During 2017 I started to make a list of personal ground rules for myself to live by. I’ve had these written down on My Dreams, Goals and Bucket List page since I’ve thought of them. But they’ve just been sat there.
Whether I have been living by them I couldn’t even say. I’m guilty of forgetting what they even are.
Not really personal than are they?
- Don’t back out of plans or make excuses due to something “better” coming up. Side Note: If I don’t want to go. Don’t agree in the first place.
- Say no to the things that don’t resonate with me / I don’t believe in.
- Share my opinions and concerns.
- Focus on one task at a time
- Schedule ME TIME each week. Stick to it!
- Have Integrity
- Try new things
Here I have 7 ground rules. Reading over them I feel that I am somewhat living by them. But I could be more actively doing so. I feel I need to regularly look to see what they are and if I figure I need to add others, then I should add more.
I know here I’m writing I should do this and I should do that. I don’t want to be doing things I feel I should be doing. Look at ground rule 2; don’t agree to things that don’t resonate with me / I don’t believe in.
I don’t want to have rules I should be following. I want to have these type of things be the sense of the person I am. Get me out of my comfort zone but also being honest and open about who I want to be.
I’ve decided to move the list of ground rules off My Dreams, Goals and Bucket List so that I’ve written about them more on a personal level. As one of my goals on the list is to make personal ground rules, I can now link this post to that goal. Allowing me to refer back to it when I wish.
