5… 4… 3… 2… 1… GO.
It’s Sunday, my favorite day of the week.
While everyone is sleeping, I’m already up.
I wake up with an alarm at 6 am and immediately turn around and make my bed.
Sundays are usually my only day off in the week, but I’m not thinking about laying in bed and hitting snooze.
What’s the point?
What am I going to accomplish by hitting snooze 3-4 times?
Here’s my day to relax, and take some “me time,” before anyone else has the chance to bother me.
I meditate first thing for 15-20 minutes.
Then I tread into the bathroom and take a cold shower.
The icy shower on your skin gives you a zing, and you come out feeling refreshed instead of mellow.
Why would you want to do anything that makes you feel feeble and weak?
I want to feel in control and powerful.
Like a lion. Not a sheep.
Then I make my way into the control room, which is my office.
Now here is my opportunity to make the coming week shine.
I take my time and plan out everything that’s to come.
First I put a motivational quote on the whiteboard, something that I want to be the primary foundation for the week.
I plan out my fitness; workout, meals, sleep schedule, etc…
Next, I plan out my work; schedule, clients, phone calls, marketing, etc…
I don’t go for perfection. I just want to get an idea of what’s to come.
If you don’t have a plan then when someone new comes at you, you won’t know what to do.
But If you have a plan, you’ll know exactly what you need to do.
For example, if I plan my week way ahead of time and I find out mid-week that I have an emergency project that I need to finish I can easily adjust.
But if you go in with no game plan you’ll feel lost and confused. And things will end up messy.
And now you can’t wait for the weekend to come to put an end to it.
Put your shit on paper.
You’ll be able to see all the challenges that lie ahead of you.
What do I do for the rest of the day?
I spend it with my family and friends.
I finish my plan early, and then I have all this worry-free time to actually relax.
Because I’ve taken all the things that were on my mind and put them on paper, so I don’t have to think about it.
Why do you think humans invented writing?
Because we can’t handle all the information in our brains anymore, there’s just way too much to think about. So we had to log some of it into the external world.
Make a plan.
Go out there and kill the week.
Don’t let a “relaxing” Sunday ruin your whole week.
