It’s easier to count the number of employees, your account balances, or the number of clients and feel like you’re winning at the game of life. Life isn’t a game though.
More means that we are winning, right?
What if we’re accumulating the wrong things?
Generosity, joy, peace, self-control, connection, vulnerability, humility; those are things we can’t have too much of.
To get the life you want you must measure what matters and then work to grow those things.
What You Can Measure
How many times you compliment your spouse.
How many times an employee says thank you for their job.
How many times you help around the house.
How many times you tell your child you love them.
How many days you come home on time from work.
How many hours of sleep you get.
How many times you make a stranger smile.
How often you pray for your enemies.
How many friends you can call to say simply, “I appreciate you.”
If You’re In a Slump
Slumps can happen when we’re measuring the wrong things. What we measure is what matters to us.
If you’re in a slump then it’s nice to see you, I’m in one too. It happens to the best of us.
Measure the right things. It’s the key to a worthwhile life.
