Life Change: Don’t change your life. Improve it!
Change your life. Change your diet. Change your relationship. Change. Change. Change. We’re bombarded with the urge to change. While some changes are relatively easy to drive, the other ones make us dizzy. Instead of implementing never-ending changes, it might be more effective to keep improving gradually some aspects of our life.
What’s the difference between change and improvement?
Change’s useful as far as negative habits are concerned. If you need to eliminate something which is harmful to you. While improvement doesn’t impose any particular shift in your current behavior or thought pattern. Improvement brings a progressive enhancement into your daily activities. What you do takes a different shape.
It’s like with eating sweets. You don’t have to give up on them if you don’t feel like doing this. But you can eat the ones which contain less sugar or you can start to eat dry fruits with natural sugars. Or you don’t have to quit watching TV if you don’t feel like doing this. But you can add a few minutes of abdomen exercises to your TV sessions.
Say, you want to change a job, but you don’t find any appealing opportunity to go for it. Or you cannot afford to change your job for certain reasons. However, you can include a new activity to your daily plan. The one which brings you satisfaction and helps you develop in a new area. You can propose to be the owner of a new idea, a new strategy, a new project. It may lead you to places you’ve never expected to be within the current scope of responsibilities.
Reinvent yourself by enriching your existing habits or preferences. Not all of them have to be changed. At least not at the same time. If something doesn’t click, it doesn’t have to mean it should be immediately replaced by something else. Sometimes, it’s enough to repair one piece or to make it shine.
Redefine yourself by implementing small actions to strengthen what’s can be better utilized. Sometimes you don’t have to change totally the color of walls in your place if the existing ones started to bother you. You can change their tint. It might turn out you needed only to brighten the ambiance, but you actually appreciate the colors themselves.
Refine yourself by giving repetitive tasks a better taste. Maybe you cannot avoid particular duties, but you can make sure you perform them in a more creative atmosphere. While doing something which doesn’t require your full attention, play a piece of inspiring music, podcast or language lesson. It’s like pouring a dry meal with a tasty sauce.
By trying every day your life improves.
