Have you got a morning routine?
I’ve read a lot about successful people having morning routines so they can save their decision-making capacity, which has limits, for important things during their day.
My morning routine typically gets me moving, reflecting and grateful.
I go for a walk, spend time journaling and spend time being grateful for everything I have in my life.
Don’t believe me that this is valuable? Here’s a great HBR article: https://lnkd.in/ez2Z6NN
I’ve also read this article on evening routines and the benefits of journaling in the evenings which I haven’t done yet but am going to explore: https://lnkd.in/eZMuDPs
This journaling and reflecting is where learning happens. I imagine this morning and evening routines like book ends.
They are typically the start and end of your book shelf.
They surround the knowledge, learning, adventures and wisdom in each of the books and keep it in place, tidy and organised.
Imagine doing this for your thoughts.
Imagine your journaling was documenting the knowledge, learning, adventures and wisdom you’ve encountered each day.
And organising this for you to keep it in place, tidy and organised.
Minimum to try this out could be just 5 minutes at the start and end of your day.
- What am I excited about today?
- What can I be grateful for today?
- What did I learn today?
