How to Make it Easy to Succeed Each Day
Today, I want to talk about the things I do that makes it easy for me to succeed each day. A lot of the “hard work” I do and the results I get comes from making sure that I keep to my routines and stay disciplined in times of stress like this.
Here are 3 things to make it easy to succeed each day:
Get really clear on what the top priorities are in your personal life and professionally. What needs the most focus in each area for each day? Are you kidding yourself with what you choose to focus on? Now may be the time in your life where you ought to focus on your physical body, or your spiritual walk. Those might not be fun to focus on, but if you’re not clear what you need to focus on, they’ll never get done.
Nail down your morning routine. I use an app called Strides, where you track the habits you want to form. It will ensure that you continue to do certain things every day with reminders and places where you can track your progress. My non-negotiables are drinking water in the morning, reading the bible, and meditating - but the beauty of your morning routine is that you can build it to drive your growth.
Time block every part of your day. My calendar protects my time. Are you actually using your calendar, or are you unconsciously sleep walking through the day? Your calendar should keep you accountable from the start of the day until the end of the day. Each day feeds into a week, into a quarter, into a year of GSD - “Getting Stuff Done”.
Life was amazing before all this uncertainty set in, but even now, life is still awesome. There are just some new things to think about now, and this has been an awesome wake-up call for many of us. Get your priorities in order, and give yourself a break - make it easier for yourself to succeed every day!
