Almost every day is a day set aside to celebrate something. Usually, it is a cause or a particular food being honored. The celebration for Thursday, October 19 is different. It is not about something else. It is all about you. It is a time to determine what's going on in your own life because it is Evaluate Your Life Day. In case you haven't evaluated your life in a long time, now you have a special day to do so.

Origin of the day

This particular day was designed by to encourage people to take the time to check in on themselves.

Some people are so busy these days that they don't know whether they are going or coming. They might not know whether they are on the right track or not because they don't stop to take inventory of what's going on with them and with those things that concern them. It is extremely important to stop from time to time and evaluate your life to determine what's going right and what things need improvement. Even if things are going great, people still need to know that.

How to evaluate your life

Even though it is not hard to evaluate your life, people tend to put it off because they dread doing it.

They tend to neglect setting goals and writing a mission statement for their own lives even though they might do it on their job for the company they work for.

The best way to evaluate your life is to think of it like a pie with various parts. Each piece will represent a slice of your life. Determine how you are doing physically, mentally, socially, spiritually, educationally, and financially. Once you evaluate the individual components and see how they relate to each other, then you are better able to see your life as a whole.

If after evaluating your life and you have determined that some things need to be changed, then change them one slice at a time. People often fail and give up if they try to make changes in all areas at once. It is better to work on the area of your life that needs the most attention first and move on to the next area.

Do what needs to be done to get your life back on the right track. Doing something on Evaluate Your Life Day will be a very good start.

The first step will probably be the hardest, but once you get started, you will find that the process becomes easier. It would be very helpful to put things in writing so when you do your next evaluation, and you will have a record of where you were and where you intend to go. Of course, you do not have to wait until next October 19 to chart your progress.
