Find Your Life of 5

Find Your Life of 5

Ready to get overwhelmed? Think about all the distractions you face on a day-to-day basis:

  • Work responsibilities
  • School
  • Friends
  • Family
  • Phone notifications
  • TikTok
  • Reddit
  • TV shows and movies
  • Chores
  • Paying Bills
  • YouTube Rabbit holes
  • Emails
  • Spam calls
  • Filing taxes
  • Finding time to do something you love and brings you true joy

Let's stop there. I could feel my heartbeat picking up.

Every day we face challenges, responsibilities, and an infinite amount of noise that steals from the most critical resource in our life. Time. 

Have you ever started your morning inspired, ready to accomplish a goal, or excited about what the day might hold just to find yourself mindlessly scrolling your phone or watching a show feeling numb? That is the feeling of emotional white noise.

It's all around, constantly fighting for our attention. It is the most determined adversary that is never satisfied. Picture an emo-energizer bunny.

The only way to fight this little furry beast is to have a way to filter all the distractions quickly it throws your way. This filter is your Life of 5.

Five pillars of attention that give a truly fulfilled life.

These pillars are different for everyone. For example, my pillars are:

  • Financial Security
  • Physical Protection
  • Organization
  • Hobbies
  • Truth

Activities that fall within one of these 5 categories are important to me and worth the time expenditure I give them. Any activity that falls outside of these five pillars is a dirty thief and deserves a swift and harsh punishment. I'm talking medieval punishment.

By having this list, I can quickly stop myself from doom-scrolling Reddit because that does not bring me joy or fulfill my purpose in life. Without this comparison, I would find myself letting noise run my life and ending the day feeling hollow and numb.

Identify your Life of 5 right now. write it down on a post-it and carry it around with you. Get in the habit of constantly challenging how you spend your time and see if you are living your best life or if you are a slave to the emo-bunny.
