Do you start your day before your day starts?*
Most people start their day unsure of what they’re going to do.
This is a recipe for disaster…unless you prefer a mediocre life.
Because people who live mediocre lives go about their days without a plan.
“An idiot with a plan can beat a genius without a plan.” -Warren Buffett
Don’t wander through life like a lost soul.
*Have some direction*
What exactly do I mean when I say to start your day before your day starts?
- Before you go to sleep the night before, plan out 1–3 big idea tasks you are going to complete immediately after waking up.
- Wake up before the sun rises.
For some this may be 5 AM, for others it could be 6 AM. Generally, the earlier the better.
The point is, you can get a lot of shit done in the early hours of the day while the rest of the world sleeps on their dreams.
Not only that, but when you first wake up in the morning, your willpower reserves have been fully recharged and you’re ready to take on the day with full force.
What’s interesting is that when you plan your tasks the night before, your subconscious mind sifts through all the key pieces of information and puts them all together for you…
*All while you sleep*
Now that’s effective outsourcing.
When you wake up in the morning, you’ll know exactly what to do with your day and get right to work.
- You may even be hit with a sudden epiphany upon waking up.
- Grand ideas that seem to come from nowhere, spring up from a void in your mind.
- Ideas which have been waiting to be accessed, but only now have your permission to reveal themselves.
That’s what happens when you decide to start your day before your day starts.
This little tip has the power to change your life. If you aren’t already doing it, start tonight.
You’ll reap the benefits of putting your mind to work while you sleep.
Strength and Honor,
Remember: The more You Get Shit Done, (even in your sleep), the More Time you have to create the Life You Truly Desire — the one you’re imagining right now.
