We all want to become better at this thing called life. To continuously improve and move closer towards greatness. But a lot of times we have no rhyme or reason how we go about it pursuing it. Well, I learned early on that one way works. Not just for myself, but for many others. It’s all about your daily routine.
What do you do day in and day out that keeps you on track? Really think about it. Do you wake up at a certain time? For me, I try to make sure I do the same thing and start the same way each day. I read some inspirational quotes, go over my affirmations and check my glucose levels.
Then I devote at least ten minutes to reading something that enriches my mind and then I soak it all in. I write down in a moleskin what I took away from the reading and limit it to one page. Why? Because it really makes me think about what I read and how it affects me.
Then I grab a sheet of paper and get to work on my list for the day. I use the Ivy Lee Method to keep me on track and focused on what I want to accomplish for that particular day. I try to do all of this within the first two hours of waking up. Then I start on my day job. Everything is a process, but I learned that if you have a routine, it makes things a lot easier and productive. But all of this helps to increase your personal development, tremendously.
You see, becoming better is all about doing small things, with a routine, day in and day out. It’s called Kaizen. It means improvement in Japanese. It’s the art of doing small things each day to become better. This way it allows you to concentrate on the tasks for the day and grow at the same time.
This is my routine, but I didn’t write it so you could use it yourself. I want you to think long and hard and work to build your own. Something that you can cater to your life and put to good use. Give it a try. What have you got to lose? You have everything to gain.
What does your daily routine look like? Comment below and let me know.
