This week may find you worrying about money, status, or your level of success in the world. There is a strong pull towards introspection and self-evaluation right now as the days grow shorter and the nights grow longer. In the harvest time of year, it’s normal to assess where you are. Just be sure that the standard you measure yourself against is based on what actually matters, rather than on arbitrary rules set by fickle society.
This week’s homework:
- It’s time for inventory, boys and girls. Take an hour or so, grab a notebook and pen, sit down in a warm, comfy chair. Put on some soothing music and make sure you won’t be disturbed. Now, ready? Write down every good thing in your life. Literally down to the minimum. Here’s the trick: They cannot be materially-based things. In other words, instead of writing I have a 2019 BMW sitting in the garage., write I have reliable transportation that is comfortable and fun to drive. Instead of writing I make ____ dollars a year at my job., write I do work that satisfies me, does good in the world, and provides for my family.
We spend so much time putting numbers and dollar signs on our lives, as if that’s what gives them meaning. Numbers are the easiest form of measurement and also one of the most superficial. Numbers can be manipulated to mean anything and often neglect the most relevant measurement of all: are you happy? So as you go through this week and assess your life, ask yourself, all things considered…am I happy?
