What is your dream day? How specific do I need to get? Without getting clear on where you want to go, it is impossible to create a plan of how you’re going to get there. Creating your perfect day also helps you get clear on your why, which will then make your how easier. Here is what you need to do to create your perfect day.
1) Write out what your perfect day looks like.
Get super specific. Walk through your perfect day and perfect environment. What does your morning routine look like? What do you eat for breakfast? What time do you start work? What do you do for work? Where are you trying to go and what goals are you trying to attain at work? What time do you have lunch and what do you have? What do you do after lunch? Who is on your team? What are the people on your team like? What time do you finish work? Where is your work? What do you do after work? How do you decompress from work? How do you renew your energy? What time do you eat dinner and what do you eat? What is your nightly routine? What time do you go to bed? Use pen and paper to answer all of these questions in detail.
2) Visualize it.
Visualize right before you go to bed and when you wake up in the morning. Feel all the emotions you would feel in the moment so that you are experiencing your perfect day on a subconscious level. It is important to get your mind, body, and emotions moving all in the same direction of your success, instead of all over the place. Dr. Joe Dispenza writes alot about brain heart coherence.
3) Commit yourself to making this your reality.
Take the necessary actions to get there. Create a game plan. The book Atomic Habits by James Clear discusses creating sustainable systems to stick to your habits and achieve your goals. Goals are great for giving you a trajectory but the system that you do every single day is what shapes the accomplishment that you want. Focus on creating a sustainable system and the goal will follow.
4) Manage your time.
If something is important to you, you will make the time to do it. However, it is important to time block your days, delegate your time, and eliminate tasks that are unnecessary and don’t move the needle in the right direction. I like using Google Calendar to time block my day and Asana to create a to do list of the tasks that I need to get done. I like doing the hardest tasks at the beginning of the day so that the rest of the day feels like a breeze. Kevin Wathey mentioned in one of his TikTok videos: “Why put off for tomorrow what you can accomplish today”. He also discusses 2X hacking your time. We all have 86,400 seconds in a day. You can 2X your time. How? Our brains can’t multi task. You need to choose a priority and secondary task to do together. A priority task is something that takes your mental focus, like an audiobook. The secondary task is something that is more autonomous, like walking a dog. Since you don’t have to think about walking the dog, you can think about the audiobook instead.
5) Keep track of your progress.
Routinely check up on the work you’ve done in the past to continue to motivate yourself in the present. Review the changes that you need to make and create new habits to implement those changes.
6) Stay focused.
Nourish your mind, body, and spirit with positive affirmations, healthy food, challenging tasks, and important knowledge that will keep you continuously moving towards your goals. Focus on strengthening the systems and releasing the exact outcome.
