And just when you thought it was time to put away the bucket and spade…
In the past when I considered the notion of doing things in my life that are ‘deep and meaningful’ I often thought that I might need to be more of a soul searcher/philosopher/deep thinker in order to satisfy that pursuit. I therefore had a get-out clause and could spend my life doing lots of meaningless and time wasting things and blame the fact that I didn’t know any better. I wasn’t gifted with the inner wisdom of tapping in to my insights and making informed decisions that would be deep and meaningful.
Little did I know at the time that all I needed was a decent sized bucket and a heavy duty spade.
Let’s start with the DEEP piece of deep and meaningful
Well, this is where the spade comes in – it’s for digging deep. You can’t pursue “meaningful” unless you dig deep first! Dig until you connect with a feeling that makes you want to get off your seat and take action.
Imagine that you have a power cable below the surface and when you hit the cable you can tap into the raw energy that fuels and optimises your potential to do deep and meaningful things.
It’s the work you need to do before you make things happen. It’s about digging deep and connecting fully with your truth – your purpose, your values, what makes you feel happy, what do you enjoy doing?, what makes you feel great after you’ve done it?, what moves you? Consider the actions you take that give you the best rewards – the ones that make you feel proud to be you – the ones that make you feel whole and worthy. It’s this raw rich information you need to collect.
So next the MEANINGFUL
Well this is where the bucket comes in, it’s for holding all the actions and events that you do that are meaningful. Once you have dug deep and found them – you need to collect them in your bucket. Focus on filling this bucket during August . Fill it with things you have made happen that are meaningful – not things you want to do – but things you have done. Make an August bucket list – the things you want to do before September starts then dig deep and make them happen.
