How to Get Your Life Priorities in Order

Sandra The Peoples Coach Rev 1

Client Question

I’m feeling overwhelmed, because I’m pulled in so many directions. It seems like I can’t please anyone or myself.  How do you suggest I start taking back control of my life?

Sandra’s Response

Americans are probably one of the most over-scheduled societies in the world. In my experience, over-crammed lives usually result in lower general life satisfaction because what’s most important is diluted by having too many things competing for limited time. People lead integrated lives, so the best approach in addressing your problem is to evaluate it using a multi-dimensional model, because changes in one life area will certainly impact others.  For instance, if you focus on changing careers or jobs and need to put extra time into the new position to be successful, you’ll likely have to spend less time with family or a favorite hobby.

A life coach can help you identify, assess, and understand how all areas of your life are working together and how to mitigate the natural tensions and challenges of leading a prioritized, well-balanced life. I’d first recommend completing the Wheel of Life to gauge your satisfaction with each life area. A coach can next help you create a vision for each area and understand how all the pieces work together for and against each other. You can then make intentional decisions on priorities and learn to eliminate or release those things that are holding you back from having your most fulfilling life.
