Designing a Life with Purpose – Part 2

In my last post I referred to Dr Fred Grosse and his concept of “10’s”. A 10 is something we love to do each day. I will now share  the rest of these “numbers”with you .

A “25” is something we like to do regularly but not every day – maybe every fortnight or once a month.

My list of these includes going to the movies, going to a show, dinner out, manicure and a range of other treatments, dinner with friends, time with family, having a drink at my favorite bar overlooking the ocean, reading a good book.

A “50” is something you would do once or twice a year. These are special events and you should have a long list so you can work your way through them. My list includes time with my family (we are spread around the country) and a long list of overseas travel I still want to do. I have on there things like;
•    Christmas in New York (I live in Australia and our Christmas is very hot).
•    Turkey
•    Alaskan cruise
•    Greek Island cruise
•    Taking my husband to London (I lived there for a while but he has never been)

Hundreds are the same activities as 50’s BUT they are tax deductible. For example I am building a Networking Business with a goal to build it globally so that I can travel with my business.

I encourage you to make a list of your 10’s, 25’s, 50’s and 100’s.

Dr Fred said to us “if you spend all your time earning your living – when do you have time for your life?”

Make your list and please let me know some of your 10,25,50 and 100’s. I always love hearing what makes someone’s heart sing.

    Nowadays, people tend to focus too much on earning a living and forget how to live. These people may have a good reason for doing so. However, it’ll be a shame when the time comes that they’re already old and will not be able to do the things they want to do in life. It’s like life just passed them by. Having a list is a good idea. It puts things into perspective.

      Adam I agree with you that too many people are focused only on making a living. We can make a good living and have life too. It just takes planning and being mindful of how we are spending our time.
