The Importance of Physical Reminders

Our lives are so crazy that it's easy to forget what matters. This is why I love physical reminders of things you want to change or value.  A few examples:

  • I want to be more monk-like. I bought a beaded bracelet that I can only wear once I've set the day's priorities and cleared the non-essential off my plate. 

  • I finally hung my 18 for 2018 above my desk. I swear in only a week, I had forgotten some! This spurred action. 

  • In my kitchen, I have a quote board which I change out regularly.  Right now? "Remember when you wanted what you currently have."  So easy to forget! 

  • A friend has a sheet with bubbles representing the number of days he has between now and 70. Each day he fills one in to remind himself that life is all too short. 

What clever ways do you remind yourself of your values and goals?  What do you need to create physical reminders of in your life right now?  #feelgood
