I did this little exercise the other day and found it quite revealing.
I decided to list all the things I like to do - all of them.
Then I marked them 1 - 10, 1 being I really didn't like it or found it boring, 10 being it's the best thing to do in the world. (OK - keep it clean!)
After looking at the list and scores I then created another column called "If I had more time". Under that I rescored everything on the list eg: originally I had Playing guitar scored as 4, but in the "If I had more time" column I scored it 6 because I'd like to do more of it if I could. If I had time to take lessons and get better I'd enjoy it more.
So what's the point I hear you ask?
The point is, after looking at both columns I could see what I liked doing most, and more importantly what I was doing most of but NOT enjoying. Now using this list I can make a more informed decision as to how I'd like to spend my spare time.
Below is a list of some of the things that might appear on your own list if you decide to make one - just to get you started.
Would love to hear how you got on with it.
Here you go:
Playing an instrument
Walking the dog
Playing with the kids
As with all things - if you feel inspired by this idea...do something, take action, make a change - TODAY!
