As a Life Coach, I look at the whole person. I try not to ask broad questions such as “How are you?” 98% of people answer, “Good.” The 2% that don’t answer that way, tend to say something like, “Do you want a real answer?” or “How long do you have?” or “Fine, I guess.” I grew up with believing that when most people answer “Fine,” they really mean “F.I.N.E.” standing for Fouled-up, Insecure, Neurotic, and Emotional. Furthermore, I believe that anyone answering “Fine” may only be one part of the acronym, but listen closely to other people and you will see what I mean. Probably every person walking the planet today seeks more joy, fulfillment, and/or excellence in at least one area of life. And it is probably impossible to improve every area at the same time without some sort of structure or game for yourself.
Try this exercise for one week: Pick an area you would like to improve, write three new daily actions you can take in that area, and keep track of whether you perform the daily actions. Reassess the area at the end of the week. For example, I would like to eat more healthfully. My three daily objectives are: 1. pack food from home, 2. don’t eat in the car, 3. eat a salad everyday. I can easily track if I did those things each day and make adjustments for the next day.
