Do you consistently win?
How do you win on a consistent basis? Is it something you focus on every day? I was recently listening to a podcast on this very topic and I thought it was a perfect discussion for the #CJJblog this week. Here are four questions for you to consider when thinking about how you can win each day.
- How do you start your day? Do you pass the mirror test? Give yourself a high five and capture those positive vibes each morning. You can even say to yourself: “I am going to have an awesome day” or “I like myself.” You should also sit and reach each morning, followed by telling yourself “I am responsible.”
- How do you schedule/organize your day? For me, I have five non-negotiables that I make sure I complete every day for the last five years… 1) Pray, 2) Exercise, 3) Go for a walk while listening to an audio book or podcast, 4) Write down my goals in a journal, and 5) Meditate. What are your most valuable priorities? Rank them and plan out an execution plan. Blocking off your day (ex: 1-2 hour segments) also helps.
- What will you do today to serve others? For me, I like to utilize social media to stay in touch with others and provide value. I do this with a daily Success Thought and a Daily Dose of Leadership post. I also wish every one of my Facebook connections Happy Birthday. I write a weekly blog (as you know), produce a weekly podcast, and send out a monthly newsletter. I also make an effort to frequently text/call my family and friends.
- How do you end your day? Do you plan for the next day? Do you write in a Gratitude Journal? Ending your day is equally as important as the start.
- CHALLENGE ALERT: Treat each day as three separate (6-hour) days – 6am to Noon, Noon to 6pm, and 6pm to Midnight. Focus on resetting each block and being as productive as you can. Let me know your results and how it works for you.
