Make an evaluation on a sheet-like this one. You may use colors to define the thing that you want to underline.
Consider these key questions:
- How do you choose what things to put on the list with “what you like to do”?
- What things helped you be here where you are? Objectively and subjectively.
- Who were the main people that came into your life and changed it into good?
- What are the things you like to help others with?
- Why are you unsatisfied?
- What is the place you would like to go to?
- What would you like to do more?
- What do you accept to do concerning this?
- Which are the things you do not like in life?
Make a decision whether you will delegate, improve or eliminate the tasks that you do and don’t you don’t like. Or whether you may do them as a secondary task to something else (like listening to audiobooks, reading, or talking to friends over the phone in the meantime). From my experience, some things you might decide to start liking by doing them better, or at the same time with something else. Other, you can successfully delegate.
Give up the tasks you don’t like to do and don’t do. Delegate them or totally eliminate them. They don’t deserve to take up your time.
Make a plan to learn the things you like but don’t do. Chances are, you might improve your skills in those areas by practicing these things you like. You might want to create personal development goals for some of them. For example, for me, it was shooting video.
What is your level of competence in the thing you like?
How much time do you want to allocate for learning it and for practicing it?
What do you have to change in yourself to get that?
Make a list of your level of competence for each of your abilities. Rank the things you wish to learn and create goals for each of them.
