The opinions of the employees of You are personal.
The success is the number of days when you felt worse but did your best.
Makes sense right? Only, most people don’t have the clarity of mind or structure in their daily life to do their best when they feel bad.
They get distracted by many things that are not part of their plan. And then when they analyze a day without exerting themselves, they say, “Oh, I had a bad day.” And when they feel a little “meh” they will use the same thing excuse for a day of little effort: “Oh, I felt a little ‘meh’ today, I wasn’t very inspired to do what I needed.”
The ordinary people You rarely wake up 100 percent and only give your best on these days. That is not enough.
If your path is outside of the corporate world where you have to follow the directions of others in order to earn a comfortable lifestyle, apologizing for not doing your best is unacceptable. Because you are the only one responsible for making your dreams come true. And these dreams are just a series of great efforts.
So you need to shape your life so that every day you know that you did your best, no matter how you are feeling. And it all starts with a goal.
1. Create a daily goal: do your best
It seems like a cartoon-like strategy, but this superficial goal is the only thing that reminds you of the truth: if you are to achieve the goal, you must do your best today.
This goal unleashes a persistent mindset that inspires you to do your best when you feel like you are giving nothing. And as someone who has succeeded, let me tell you that these are most of the days when you start out. So at the end of your daily planning sheet (and if you are not in the habit of daily planning, what are you waiting for), draw a box next to the words “do your best”.
When you are finished with your day and are thinking about your goals, this box will tell you the full story, and it is a tick to mark in an honest way. If you haven’t done your best, don’t hit them, otherwise you will feel stomach discomfort that comes when we let us down.
If you answer no to wondering if you did your best, you will feel so disgusted that you refuse to repeat history the next day. And you’ll also make a commitment to eliminating the distractors that kept you from doing your best. (For me it’s always an overabundance of news and social networks).
As you commit to this daily question / goal, you will find that your bad days are not as frequent as they were before and that if you have them, you put 110 percent of your efforts the next day. That’s how it worked for me. Excuses = removed.
2. Have non-negotiable daily routines
Doing your best every day depends a lot on your habits and attitude. When you wake up and your first thought is that life is depressing and you plunge yourself into a pool of self-irony checking Facebook, you guarantee your worst effort. However, when you automatically sign up for a number of successful habits that promote a hugely successful day, such as: B. Exercise, meditate and be grateful for all the amazing things and people you have in your life and not checking Facebook or your messages, you are automatically doing your best no matter if you feel like shit. All you have to do is practice a morning routine that inspires you every day. Try it for a month and gradually you will feel a lot more natural.
When you get into your head and get all of these amazing things for yourself even when you feel bad, your most challenging goals for the day will be realistic. If you can stand up and change your attitude and energy dramatically, and you can get some gratitude and purpose out of your butt, then you can do what you want. So you’re conquering the world and you can check the box “I did my best!” Activate.
So choose your morning, afternoon, and evening routines well for the next month. You don’t need to go overboard and meditate for two hours or run a half marathon, just include enough exercise, enough affirmation, and enough gratitude to start your day productively. Plan your day from the morning or even the night before. Meditate after you eat to give your afternoon a break and get you on the right track. Then add an evening reflection with a journal.
3. Complete one or more tasks before checking your social networks, email, or messages
We all have these days when we go to bed and think: I just sat there checking my social media, mail, and messages all damn day and got absolutely nothing. Well it’s time to stop. Any activity that involves direction or validation from an outsider will steal your time and best efforts.
The best way to get used to checking your messages in the morning is to automatically jump into a project or other task or task right after your morning routine and leave the communication until you finish. This requires discipline. However, doing this for just a single day will leave you feeling so focused and confident that you don’t want to go back to your Instagram posts. Your productivity and your zest for life will increase by at least one hundred percent.
And if you want to take this distraction-free life to the next level, you will have message review rooms for a few minutes and nothing more! I’ve had salespeople who would be much more productive if they didn’t check their phones every 5 minutes. But after listening to these people’s priorities, they all found for themselves that they really don’t need to check their cell phones more than five times a day. That decision brought them back their lives.
Success is the number of days when you felt the worst but did your best. And you can increase that amount to almost 100 percent by using these strategies:
- Plan the “Do your best” goal and include it in your daily planning.
- Stick to your successful rituals through thick and thin.
- Finish a few hours of real work before checking your messages.
Or you can just … well … lead a normal life. COF cof. Please don’t do it.
