You may grow and develop as an individual by making adjustments in your life. Being a human is a perpetual state of flux. You have to begin where you are if you want to change anything in your life To properly implement the modification, you need to know where it is. You need a starting point.
In order to determine exactly what has to be altered, it’s important to take a look at your current situation. Many of us aren’t conscious of what we’re doing. First, I ask my clients to keep a food record for a week so that I can get an idea of how much they consume and how much they exercise.
The next week, they talk about how surprised they were to see how much and what they were consuming. In many cases, we’re operating on autopilot and don’t even know what we’re up to. You get a clear image of where you are and what has to be done when you track it.
Most individuals spend 10% more than they earn, according to a study I read a long time ago. In my opinion, this is correct, and the reason for this is because transactions made with a credit card are not logged. I once had a customer who was so busy that she couldn’t get everything done she needed to.
To her dismay, she discovered after a week of tracking her time that she spent a lot of time watching television. Awareness is the first step to change. The first step is to become conscious of what you’re doing and where you are in relation to your goals. An first week or two of tracking will yield vital information that will aid in your efforts to change.
Knowing where you are before embarking on any form of change attempt is essential. When you see an X next to “You are here,” it reminds you of those trip maps with such information. As long as we don’t understand exactly where we are, making the necessary changes will be difficult, if not impossible.
Identifying where you are and where you want to go is the first step in making a change. Log your activities for a few days. This will offer you a clearer picture of what you’re doing and what you may expect from it. In addition to keeping track of how much money you spend, the app can also monitor how many minutes of sleep you receive. The only way to move forward is to understand where you really are.
