Yes, you read it correctly.  If you are feeling unmotivated, stuck and confused about your next step in life, schedule a meeting with yourself.  I don’t mean sit and think in your head about what to do next.  I mean schedule a date and time for your self-meeting and do the following:


  • Create an agenda
  • Create tasks
  • Assign deadline to tasks
  • Commit to the tasks
  • Schedule a follow up meeting


Going into your meeting, be sure to have an open mind and check your positivity level.  Good ideas tend to have problems penetrating brick walls.  The meeting is designed to help you reach your next plateau and build awareness of your inner self.  The meeting will help you achieve the following:


  • Review your current situation
  • Help identify strengths and weaknesses
  • Identify areas for change
  • Design a plan of action
  • Implement plan for change
  • Build self-motivation
  • Set continual goals


  1. Now I know that we should not judge an article by the word count. In a few words, this post makes a great impact if followed. It shows an actual outline to follow. It is down to earth and does not waste the reader’s time too. I think this is one way to focus or re-focus in this busy world.

    Very helpful article!

    1. Val, you make a great point about not wasting the reader’s time. It’s important to keep the reader engaged and at the same time give them what they are looking for. Thanks for the feedback, I really appreciate it.

  2. Great post. Good advice and a clear description on how to proceed and follow up. We all get into those ruts from time to time and need to, as you have suggested in your post here have a meeting with yourself. I for one plan to take your advice and try to implement it into my routine. Thank you.

    1. Hi Frank, it helps when I see my plan in writing and it really helps when I see my plan progress as I’m checking off completed items. Thanks for stopping by and good luck with your meetings.

  3. Hi Diane,
    I think this is a great idea! I think that we don’t spend enough time with ourselves to make sure that we have all that we need. Having an agenda is definitely helpful but it’s also important to set realistic goals as well.
    Thanks for sharing this, and I’m about to go and schedule my own meeting with myself.

    1. Yes, often times we lose focus and need a clear strategy for getting back on track. I’m constantly having meeting with myself. Guess what??? It works!!! It especially boost me up when I see a plan in writing. Thanks for stopping by and good luck with your meetings.
