If you were to give yourself a score today, what would it be?
Ask yourself, how purposeful had your day been? Then give yourself a score from one to ten. One being not purposeful and ten being very purposeful.
Ideally, we’d want to live a score of ten daily, but how possible is that? If you can do it, I applaud you. But it’s difficult. Nonetheless, we should strive to live consistently an eight. You see, when we live consistently a higher score, it means that our every day has been lived meaningfully, purposefully, happily, and productively. It means that our days haven’t been wasted. When we live our lives like that, we feel accountable to ourselves. We feel confident. Because we feel that we can be answerable to ourselves and to the people that matter to us.
But when we consistently live a low score, for example a two or a three, our behavior will give off a sense of guilt and embarrassment. After all, that means we haven’t been doing what we are supposed to be doing.
Scoring ourselves isn’t meant to shame us, but to remind us to do better. What do you need to do to achieve a higher score? Exercise? Work hard on your goals and dreams? Attain results that you have set out to attain?
