OH BOY WHAT A FANTASTIC WORD!

Not only does it have the perfect ratio between consonants + vowels, but it’s something we all need more of in our lives. 

It’s simply:

The quality of being coherent, simple and precise.

WHY WE NEED MORE CLARITY:

Often, we do things without a clear goal or purpose in mind. “Yeah I guess I’ll read an article that actually has no relevance to the assignment I need to submit”. “Yeah I guess I’ll give my dog a shower even though he smells gud and I have other things to prioritise.”

heck

Without a plan, the days just fill with blah filler activities. Then I look back on the day like “What did I even do today?”.

Ok, so we need some clarity around the actions we make. 

But JUST AS IMPORTANTLY, we need clarity about ourselves

I.e:

–> What are our actual strengths?

–> What are our limiting subconscious thoughts?

–> Why are we working in this job again? 

–> What are our values? (ie what fulfils us most?)

–> What am we willing to say ‘no’ to?

Once we’re clear on who we are, and why we do things – it’s a whole lot easier to communicate that to others, and set boundaries. 

For example:

I quit my job recently. 

It was a hard decision but I kept asking “Why am I working in this job again?”. I realised it just wasn’t aligned to me and my personality. Of course it took months to finally pluck that duck feather (… analogies confuse me). But had I not taken the time to get more clarity, I would’ve continued to settle. 

HOW TO PRACTICE MORE CLARITY

Ask yourselves these questions. 

1. What am I doing this for?

2. Why am I doing this? 

3. What is one thing I want to improve about myself? 

4. What is one thing that I do pretty damn well? 

5. What % of Phoebe Buffay are you?

 … No seriously 

It just takes a little baby step each time to get more clarity. 

Treat it like a game – what could you find out about yourself?

Here’s to self care!
