Ever breathe relief when cancelling plans? Or feel grateful to reschedule a meeting?
With cancellations and rescheduling, suddenly, you have more freedom in your calendar. It may feel very refreshing.
Humans have a fundamental need for freedom. Frustration in your work environment or in personal relationships sometimes end up being about that independence or autonomy. Organizational leaders and family members alike sometimes wish for more ability to go, do, and be.
On a scale of 1 to 5, how high do you rate your current satisfaction with your own autonomy, freedom, and independence?
This may relate to your ability to work independently or enjoy free time as you wish. For some freedom involves self-expression, or spontaneity. It may mean spontaneously taking a vacation or going for a quick walk around the block or building.
What happens when you do not feel free to go, be, or do as you wish? This discontent or dissatisfaction often flows over into other areas of life as well.
Discontent and dissatisfaction create internal conflict which often leads to external conflict. You may stay where you are or create more satisfaction. The complimentary “Vision Guide” helps you clarify where you are now and what results you wish to create.
You control your calendar. You may schedule “free time” on your calendar for you and transform your experience. This is as important as any other meeting or appointment you may have.
Remember, personal peace creates external peace. What does freedom, independence, autonomy, and self-expression mean to you? What step will you take to meet your need this week?
