Life is busy. It can feel impossible to move toward your dreams. If you have a full-time job and kids, it’s even harder. How do you move forward? If you don’t purposefully carve out time every day to progress and improve, without question, your time will get lost in the vacuum of our increasingly crowded lives. Before you know it, you’ll be old and withered, wondering where all that time went.
As Harold Hill has said, ”You pile up enough tomorrows, and you’ll find you are left with nothing but a lot of empty yesterdays.”
Rethinking your life and getting out of survival mode
This article is intended to challenge you to rethink your entire approach to life. The purpose is to help you simplify, focus on what’s meaningful, and live and work with intention.
With you orienting your life around intentions, you can live every moment on your own terms. You are the designer of your destiny. You are responsible. You get to decide. You must decide because if you don’t, someone else will. Indecision is a bad decision.
With this short morning routine, your life will quickly change. It may seem like a long list. But it’s really quite simple:
- Wake up;
- get in the zone;
- get moving;
- put the right food in your body;
- get ready;
- get inspired;
- get perspective; and
- do something to move yourself forward.
