Make an evaluation on a sheet like this one. You may use colors to define the thing that you want to underline.

G5-I like doing-im good at

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.

What 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?

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 the friends over the phone in the meantime). From my experience, some things you might decide upon 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 on 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.

  1. […] If at this point you stay satisfied by earning a fixed income no matter how much you work and don’t save much, chances are you won’t ever break out of this financial vicious circle. Of course, one of the labor market related skills I was writing about in the previous points is financial intelligence (that is, if you haven’t learned it until college). Getting resources means making more than you spend, saving up or investing the difference, so that you have profit, not debt. Based on your choices, you can increase, maintain or decrease your freedom. In this step, increasing financial intelligence through personal study, consulting and training or even coaching definitely counts. This is an appropriate moment to get aware that you can’t do everything and delegate what you can afford and don’t know too well/like too much. You may also use this tool. […]
