I think the most simple advice I ever got was to make sure I’m spending my time in alignment with my goals and values. So articulating the goals and my values came first and then setting up my time to align to them came next. For example, if meeting someone is a priority but I don’t make time for dating because I’m saying yes to everything at work, then I need to be honest with myself about whether I really want that relationship or not. Making time each week to volunteer was aligned to my values of giving back but I catch myself getting too into work or other things, so the time/goals/values check in really helps me to make sure I’m spending my time how I really want to…

Love - if it’s important to you, make sure to make time for dating and go into dates with an open mind. Career - as long as your mental and physical health are good and you are spending enough time fostering relationships with family/friends/dating, my advice is to grind hard now. If and when you get married and have kids it’s hard to prioritize your career, so lean in when you are young and single. That’s what I did and it paid dividends when I had kids and was ready to cash out for a cushy gig. Health - find your thing. Mine is hot yoga sculpt. Yours might be running, cycling, hiking, etc.

Am I missing anything here or is this actually doable?
