Lifestyle Practices

This is Part 9 in the series on The Power of a Focused Life that I’m doing for the members of shawnblanc.net.

Last Weekly Briefly we talked about defining the vision for our life. And since then, on Shawn Today, I’ve talked about Life goals and Action Plans. If you want to follow along with each daily episode, you can sign up for a membership which is $4/month.

Today, I’m talking about Lifestyle Practices. This topic is, to me, one of the most important issues of my life. I have a personal commitment to live with intentionality in as many areas of my life as I can. I want to be intentional in how I raise my boys, I want to be intentional about building meaningful relationships with my spouse and my finances, I want to be intentional about the creative work I do, about how I spend my time, how I spend my money, what my diet is, and more.

It’s just so easy to coast, you know? And I think a lot of people don’t make intentional choices because they are afraid. Afraid that they’ll be unable to make a meaningful change to their life. Afraid that they will fail at something important. Or afraid that we will lose everything.

Implement daily habits and living with intentionality sounds intense — and it is — but it’s worth it.
