The Spiritual Audit-Week 2

We live in a world where we try to control and plan everything. We are overscheduled and celebrate “busyness”.   As a result we often deal with emotions such as fear, worry, doubt and overthinking.  This portion of the Life Audit is about identifying ways to enjoy life right now no matter what the circumstances may be. It is about discovering what makes us feel alive.

The Character Audit-Week 1

Character is defined as the mental and moral qualities distinctive to an individual. This week as part of the Life Audit, we will be examining our character. Our Character is the foundation of who we are and I thought it was important to audit this area of our lives first. Who are you? What do you believe? What morals and standards do you have? This is a time for reflection. Think about the very core of who you are and how you want to live your life.

A Life Audit is an exercise in self-reflection that helps you uncovers the real themes and core values that drive and inspire you. Consider it “spring cleaning” for the soul.

As someone who works in finance, I know firsthand the value of audits in the banking world. They provide a snapshot of your current condition and highlight areas of improvement. Why wouldn’t I preform an audit on my life?
