So as you know I decided to switch things up this year and try different ways of doing my goals–so instead of setting a long list of resolutions at the beginning of the year, I decided I’d try two different things: 101 goals in 1001 days (though I’ve gone beyond the 101 goals) and looking at my life from a level 10 perspective.
Basically with the level 10 life, you take 10 areas of your life and you rank them from 0 to 10 (0 being totally unhappy and 10 being totally happy with the way things are turning out). Then depending on how you ranked everything, you can set a goal (or two) to work on in each area to try to bring that number up higher the next time you do an level 10 assessment.
So I’ve been trying to do the level 10 assessment quarterly (every three months). So this would be my second assessment of how I’m doing based on the goals I set at the end of March (it’s hard to believe that we’re already half way through the year).
So I actually went and bought a new journal for the second half of the year–and it is one that is actually recommended more for the bullet journal process, as it’s a dot journal. there aren’t any actual lines in the journal—just rows of dots. So this time the graphs don’t line up perfectly with the titles underneath, but hey–it’s my first time I’ll get better with practice.
So basically I’m holding steady in each area (with minor 0.5 variations in both directions with several of the areas). Right now my social life has the lowest setting, but that is due in part to being an total introvert and not really wanting to go out to bars with friends; and the fact that I’m quite content not really having a social life. Yes this is something that I know I need to work on, but being totally honest–it is probably going to happen after I move again for the new job.
As I stated in the quote that I placed on the page: “Strive for progress, not perfection”.
So most of my goals for the level 10 life are what I had at the end of the first quarter. Though I can say that I am going to start working on organizing my storage unit this month–maybe by working on that I can kick start several other areas as well. Sometimes our biggest blockade in where we are wanting to go is us–sometimes we just have to get out of our own way (at least mentally) and just trust in the universe that we are going to end up where we need to be.
So maybe–just maybe this quarter I will get a few of them edging a little higher or at least have put a big enough push to get the momentum needed to start going in the proper direction.
