One of my core values is peace
I crave peace in all I do
Without peace, I can end up doing tasks that don’t align with my values
Without peace, I can end up with a life that I didn’t create
Without peace, I can end up frustrated
That’s why I love processes
Processes help you to be productive
Processes help you to create something that is repeatable and works for you
Peace gives me the gift of clarity which helps me to work in flow (AKA momentum), so I can do my lives work
There are some days you may feel like you are working in flow
Other days you may feel like everything is working against you
What if you didn’t allow your day to dictate your mood?
But instead, you deliberately created your day
One of the ways I help my clients is my tap into more clarity, confidence and cash and one of the first things I do is get under the hood of their business to find out what is really going on.
The bottom line is your performance is a measure of your success which is highly dependent on processes and we mistake activity for achievement.
So what are the 3 productive morning habits that actually help you achieve more?
- WAKE UP ON YOUR TIME
Yes on your time.
I wake up at 6am
Sometimes 5am because of the time my body clock functions
According to Sleep.org, your body actually knows what it should be doing and when. Don’t force yourself to be part of the 5 am club if you can’t fall asleep before midnight.
Getting enough sleep and waking up when your body is ready will lead more often to a productive day than forcing yourself out of bed hours before your brain is ready—that’s a recipe for burnout.
Implementing a morning routine has been proven to help you improve your self-discipline, by re-enforcing the act of discipline at the commencement of each day, you will find more discipline in almost all other facets of your life (diet, health, mental focus).
2. STAY IN YOUR ZONE
I have a shift list that I created in Trello as part of my magical morning routine and that shift list comprises of music, videos, books that help me to shift my emotions to ones that serve me so I can stay high vibe.
The bottom line is that there is no one way to start your day, the whole point of a morning routine or any routine is that you have something that serves what your mind, body and soul needs.
So what are you manifesting in your zone?
Stress has a direct link to increased cortisol levels, and a plethora of research shows us this is associated with increased weight gain, anxiety and a number of health risks. Don’t make stress your zone, instead look at ways to enjoy the process, because joy is the ultimate creator
3. CHECK YOUR FOCUS
The biggest waste is a life wasted doing things that are not important to you. Not having a clear vision and actually implementing it daily does a disservice to you and the world that you were called to contribute to. This clear vision should be something you can see in front of you. In fact, it should surround your environment, because if you are not defining your vision of your future, you will be left with the old vision of the past
The way you start your day anchors you and ensures you stay focused on what is most important to YOU. You must master a consistent morning routine to achieve your highest level of productivity! In the ultimate magical morning routine, there are 50 questions to find your passion section that leads onto focusing on your definite purpose, then there is a powerful and physical tool that helps you to focus on your purpose daily. So perhaps it’s time to add a physical reminder to your morning routine that helps you to focus on what is important, yes YOUR goals.
“The graveyard is the richest place on earth, because it is here that you will find all the hopes and dreams that were never fulfilled, the books that were never written, the songs that were never sung, the inventions that were never shared, the cures that were never discovered, all because someone was too afraid to take that first step, keep with the problem, or determined to carry our their dream.” – Les Brown
Don’t make your final resting place, richer than your present place. Leverage your mornings for success and you can create momentum to impact other areas of your life
