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 for more details.

  1. I truly love this, you have not only inspired me to move ahead, to edit, to organize, to re-focus, to run, to make an effort to be aware of my health, eating salads- It does require one to reflect to begin to make changes and to let go of old things and old habits.
