We are on day 5 of a 7 day mini challenge for productivity. Today we are looking at how you can come up with a new morning game that will transform your day so that you can achieve your goals.
Now that you’ve identified what it is that you’d like to do in the morning, what you don’t need to be spending time on and how you gain extra time, now’s the time to put it all together into your new morning schedule.
How to Come Up With a New Morning Plan
The most effective way to start on this is with a list of the new tasks that you want to put into your morning. Work out how long each task will take. If you want to have a run in the morning, where will that fit – after breakfast, before breakfast? Perhaps you want to make sure that you have a shower and that you eat breakfast. If you have decided that you want to meditate each day, you may need to decide if you’ll do it before your tea or after. Which one will work best for you?
If you want to find time to read or work on your business, then you might want to get up before other people do so that you can work in silence before the hubbub starts for the beginning of the rest of the family.
Now fit the rest of your chores around these new tasks. It may take some shuffling to do it, but with some creativity and some flexibility, you should be able to come up with a plan that works for you.
Although you might not be used to making over your morning, with a little bit of time, you’ll be able to get into the groove of it. We will be looking closer at this tomorrow. However, for now, write down what you feel your new morning routine should look like. Not only will this help to solidify iit in youor brain, but it will also give you someth9ing to refer to.
Now leave the notebook or paper that you have your new plan on next to your bed or wherever you’ll see it first thing in the morning. This will serve as a reminder of how your morning will be different in the future.
Although you’ve written down your plan, remember it’s not written in stone. Even the best plans don’t always work out when you put them into action. It may well need adjusting and changing once you try it out in reality. It might be that it isn’t quite right for you or for the rest of the family, and may need tweaking.
You’ve done the hard part though, and in my next post we’ll be looking at putting the new routine into action.
