Create a Day You’ll Love to Live

Your mind needs to take a dump, relieve yourself by investing 5 minutes reading an article that has been changing lives. If you would like to be able to create perfectly productive day that is free from guilt and overwhelm, then take a gander :)

***Disclaimer: In this article is an exercise, something you need to try on. I.e. an action you need to take in order to create a new result. So only continue reading this if you are want to increase your personal power and your prosperity. Don’t read and do, if you are comfortable with stagnate procrastination… just go on about your business.

With that said…

A solopreneur can use the following idea and activity to get more done and feel even more empowered.

The only condition is that this solopreneur needs to be willing to hit the fitting room, so to speak, and ‘try something on’.
I’ll prove it to you.

Right now you might be suffering from overfill-yourplateitis… which is a nasty little bug that could be causing you to take on more than you can actually accomplish in a day.

If you are like me then you have probably experienced this, you know what I’m talking about.

But you have no idea that by over filling your plate with too much to do in a day you are being dishonest with yourself. Just think what it would be like if you continued to lie to yourself every day for the rest of this year… what could that create?

You have probably had the experience of getting to the end of the day and having more tasks left then time to complete them. And when you do, you notice those internal thoughts like, “I’m never going to catch up!” OR “I’m such a procrastinator…”

Everyone knows that we are our own worst critic, and in criticizing ourselves we often disempower ourselves. We diminish our ability to be effective and present with our clients, our family, and our world. And what compounded impact do you think that has on the growth of your business? Especially your income?

There is only one solution to this, assume for a moment that we live in a perfect world, that in this world you can create anything you wish. And imagine for a moment in your mind’s eye what the perfect meal could be like. It’s like you are at a buffet and you serve yourself the perfect plate. It has every scrumptious morsel you want, nothing you don’t. It’s something you’re salivating buckets over and cannot wait to devour. And when you do, that meal is perfect in every way. You are present enough to enjoy each bite and the flavor explosion that follows. And the meal is over you feel pleasantly complete, full of energy and totally relaxed.

Think about making use of this next exercise for creating your day and you’ll begin to feel real power. You will begin to create exactly what you want every day and feel more empowered and energized.

And soon you will realize that in order to serve yourself just the right amount each and every day you must record and measure what you are planning to do so that you can give yourself honest feedback. Otherwise you’ve thrown your plate on the ground and are just eating right out of the buffet cart.

Now I can almost hear your mind saying… “Planning?! I’m in the flow of the divine timeline.” And you are in luck! This process I’m about to share with you is the most powerful process for directing your attention and energy wisely, so that you can be free and flowing to create your day in the moment.

Here we go… when you wake up, after your morning rituals. Take a moment to visualize and write (or type) about the day. Answer this question:

Step #1: What do I want to create more than anything else today?

Then in response to the above answer, answer this question:

Step # 2: Why do I want that, what will it give me?

Done? Congratulations, you’ve just written a vision and purpose for the day! How does that feel?

Step #3: What comes next is really simple. Pull up that to-do list you’ve got floating around. (If you don’t have one written out, I suggest you dump all of that information out of your brain pronto! I mean don’t we always feel relief after a good dump? Well… the principals the same here too.)

Ok now you’ve got your to-do list and I bet you ten dollars that this list is for some un-defined amount of time. Meaning that there is more on this list then will probably get done today. It is a list of things that are both urgent and important. And believe me, this is the problem that leads to overfill-yourplateitis.

Step #4: Go back and read you vision for the day, what it is that you want to create more than anything else today. Then read your to-do list and cross off everything that is not in alignment with your vision. Not because it’s a completed task, but because it’s just not going to serve you in creating the perfect day you’ve laid out for yourself.

Keep in mind this exercise should take you no more than 15 minutes (assuming you have a to-do list).

Step #5: Now, if you want to take this to the next level then you can check your work. You can make sure the day you are planning for yourself is actually humanly possible. Go down your list and estimate the amount of time it is going to take to complete each task (if you don’t know, guess!). Be sure to account for your play time, meals, workout, traveling, etc. Add up the amount of hours and see if it is even possible for your waking hours. (Should be less than 16 hours, assuming you are sleeping 8 hours)

Step #6: What good is an exercise if you only do it once… Next you will want to repeat this for 5 consecutive days in a row. Be sure to include everything in your life on your list for the day. Especially those things that give you want you want most, those things you Love to do. Give yourself permission to fill your plate up with just the right amount. So that afterwards you feel energized and powerful, rather than over-filled and lethargic.
