Living Your Best Life

Blog by Beth Montpas, Life Coach

I keep getting asked this question…

How are you so damn happy all the time?

I’m about to tell you one of my secrets.

It’s a recipe that I’ve been using since college.

I plan my life. I am a nut for having multiple calendars to track all the fun, the work, the everything that I get to do (and be) in this one and only precious life...

For me, nothing is by chance. There’s a large amount of INTENTIONAL in my life to keep away the regrets.

My fav planner is the Passion Planner (this is not a sales pitch just sharing!) I love it because each day has a focus. Each week has a focus. I track good things that happened. I have personal to-do lists and work to-do lists.

At the end of each month I reflect back and see what worked/what didn’t work. I get to tweak the coming month. This reflection piece has the biggest effect on planning my life! (If you want to know more about planning your life, join me for a 1.5 day workshop to get your Year in Gear that happens in March…) Best investment ever...

Life gets to be simple, planned and intentional. Do you make it hard? Not writing stuff done, not having a plan, just winging it?

I schedule myself Monday morning thru Friday at noon down to every hour and then Friday to Sunday it’s like blank, blank, blank space for spontaneousness, nothingness, relaxation, fun, adventure, family, etc.

“Work hard-play hard” has always been my motto but that’s actually not the words that I want to create. Nothing is hard unless we say so! Work intentional-play intentional might be better.

Either way, are you creating your life? Or are you letting life unfold on its own? Where do you get to lead yourself? What can you expand to plan the life you imagined? A life worth living…

I’d love to provide the container to create being intentional in your 2021...join me March 11-12, 2021.



P.S. I’m going Facebook live again this week with my friend Sarah R from Portland who has not only has chosen ONE WORD, BUT THREE words! And has chosen her spirit animal! Will you join me on Friday at 3 pm CST in The Best Life Tribe? Not a member of the tribe? Click here to join the conversation.
