Having clarity and value supports the invisible architecture of everyday life. Habits are the invisible architecture of daily life, and a significant element of happiness, productive and creativity. How do we change? Why is it so hard to make ourselves do things that we want to do? How do we stick to our resolutions? So many questions and far too many are unanswered.
When there is the lack of clarity and the paralysis that ensues, it seems to be quite common. The biggest challenge is clarity. Something that you want to do but can’t get yourself to do, because you don; have clarity. The lack of clarity arises from a feeling of “ambivalence,” the wanting of something that conflicts with what you want, and makes you more conflicted.
Take a good close look at this list of aims and conflict that are most often spoken silently or vocal:
I want to eat healthfully. It is wrong to waste food.
I want to give 100% to work. I want to give 100% to my family.
I want to work on my novel. I want to exercise.
Making money is not important. Making money is important.
I want to be accessible to other people. I want time alone to think and work.
I want to be a polite guest. I want to avoid guest.
I want leisure time when I come home from work. I want to live in a house that’s clean and well-run.
I want to get to know and understand myself and what I need to do. I want to thrive and value myself.
Life will become much easier to navigate once you recognize what your values are and why you need them. Your values are the things that you believe are important in the way you live and work. When the things that you do and the way you behave match your values, life is usually good – you’re satisfied and content. But, when these don’t align with your personal values, that’s when things feel—wrong.
In this type of situation, understanding your core values, you will be able to help yourself. When you know your values, you can use them to make decisions about how to live your life, a and you can answer question like these:
What job should I pursue?
Should I accept this promotion?
Should I start my own business?
Should I compromise, or be firm with my position?
Should I follow tradition or travel down a new path?
Take the time to understand the real priorities in your life and you’ll be able to determine the best direction for your life goals.
Until the next time, take good care and be well.
