Since the beginning of January, I’ve been doing a morning and evening routine that has made me more productive, healthier and centered.
I even created a spreadsheet to track how well I was actually following it. For example, last week I completed 90.09% of my routines.
I start the day by following the plan laid out in the awesome book, “The Miracle Morning” by Hal Elrod. He calls it his Life “S.A.V.E.R.S.” which stands for:
Silence: I meditate for 12 minutes.
Affirmations: I created one page of affirmations.
Visualizations: I visualize my average, perfect day from beginning to end.
Exercise: For me, that is yoga.
Read: I read a personal development/motivational type of book.
Scribe: I write three things in my journal that I’m grateful for and my most important tasks for that day.
The only way to get all of that done, I’ve started getting up a lot earlier. This was hammered home by Craig Ballantyne, of “Early To Rise” fame. I’ve learned a lot from Craig over the years, including the next thing I do in the morning which is to remove all distractions a focus on working on my most important goal.
Well, Craig has just released a new book titled “The Perfect Day Formula.” It is super-easy to read and gives you a formula for not just what to do in the morning but for the entire day. It is awesome.
What’s really cool, is it takes what you’ve learned from all the self-help types of books you’ve read and puts it into action is a systematic way so you get RESULTS instead of just pumped up.
Have a great week and, as always…
Kick butt, make mucho DEEnero!
