In Part 1 of this short introduction series, we defined what living intentionally means, in a broader and in a more narrow way.
In Part 2, we listed some typical life situations to get a clearer idea of what intentional living might look like in real life.
Today, we’ll briefly discuss a simple framework that helps us create a more intentional life.
Living intentionally – How do we get there?
No matter what’s the specific intention behind a client’s decluttering or organising project is, we always use my simple 3-step process – the ‘ADA Framework’ – to realise the desired outcomes successfully.
The ADA Framework
These are the steps that my clients practice and implement to actively take control and create the life they want to live at 60plus:
A – Gaining Awareness
Gaining awareness of all the ‘stuff’ they currently have in their life – pulling it all out so that they can look at it. Getting crystal-clear on what they really need and want to have in their future life. And how they want to bridge the gap between the present and the future.
D – Making Decisions
Making decisions about the changes they want to make and the outcomes they want to achieve. Prioritising, and deciding what they want to focus on first. Choosing the strategies, projects, and actions they need to implement to realise their plans.
A – Taking Action
Taking action to get rid of what they no longer need in their life, and to simplify and organise what they want to keep. Focusing on one project at a time, taking one action step after another. Moving forward, unstoppably.
Intentional life management – The benefits of the 3-step framework.
Practicing the 3 steps of the ADA Framework not only ensures the successful completion of my clients’ mind management, decluttering and organising projects. It also builds a skillset that they can make use of again and again, for the rest of their life.
The knowledge that we are always capable to take the 3 steps – getting a clear head, making decisions, and getting things done – is unvaluable.
It gives peace of mind. And the confidence to intentionally and proactively design – and enjoy! – life at 60plus.
The easiest way to see and appreciate the simplicity, efficiency, and the power of the ADA Framework is to apply it in real-life situations.
