4 Tips for Designing Your Life 2020

‘Designing your life’ can be a somewhat esoteric and vague phrase, particularly if you’re young or just starting out in your profession. In layman’s terms, it’s the systematic utilization of aspects in your environment to realize long-term routines as close to your dream scenario as humanly possible.

In that spirit, we have listed several pointers serving as practical, inspirational signposts for you to consider as you design your life in 2020.

1. What is Missing in Your Day-In, Day-Out Life?

If the answers to these questions aren’t immediate, consider something radical. Explore a new religious experience, plan a trip overseas, volunteer at a local charity, pursue a hobby you never thought could be a career.

Sometimes not knowing where you are going makes you wind up exactly where you belong. “Not all those who wander are lost.” – J.R.R. Tolkien

Help a stranger on the street. You’d be surprised at how much you’ll learn about yourself through interaction and reflection via other people.
