Life Frame

  1. 1. Life Frame
  2. 2. Introduction <ul><li>We live in a world full of activities, goals and things to do. </li></ul><ul><li>Most of the times, it is quite impossible to handle all of our daily activities. </li></ul><ul><li>But we insist on having and accepting more tasks to do. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Introduction <ul><li>And because of that we suffer with stress and that guilty feeling of being irresponsible. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Life Frame - Definition <ul><li>A life frame is simply a collection of “hot spots” that we should invest in. </li></ul><ul><li>It is a simple frame for life, that can help us to spend our time and energy on the right things. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Life Frame - Elements <ul><li>And it is composed of key hot spots: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>mind, body, career, emotions, financial, relationships, and fun. </li></ul></ul>
  6. 6. Life Frame - Benefits <ul><li>The beauty of having a simple frame is that: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>you can balance your life through thick and through thin. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>you can more thoughtfully allocate your time and energy for maximum results. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>when things aren’t going well, you have a tool to help you spot where you are not investing enough. </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. Life Frame - Hot Spots <ul><li>Mind: investing time to learn thinking techniques and keeping your mind sharp. </li></ul><ul><li>Body: investing time in keeping your body in shape (eating, sleeping, and working out). </li></ul><ul><li>Emotions: investing time to keep your emotions healthy (learning skills for feeling good). </li></ul>
  8. 8. Life Frame - Hot Spots <ul><li>Career: optimizing around your job to live your values, get results, find your flow and your lifestyle. </li></ul><ul><li>Financial: investing time to learn patterns and practices for building and sustaining wealth. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Life Frame - Hot Spots <ul><li>Relationships: this includes relationships at home, work, and life. </li></ul><ul><li>Fun: investing time to for play and doing whatever you enjoy. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Hot Spots - Management <ul><li>Set Boundaries (Minimums and Maximums) </li></ul><ul><li>Set minimums and maximums for hot spots that need it. For example, as a starting point, you might set a max on career and a min on relationships, body, and fun. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Hot Spots - Keys <ul><li>Set boundaries to help you prioritize: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The real lesson is that if you don’t first set your boundaries, then you never really have a way to prioritize. For example, if you allocate fifty hours to your career bucket weekly, now you have a rough idea of how much work to bite off to stay within your time budget. Otherwise, you’ll just work until everything’s done, but there’s always something more to do. Priorities, focus, and value are your friends. </li></ul></ul>
  12. 12. Hot Spots - Keys <ul><li>Invest in your relationships. Investing in your relationships can pay back in multiple ways. Your life can quickly get easier, more productive, and fulfilling when you get the people on your side, spend time with people you enjoy, and build a network that supports you. I like to think of my relationships like a Bonsai tree that I have to tune and prune. </li></ul>
  13. 13. Hot Spots - Keys <ul><li>Your network is growing or dying. Remember that people flow in and out of your life. Each week I have lunch with an old friend and a new friend. </li></ul>
  14. 14. What Can Happen When you Don’t Use the Frame
  15. 15. Important <ul><li>You don’t know when you’re done. In other words, you over invest in an area at the expense of others. </li></ul><ul><li>You spend time on the wrong things. It’s easy to spend lots of time on things if you don’t have any gauges to keep you on track. </li></ul>
  16. 16. Important <ul><li>You don’t spend time on what’s important and you forget what actually matter most. </li></ul><ul><li>You don’t know when you’re on track. Without a simple model, it’s tough to stay on track. </li></ul>
  17. 17. Life Frame - Strategies <ul><li>1. List your hot spots. List the hot spots on your whiteboard or a pad of paper. </li></ul><ul><li>2. Identify how much time you’re spending in each hot spot. Simply identify how much time you’re spending already. </li></ul>
  18. 18. Life Frame - Strategies <ul><li>3. Evaluate your current investments. Take a look across your portfolio and evaluate your current investments in time and energy </li></ul><ul><li>4. Reallocate your investments. If you’re on track, great. If not, try increasing your investment in some area and lowering in another. </li></ul>
