Are You Clear?


Imagine your life where you have even more time to do the things you love and make the greatest impact. In your pursuit of success, you may often overlook your most valuable asset: time. Without consciously protecting and managing your time, your mind will become cluttered, leaving little room for clarity and decision-making with intention. 

The Importance of Protecting Time

How you choose to spend your time directly impacts your mental clarity. By protecting your time, you will create the mental space needed to process information, reflect on your goals, and make love-based decisions. When your mind is clear, you will focus even more on what truly matters, both in your work life and non-work life. 

You have read in our Discoveries for the Driven email in the past about Discipline #1: 10-Year Thinking, where you will shift your mindset from short-term thinking to thinking in 10-year timeframes. This exercise involves envisioning what your life looks like ten years from now. It’s important for you to have a clear mind while developing your 10-year thinking vision. This clarity ensures that you listen to your heart, deeply, to guide you. In addition, if you have a significant other in your life, include them in this process to ensure that you are both aligned on the path you want to take together.

Creating Your 10-Year Vision

Developing a 10-Year Vision is not about crafting a rigid plan but about setting a direction that guides your daily actions. This vision can take various forms: a single sentence, bullet points, or a vivid story. The key is to approach this exercise with a clear mind, free from the distractions and noise of daily life.

When your mind is clear, you can consider your long-term outlook even more thoughtfully. Think about what you want your life to look like in ten years and how you can take steps today to move towards that vision. Remember, this vision should be flexible and serve as a guide rather than a fixed endpoint.

Embracing Clarity and Letting Go of the Outcome

While it’s powerful for you to have a vision, it’s equally important not to attach too rigidly to the outcome. Use your 10-year thinking vision as a guide to inform your actions today, but remain open to changes and new opportunities that may arise. This approach allows you to stay focused on your long-term goals while being adaptable and resilient.

Clarity in your vision helps you make better decisions in the present moment. When you are clear, every decision becomes easier. This clarity also will reduce your stress and anxiety, as you are no longer reacting to immediate pressures but are proactively shaping your path.
