Knowing how you actually want to feel is the most potent form of clarity that you can have. Generating those feelings is the most powerfully creative thing you can do with your life.
We all want to live a meaningful, satisfying life. But we’ve been trained to measure our value with socialized quantifiables—grades, dollars, things, pounds, likes. Then we go after the stuff we think we should want and we hope that we’ll be fulfilled when we get there. We have the procedures of “success” backwards. And it’s burning us out.
How do you want to feel …
…when you look at your schedule for the week?
…when you get dressed in the morning?
…when you walk through the door of your office?
…when you pick up the phone?
… when you cash the check?
… when you fall in love?
… when you accept the award?
…when you make the sale?
What if, first, we got clear on how we actually wanted to feel in our life and then we laid out our intentions? What if your most desired feelings consciously informed how you plan your day, your year, your career, your holidays—your life?
Do you know what will happen with that kind of inner clarity and outer action? You’ll feel the way you want to feel more often than not. Decisions will be easier to make; you’ll know what to say no to and what to say “hell yes” to. You’ll be more optimistic, more open-hearted. It will be easier for you to return to your center in the midst of a challenge.
FEELINGS FIRST, then strategy. Because when we choose from our hearts, we make much better choices. Compassionate, generous, inclusive choices. Choices that are considerate of our sensitivities, our gifts, and each other—and the earth.
