Starting My 30s

I recently turned 30, and to be honest it scared the shit out of me for the past year. In my mind, I feel like I should be further along in my goals than I am at my age. I also have this feeling like my clock is ticking faster than I want. The nice thing is that it has given me perspective of life that I have never had before.

We all know that life is short and at any moment ours could be over. It didn’t really feel realistic to me until I turned 30. I know that I am hopefully not even half way through my life, but it has made me realize I need to do more today. I need to make sure that I am living everyday or almost everyday to it’s fullest potential. I have so much potential in me that I don’t want to be wasted if something were to happen. I need to keep myself more accountable for my daily actions, so I wanted a way to review my habits.

One thing I have been trying to do is every month on the day of my birth (the 16th), then I review how the previous month had gone. I write down any improvements I made and what more things I can do to keep improving. For some reason, doing it on the 16th instead of the beginning of the month resonates more with me. It may be since it is another month into my 30s that I am, I’m not really sure. Overall, I think this is a good thing to do at least monthly to keep yourself in check. It is beneficial for us to keep inventory of our habits to make sure we are always improving. I know for a fact, that my 1st month of being 30 was not good at all. I’m glad I was keeping track of my habits because after that month I was able to think of why I wasn’t keeping up with my habits.

A speaker that Shaun and I saw, Matt Vincent, has a jar of marbles for every week that he believes he has left in his life. That is another way to visualize how much or little of time we have left on Earth. I find this a very interesting tactic, but it would scare me too much watching those marbles go down, and I don’t know if it would help me complete my goals. Everyone’s minds are different, so if you think this would be a better option for you, then go for the gold.

Either way, don’t wait until you turn 30 to keep yourself more accountable. No matter what you should have a journal, habit tracker or anything that you need to do daily. If you don’t keep track everything daily then you will never remember everything you need to. I forget somethings minutes after I think about it, so I shouldn’t trust myself to remember what I did a week later. So, have a daily tracker of some sort.

Keep improving yourselves and keep pushing towards your goals!
