Revisiting and Revitalising

These are intertwined. One results in the other. When you're moving at a pace, everything moment being planned out, and there is hardly room to breathe, you need to book a diary appointment to do some revisiting.

Revisiting is looking back over the notes you made and the aims you had and evaluating. Here are some questions to help with exactly what you're looking for:

1. What were your aims then? If you don't write them down, you won't be able to do this. 2. What is going well with the aims? Force yourself to vocalise this as if you're reporting to someone. If nothing, write 'Nothing is going well with this aim'. 3. What is the problem with going further, better, more? If it's ticking along, that's great- and still a good answer. If there is a problem, be brutally honest. For example: My partner and I are arguing about my time' 4. Is there an immediate way to see round the obstacle? If it's a time issue, set a diary time which you can stick to. 5. Give yourself a pat on the back. If you've got lots of aims and you've managed to get one going, brilliant.


For any 'scanners' like me out there: for us, time is warped. Sometimes we think we have so much time, endless days to achieve whatever we want. Sometimes, however, the pressure gets to us - we cannot cope with having too much to do and not enought time to do it. Relax. Dream again. Keep making the things you want a priority, don't cut things for the sake of it. Allow yourself to remember that you can achieve things as not everything takes as long as you think, and often we can work it out (google is helpful for this!) How long will it take me to learn how to swim? A course of swimming lessons is a matter of weeks.

I've been trying to cram everything in recently, and have allowed a growing feeling to get to me - that I'm not achieving anything. In fact, I've been achieving a lot! I just had to look at it, in the context of what I'm trying to do. Look, be inspired and play on.
