique we highly rec­om­mend is to use The Map of Mean­ing; a beau­ti­ful way to ex­plore mean­ing in your ev­ery day. The

Map of Mean­ing is a tool cre­ated from a PhD by Mar­jolein Lips-Wiersma. Use this out­line to draw the Map on a sheet of pa­per, or cre­ate a Map you can walk round on the floor by us­ing sev­eral sheets.

TAKE YOUR FO­CUS AND STEP RIGHT INTO THE CEN­TER: 1. In­spi­ra­tion.

Ask your­self, ‘what in­spires me today’? Place your hand on your heart and feel what will bring your heart alive today.

2. Move your at­ten­tion to Re­al­ity.

Ask your­self, ‘what must get done today’? Hon­estly pri­or­i­tize and con­fi­dently cre­ate a list of things that are both im­por­tant and ur­gent. Make sure that you cre­ate space for things that will make you feel alive.

NOW WALK ROUND THE FOUR QUADRANTS. FO­CUS ON THE THING THAT IN­SPIRES YOU: 1. Ex­press­ing Full Po­ten­tial.

• What do I have the op­por­tu­nity to cre­ate today?

• What can I uniquely bring to this?

• What strengths can use I in this?

2. In­tegrity with Self.

• How could I be the best form of me in what I do?

• Is it time to speak up about some­thing?

• What would today look like if I was even more true to my­self?
