How Purging Connects with Your Core Values โ€“ LOP034


Why purge?

Purging will help you to let go of whatโ€™s holding you back in life so that you can focus on whatโ€™s most important to you, and spend more of your time and energy working on what you want to accomplish in life.

What is purging?

Itโ€™s a process that helps to increase your,

  1. Ability to focus, thus making better use of your time;
  2. Personal motivation, and;
  3. Physical and emotional energy.

โ€œIf you know how to pay attention, boredom is not a problem.”

Sam Harris

Purging reinforces your intrinsic values

Many people spend too much time seeking meaning and validation from extrinsic motivators lead to more unhappiness and loneliness. This may show up as,

  • Excessive social media use
  • Comparing yourself to others
  • The need for external validation
  • Mob or group-think
  • Bullying and shouting online, etc.

Ultimately you want to prioritize your self-care first, then your quality relationships, and finally your work and productivity.
