Welcome to the second article in our morning routine series. Here are some questions to consider.
What’s most important to you?
What is the one thing you really want to do on a daily basis that would make a big difference, but you just can’t seem to find the time for?
What are your dream goals?
In short, what good habit do you want to cultivate that would make a real impact on your life? Think about this for a moment. Grab a pen and paper and jot down some ideas.
It could be in any area of your life from exercise and healthy eating to self-improvement or getting ahead in business or at your job. It could be working on an important relationship, learning a new language, finding time for creative projects, or getting in the habit of reading every morning.
Once you’ve figured out what you want to work on, what you want to improve, and what’s important to you, you can make it part of your morning routine.
Sit back and imagine your perfect morning.
It isn’t stressed or rushed. Most importantly it’s a morning when you have time for everything you want to do.
Think about those days for a moment.
Maybe it means having time for a long shower. Perhaps it’s going for a run before breakfast. Sometimes it’s having a few minutes to connect with your spouse over coffee, or maybe you want to carve out an hour first thing in the morning to work on a novel or painting.
The key is to start with what’s most important to you and think about how you could fit it into your morning routine. Remember, you’re just dreaming and imagining at this point. We’ll figure out where to find the time to fit it in and how to make it all work out later on.
For now, I want you to paint a vivid picture in your mind of what your new morning could look like, step by step. It may be helpful to write it out with clear descriptions in as much detail as possible. Write it down in a journal or on a piece of paper that you can refer back to as needed. In short, you are defining every aspect of your perfect morning.
Why is this so important? Because you can’t start to make any meaningful changes until you know what your goals are. You need to know your destination before you can choose a route and figure out how you’ll get there.
That’s what today’s task is all about. It’s figuring out where you want to get to. Don’t stop until you have it figured out and firmly pictured in your mind. When you complete this exercise, keep your visual nearby for a day, thinking about it as you go through the day and solidify in your mind that you WILL accomplish these dreams.
