You Can Always Change Your Mind 🙂

Hope you had a good week testing things out as inspired by last week’s email.

 

It’s a short but personal one today – I’m revealing my 2019 vision board first time ever on the Internet. Keep scrolling.

Today in 3 minutes or less, you’ll learn:

✔️ A quick, free mood-booster

✔️ Whether you truly walk the talk

✔️ How vision board changed my life, and my view on annual goal-setting

Doable ideas 💭

0 cost, foolproof way to boost your mood (esp. during winter):

 

Soak up some sunshine as a midday reset.

Reflections 🪞

Look at your calendar last week.

 

Did you act according to your principles and values?

 

How could you have behaved differently?


Mindfulness 🧘🏻‍♀️

As we’re approaching mid-year, I want to talk about goal-setting and reflection again.

 

Here’s a big lesson I learnt in the past 3 months:

 

Be okay with changing your goals.

 

Changing your mind, really.

 

To me, the annual vision = general direction.

 

There are many ways to get to the destination (all roads lead to Rome, they say…).

 

Here’s a personal example 5 years ago – I’ve never shared this publicly:

I created this vision board in February 2019.

 

At that time, I had never heard of music therapy. I was stuck in the accounting industry. I just finished reading the “4-Hour Work Week” and I was deep in the quarter-life crisis.

 

I knew what I didn’t want – my current situation.

 

But the ga between reality and the ideal unknown was huge.

 

4 months after I compiled the vision board, my whole world shattered.

 

I learnt about music therapy when I was least expecting it.

 

2 years later, I graduated and became a music therapist.

 

Apart from owning a household hedgehog (it’s illegal in Australia), I’ve achieved all my goals from my 2019 vision board.

 

Okay, the financial freedom part is pretty far-fetched, but you get my point – I have a career I enjoy and give a damn about.

 

Vision sets the direction.

 

Vision sets you in motion.

 

Let’s pause for a moment.

 

Be honest with yourself – what life do you want to be living in 6-12 months’ time?

 

It might not be what you planned 6 months ago. And that’s okay.

 

You can always reset, ditch the old habit, and build new ones.

 

Leave situations that don’t serve you.

 

You are fluid and flexible.

 

Keep moving.

 

Sometimes it’s not easy to admit you’re not on track with your goals.

 

I have my quarterly goal Notion page opened on my laptop daily, and it hurts to see how things don’t go as planned.

 

Especially when I felt low and unmotivated.

 

But this is life. There is only so much in my control.

 

Pick your season.

 

What area do you need to focus on in the next 90 days?

 

What area can you loosen the grip of?

 

If you decided to stick to your goals after reading this, know that you still have a week before end of June to try your best 😉

Ideas Worth Pondering 🧠

Creativity has more to do with the authentic desire to express, and less to do with the art form itself.
