#006 | How to Create a Life that Works for YOU 💯

We’re here with a relatively quick one this week…

…and that’s because the key ingredient here is you.

Well, you + your answer to this question: 

What do you care about most & value most in your life?

And what can you do, both immediately & over time, to help you get more of what you want.

There are so many ways to do life…..so many ways to (consciously and/or unconsciously) relate to others…

…so many ways to engage with your work, your health, your [anything + everything]

Pick a few core pillars to focus on at the start.

Or rank a bunch of them and then address them in priority order 1 - 2 at a time.

Whatever works for you!  

(kinda the point of the entire newsletter lol 😉)

It can be as specific or as general as you want.

It can be internal like experimenting with different breathing patterns to see what feels best for you.

Try it and see what effect different breath rhythms can have on:

- your energy

- your focus

- your physical performance

- your nervous system

It can be external like the way you set up the physical spaces you occupy most.

Ask yourself how you can use them to maximize their ability to direct you towards better choices. Think about choices that impact  your health, your happiness, your success, etc

Jacey Duprie - Doing What Works For YOU

Earlier this year, Jacey Duprie published a book called Liking Myself Back that has a powerful message for everyone.

Regardless of how many times you post on social media + how many people see your posts...

Jacey's journey to self acceptance illuminates a couple major truths.  One of them is very on brand with this newsletter:

Even though it's important to see what's working for others; you are responsible for figuring out what works for you.

You owe it to yourself to think about & then attempt some ways to improve core areas of your life.

Even if it’s simple rules or optimizations around screen time, sleep hygiene, ways to get more steps in, etc…

...every little improvement adds up when done consistently over time.

If you want a comprehensive list of values, see this values document from Brene Brown

Here is a shorter list if you just want to dip your toe in for now.

Consider these values. Consider what actions need to be taken to create greater alignment with your core chosen value(s) + principle(s). 

Alright, that's it! Until next time, go forth and use this exercise to help you build  new agreements.....



....and operating principles that create a life that works optimally for you!
