Personal Growth: Review your life (TED talk)

This is a guest post written by frequent contributor B.Positive.

How often do you review your life, goals, values, priorities? How often do you pop your head up above the daily grind to look at where you’ve been (and what you’ve learned) and where you’re headed? I often like to watch TED videos and at least review what they’ve shared and try to implement it in at least a tiny way to improve my life. If we can do this once a week every week for  year, you’ll be amazed at how much the quality of your life can improve with such little effort.

My 25th birthday passed last week and it seemed no better a time than to evaluate my life as a whole and see where I want to go next. Although the near and short term goals are not clear, I know that I want to continue exploring, meeting people, and learning what makes people happy and helping others find it in themselves. How, when, and where I’ll do this – I’m not yet sure, but I know that this is something I’d truly enjoy doing and could spend a life doing.

Is it about time you looked at your life? There’s no better time to do this than now. There’s no better person to do this than you (yourself). There’s no bigger regret than a life wasted. (

Just a short post that is hopefully a welcome change to the all of the points speak.
