Why You Should Design Your Life
Time Magazine reports findings from the Harris Poll, which has conducted happiness surveys for many years, and of the 2202 Americans surveyed in 2017, only 33% said they were happy, in 2016 that number was only 31%.
“Distraction and a lack of control may be part of the reason why only about a third of Americans say they are happy,” says John Gerzema, CEO of the Harris Polls.
Choosing to shape your own life, to design the life you want to live, provides you with the power and capacity to achieve your dreams. Deliberate design and planning of your best life means you can proactively choose among the best possible options, you can achieve your dreams, and you have control over what happens to you and what you do in life.
Your greatest life cannot happen by accident.
Shaping your life is a process that follows many principles, but ultimately, it is about taking the time to discover what you believe at your core and what you really want to achieve in life, then designing a plan to help you reach all your dreams.
This process guides you through consideration of all the important aspects of life, not just your job or your financial future, and helps you identify all the many components of a happy, healthy life.
What The Science Shows
Patrick Hill, an assistant professor of psychology at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada, evaluated data from the Midlife in the United States (MIDUS) study.
They looked at how more than 6,000 study participants answered questions such as, “Some people wander aimlessly through life, but I am not one of them,” and others that aimed to gauge both negative and positive emotions.
The results showed that fourteen years after the survey questions were answered, those study subjects who reported “a greater sense of purpose and direction in life were more likely to outlive their peers.” In fact, people with a sense of purpose had a 15 percent lower risk of early death, compared with those who said they were more or less aimless. And it didn’t seem to matter when people found their direction. It could be in their 20s, 50s or 70s.” (1)
In 1979, Harvard Business School began a study on goal achievement where MBA graduates were asked if they had designed a roadmap for goal achievement by writing down their goals and creating a plan for attaining them.
- Just 3% of the graduating class wrote down their financial goals along with a plan to achieve those goals.
- 13% of the class had written goals but without an action plan to achieve them.
- The remaining 84% of the class had set no specific financial goals or plans.
Fast-forward to 1989, the study subjects were contacted and revealed their progress in life.
- The 13% of the class which had written goals but not developed a game plan for achieving them were making twice as much money as the 84% group which had no identifiable goals in mind.
- More importantly, the 3% of graduates who wrote down their goals and designed a game plan were making a staggering 1,000% more money than the 84% group, and 500% more than the 13% segment.
This shows the incredible power of living by design.
When you design your life, you allow yourself to explore and connect with the many facets of life that bring you joy, meet your needs, and ignite your interests and passions. It is a deliberate and proactive approach to living that places the control firmly in your grasp and allows you to gain everything you want.
