makeunder step four: reflect and evolve

Congratulations! At this point in a makeunder, the real work is already complete. This phase is where maintenance kicks in. The path to reflecting was fairly simple in three basic steps:

  1. Create a vision
  2. Exfoliate stuff
  3. Identify intentions
  4. Reflect and evolve

To review them all in depth click these links: how and why makeunder happened for me, create a vision, exfoliate stuff, and identify intentions.

As I touched on a bit in Step Three, regular maintenance needs to take place to keep things from getting out of hand. Personally, the ‘end of the week exfoliations‘ are a great way to help me stay on top of the amount of things I have. Since I can’t honestly say that I always practice the one-in-one-out policy (although I am working towards it), this weekly habit does provide a bit of self-regulation.

The other important factor to consider as you grow is to revisit your vision and add things that become important and to subtract what no longer is applicable. The more regularly you reflect on the vision the less you will need to create major changes going forward.

So now I want to hear from you!

If you do your own makeunder, I would love to feature it here on MakeunderMyLife! Please email me at jess@jesslc.com for more details.

  • Jess, I just copied and pasted the four steps into word and added the how and why for the makeunder. I’m just at that place where I really want to make an intentional move toward reaching that place and person I want to be. I read through the steps and am excited to delve into them more. It’s amazing how much of our lives we can live unexamined because we’re all so busy running around trying to accomplish our to do lists or meet up with friends, exercise, network, etc. Thanks for posting! Would love to see print friendly versions (direct links) of all/most of your posts.

  • I just stumbled upon this website the other day, and in just a few days, I have decided that it is time to “make under” my life! Hooray for spring break!
