Daily Personal Retreat Guide
Get more from your day with a 5 – 10 minute planning and review retreat
If we want our lives to be meaningful, then we must make each day meaningful.
If we have goals, we need to do something to move towards our goals every day.
We can’t put this off until tomorrow!
It doesn’t have to take a lot of time. We can invest in ourselves in only 5 - 10 minutes per day. In that short time, we can quickly reflect on how our life is unfolding and choose what we most want. We’ll then carry that awareness and intention into our day.
Claim your power to take charge. Choose what you want and make it happen. Learn to say ‘no’ to reduce the demands, interruptions and busyness in your life. Spot and eliminate your time wasters. Focus on awareness, efficiency, decision making and handling tensions.
For best results, set a specific time of day for a brief review. Ideally, do a mini planning retreat in the morning (AM) and a mini review retreat in the late afternoon or evening (PM).
