Ideally, take a couple of hours (or at least 15 minutes) each month
to look at the bigger picture of your life and ask the Smart Review
These questions focus on balance, personal and spiritual development, strategic goals and rejuvenation. Look at the larger perspective of your weeks and month instead of the reactive minutes.
Be open to any little gems floating around your consciousness. Inspiration and intuition often bring powerful new ideas to us very subtly, very quietly. When you become aware of being teased by an idea, capture it and follow it!
When we are willing to step from the known to the unknown, we learn more about ourselves and about life. We expand our horizons. Our fears are all that holds us back. Move into new territory regularly and life becomes rich.
You will only achieve success and fulfillment if you make the effort to choose what you want and then move forward to get it. If you want something, you have to set the wheels in motion. No one but you can achieve your goals.
