Get Real About What Would Bring You the Most Happiness

One thing that’s very sad about how most people enter adulthood is that their own personal satisfaction is never calculated into the journey they should choose. Instead, we make it all about money or prestige.

Your career is not only your financial foundation for life, but it should be the source of one branch of happiness for you. You want to make sure that you are on a career path that not only financially supports the personal life that you dream of, but also delivers warm feelings for you when you are working.

Many people begin avoiding work because of burn out and dissatisfaction with what they are doing. If you notice that you’re spending more time avoiding work and instead immersed in your personal life, it may be a sign that things need to change.

You want to be happy with every waking moment of your life. Of course, that’s not always possible. But negative feelings should never stem from your chosen career path or your inability to manage your time properly so that you are meeting the needs of your business and personal life.

Take a moment to analyze where you are right now. What is it about life that brings you the most happiness? To be honest, it may be your career that makes you happy. Perhaps you love spending your time helping others achieve their goals.

There’s nothing wrong with enjoying work and wanting to devote more time to it. But you can’t let the rest of your life suffer in the process. Whether or not you have personal relationships to nurture, you still need downtime to re-energize and refuel your creativity and dedication to maintaining a quality business.

Sometimes, what makes you happiest in life can be something seemingly insignificant. Maybe you love the moments in the morning when you walk out onto your porch and sit silently with a cup of coffee as you watch the hummingbirds buzz around the feeder.

Think of the little things that you have been unable to do because your time management has not allowed it. Maybe you are scrambling every morning to keep up with business demands, so instead of relaxing on the porch for half an hour, you grab your coffee and head straight to your desk to begin work.

If you notice your happy moments keep slipping away, you have to learn how to get them back into your life. That may mean delegating portions of your business to other people.

Instead of having to rush to your computer to answer emails, an administrative assistant could do it for you. You can hire a freelancer for this and not have to have a full-time employee. Or, you might be able to develop templates and systems that make your processes easier and free up time for you to enjoy life more.
