Brighten Up Your Life!
A Priority Management Exercise
Our daily lives are full of responsibilities and priorities. What are the bright spots in your life? Enjoy those and, perhaps, make them even brighter. What spots need brightening to bring you greater happiness and fulfillment? You can work on those once you know where they are. Take a few minutes with the sunflower below and brighten up your life!
Part 1: Score your sunflower petals.
Review the 8 categories in the Sunflower thinking briefly what a happy, satisfying life might look like for you in each area.
Draw a line across each segment that represents your happiness score for each area.
IMPORTANT: Use the FIRST number (score) that pops into your head, not the number you think it should be!
Part 2: Look at your completed sunflower and reflect on these questions.
Where does your life need brightening up?
What surprised you about your sunflower happiness scores?
How do you feel about your life as you look at your sunflower?
What is missing from your life right now?
Which of these areas would you most like to improve?
How could you find space in your life to make these changes?
What help and cooperation from others might you need to make these changes and brighten up your life?
What is key area you want to work on first?
Part 3: Choose actions.
