Reactive Life Syndrome
Do you suffer from “reactive life syndrome”? When we’re maniacally busy, constantly checking things, we die a death of a thousand to do’s…
After opening his talk at World Domination Summit 2016 with this, Jonathan Fields of the Good Life Project definitely had me leaning in.
He believes busyness is a symptom of a reactive life, and suggests that these are the five keys to creating a good life:
- Be intentional. A good life is created. Choose how you want to spend your time and who you want to spend it with.
- Be open. When you’re open to possibility the world is your oyster. The future favors the open, so don’t apologize for being open!
- Be kind. Giving can change our physiology in positive ways. Givers glow.
- Be you. Be unapologetically joyful, and unapologetically YOU!
- Be still. Magic comes from hitting pause. Whether you take a one-week sabbatical every seven weeks, or spend time at the end of your day reflecting, cultivate stillness. Stillness cultivates awareness.
A good life isn’t a place you get it; it’s the life we live daily. What kind of life will YOU live?
