Choices are clues

My choices not only determine my priorities, plans, and results — they are also clues about what matters to me.

My choices are not to be taken lightly in the grand scheme of things, and they are not merely a means to an end but a revealing window into my deepest values and priorities. I try to be awake for these things.

My choices reflect my most actual desires, beliefs, and convictions. For instance, if I find myself toiling late into the night, it indicates that my professional aspirations are paramount. On the other hand, investing time in nurturing a relationship suggests that my connections with others take precedence.

My choices signify what I am willing to sacrifice and unwilling to compromise on. Each option carries weight, shaping my life and contributing to my personal growth and development (or lack thereof). Therefore, I must be intentional and mindful of my choices, for they hold the power to mold the person I aspire to become. I do aspire.

Again, being awake to think of each choice this way is essential for me.

What about you? Do your choices reflect who you are and what matters to you now?
