Today, some people will celebrate a lesser known “holiday” known as Evaluate Your Life day. October 19 is a day to STOP and really consider your life—where you are and where you’re headed.
The day can be as simple or as detailed as you want it to be. The entire point of acknowledging this “holiday” is to take an inventory of your life—and to make decisions and goals to supplement what you discover about yourself.
Some people will focus on a single aspect of their life. Be it work life, love life, family life, social life, etc. And others may focus on more tangible subjects, such as appearance, home, etc. Whatever area of your life you feel could use an inventory, take time today to stop and think. Find a quiet place where you can be alone with your thoughts. Pull out a journal and take a few notes. Determine those adjustments your own life can use. And put them to work!
If you need a nudge, a simple Internet search turned up a listing of these 35 questions that you could use to evaluate your life.
Other questions to get you started include:
- Where are you?
- Describe your current situation in three words.
- Think back to who you were five years ago. Are you (today) where you thought you would be?
- Where are you headed? Is it where you want to be? (If it isn’t, how can you get on the path you want to be on?)
- What adjustments must you make?
