Day 24

This morning I felt the effects of staying up too late last night. I must do a better job of going to bed by 10 p.m. each night. But, even with that, I was ready to get up at 5 and get my day started.

I am really enjoying the new-found focus I feel as result of doing the Miracle Morning each day. It truly has become a new habit and almost something I look forward to. Instead of starting the day rushed and hurried and behind, I start the day with an intentionality.

Today’s take aways from The One Thing:

“Extraordinary results are achieved by this negotiation with your time.”

  • It’s not about having more time. It’s about making more of the time you do have. There is always going to be someone busier than you still finding time to do more than you. Most of the time, when we say we can’t do something, we are making an excuse versus finding a reason WHY we actually can.

“No matter how hard you try, there will always be things left undone at the end of your day, week, month, year, and life. Trying to get them all done is folly.”

  • This is a pretty powerful shift in thinking for this perfectionist at heart. But, I will say that it is freeing to let go of the need to get everything done. Instead, I have been focusing each day on the one thing I need to do to drive my business forward toward my goals. It feels really good to know that the number one priority is and make sure that what I do each day pushes me in that direction.
