How do you behave when no one is watching? Is your private life congruent with the public perception? If not, then TODAY is the time to make that change.
It all begins with your morning and evening rituals. In order of sequence, I would like you to write down the top 10 things you do first thing in the morning and before you go to sleep at night. Each step no matter how minor has a significant impact on your day, week, month, year and eventually destiny!
My morning list would be turn-off alarm clock, bathroom, read the bible, pray, exercise, meditate, turn on computer, check for emergency emails, visit news websites and start the day.
After you create your list, consider adding a time limit to each activity. Go one step further and keep a time log of your activities throughout the entire day. This will help you minimize time wasters and significantly increase overall productivity.
Be willing to take each task and break them into sub-tasks. By doing this, I noticed that I was wasting nearly an hour each morning checking email and reading the news. I was nearly 90 minutes into my day before I began my most important activity.
Like many people, I was allowing interruptions to dictate where I spent my time. I would end up doing things that were urgent but not strategic. At night, all of us generally have a good idea of our priorities for the following day.

How about spending time the night before writing down the top 3 activities you have to complete for the following day? Once you hit your desk, you don’t check email or read the news online until you spend at least 60 minutes working on your top 3 activities.
In life, you only manifest goals that are important to you. Take time in the morning to focus on your top activities and witness the increase in productivity.
For years, people have been encouraging me to write more articles. Yeah, I know it’s important but I will get to it when I have a chance. Well, taking my own advice, I began to spend the first 30 minutes of each day engaged in the joyful activity of writing.
This article you are reading is a direct result of my renewed commitment toward writing. More articles and even books are sure to follow. All because I made a decision to live my life on purpose.
How about you? What decision must you make today that will reap a rich harvest tomorrow?
For the love of the NEW you that is set to emerge,
