Hopefully, you didn’t make a New Year’s Resolution this year and instead created a Personal Manifesto.
What is a personal manifesto? A personal manifesto is a series of present tense statements that embodies your values in reference to who you are and who you aspire to be through God’s grace and power.
While resolutions are pass/fail and sometimes tear you down, manifestos build you up and help you to make positive changes in your life.
Tips for Living Your Priorities
Kathi and Overwhelmed co-author, Cheri Gregory provide three tips for living out your manifesto.
- Microsteps – Small steps when baby steps are too big. Microsteps are useful when each step requires different parts of your brain and totally different functions. Many of us are used to all or nothing thinking and this creates overwhelm. Microsteps breaks the bonds of procrastination and perfectionism.
- Prep and Plan Day – Once a week you reserve time to take care of the business of life. Prep is for the short term – the coming week. Planning is long-term.
- Morning and Evening Routines – Having routines limits the decisions you have to make and helps with overwhelm.
Listen in and learn how you can live your priorities and implement the above steps.
