Hi, I’m SuAh – a recovering Type A control freak, a quintessential high-achiever – you know, the do-it-all perfectionist, who makes it look easy but in reality is too busy to even realize she’s not doing what matters most. That was me.
In fact, I’m not even sure I knew what mattered most because I had spent so much time doing the things that mattered to other people. I was achieving the goals that other people applauded – when I was growing up it was good grades, community service, and extracurricular activities, when I was a little older it was getting a degree, then a good job, promotions, a higher salary, you know the story – but while I was doing what was expected, I wasn’t taking the time to figure out what I wanted or what I valued. Even more, I hadn’t figured out what I was passionate about or purposed for.
Then, my perfectly planned life fell apart.
No matter what I tried, I couldn’t get it back on track. Eventually, I had to let go and rethink what it was that I actually wanted. What mattered? What was success? What did I want to do with my life? and, more importantly, what was I meant to do with my life?
In answering these questions, I created a roadmap for living life on PURPOSE, and I reframed the goal-getting strategies and consistency creating habits I had created to help me fulfill my new goals rather than achieve other people’s definition of success.
It’s time to break up with busy and begin to create the life that we deserve. It starts today, together.
