One Page Miracle

I suppose everyone's noticed that my posting has been a little sparse—only one post in between Fridays instead of two. And I've been pretty absent from the comments.

I'm just finishing up a big deadline at work, so I'll be able to spend more time here. I have that pleasant "all the time in the world" feeling that one gets after finishing something big. (Of course, I most certainly don't have all the time in the world, especially not when it comes to Christmas shopping.)

Today's article is not about Filofaxes in the physical sense, but about something that you might do on a page in your Filofax. There's an exercise called the One Page Miracle, promoted by, among others, Dr. Daniel Amen as a way to get your life in better focus—quick. And it only takes one page (like, perhaps, an A5 or Personal Filofax page).

What you do is take a single sheet of paper and, without overthinking, write down what you want in each area of your life. Here's one possible format:

One-Page Miracle
What Do I Want for My Life?

Name:
Date:

RELATIONSHIPS
Spouse/Lover:
Children:
Extended Family:
Friends:

WORK AND EDUCATION
I want to do:
I want to be:
I want to know:

MONEY (for needs, wants, and security)
Short term:
Long term:

MYSELF
Body:
Mind:
Spirit:
Emotions:

Too simple for the folks at Franklin Covey, perhaps, but sometimes the first words that come to mind are the real truth. And it fits in your Filofax!
