Using the same method I used when I first started this path eleven years ago, I created a table, listing the things that bring me happiness (things I want more of in my life) on the left; and things that don't bring me happiness (things I want less of in my life) on the right. It sounds simple, right? Well, it is and it isn't. Eleven years ago, it took me about a year to put the original list together. These days, I know myself far better, yet it still requires some serious soul searching and meditation. But within a matter of a few days, I was able to pinpoint 6 things I want more of and 6 things I want less of in my life.
The hard part, of course, is in implementation. But keeping those 12 things in mind, I created a list of 12 action items that would help me get my life back in order; back to the life of simplicity I crave. Now the list is pretty private and I'm keeping the details to myself, but I will share the bookmark I made for myself a few years ago listing more general goals as well as some photos to remind me of what's important. Since I'm always reading, my bookmark is always there as that gentle reminder.
How often do you reevaluate your path? Do you create cues to remind you of your priorities? What helps keep you on target?
