Navigating the SoloAging Journey

The Power of Prioritization

The journey of SoloAging is an adventure filled with opportunities and choices, and the decisions that follow. As we venture into the Next Fifty, it becomes crucial to identify and prioritize our goals/outcomes, hierarchy of values, and SoloLiving lifestyle preferences.

In this article, we'll delve into the art of prioritization, a skill that can transform your SoloAging journey into a fulfilling and purpose-driven experience.

Understanding Priority Selection:

Before we dive into the process of identifying your SoloAger priorities, let's grasp the essence of priority selection. Prioritization is the act of determining what matters most to you and allocating your time, energy, and resources accordingly.

In the context of SoloAging, it's about making intentional decisions from the choices available that align with your goals/outcomes and hierarchy of values for this Next Fifty phase of life.

Some Struggles in Priority Selection:

1. Difficulty Identifying Priorities:

  • One common challenge SoloAgers face is pinpointing their top priorities. The abundance of choices and possibilities can sometimes lead to confusion and uncertainty before making decisions and during decision making.

2. Feeling Indecisive About Goals: 

  • SoloAgers may find themselves wrestling with setting concrete goals/outcomes for the Next Fifty. The fear of making the wrong decisions from the choices can be paralyzing.

3. Unclear Values and Preferences:

  • Some individuals may not have a clear understanding of their hierarchy of values and lifestyle preferences, making it challenging to align their priorities with their true selves.

Along the journey as you weave your tapestry, understanding StoryScope and Legacy are important concepts and practices. A quick reminder of both follow: 

Understanding the StoryScope

Our lives are stories waiting to be told, narratives that unfold with each passing day.

The metaphor of "StoryScope" invites us to view this narrative through different lenses. Just as telescopes reveal the vastness of the universe, microscopes uncover the intricacies of the microscopic world, stethoscopes listen to our vital sounds of living, our StoryScope allows us to explore and find the full spectrum of our daily existence.

Our daily lives resemble a kaleidoscope, with each decision, action, and interaction contributing to the ever-shifting, meaningful pattern.

As SoloAgers and seasoned professionals, you have a unique perspective on life's twists and turns. Your legacy is not only a reflection of your past-present but a blueprint for the future-present.

Legacy: The Useful Whats

Legacy is often associated with material wealth, but it extends far beyond possessions. Legacy comprises the "useful whats" we leave behind, including our time, effort, and money. These elements are the building blocks and seedbeds of our legacy, and how we allocate, plant them shapes the stories we share.

For SoloAgers, who have accumulated a wealth-wellth of experiences and knowledge, legacy is about passing on wisdom and lessons. Your is about preserving your story as it is about empowering others to write their chapters more skillfully. As professionals and educators, your legacy resides in the work you shared, the values you instilled, and the innovations you sparked.
