Wake Up Early and Get to Work

Wake Up Early and Get to Work

The first thing we do in the morning is waking up. However, sometimes we lose to ourselves in the morning. We lose before even getting started. The first thing to do in the morning is to just wake up from bed and do your duties. Remember, bees don't have an alarm clock 😉.

Take Time To Journal

Take Time To Journal

So, this book(meditation) is a journal. If you have ever thought of starting a journal but never managed to do it consistently, and if you make excuses like "Not having enough time," you are missing out on life. Start a journal and just 3 minutes a day won't do any harm. Just jot down 3 things you are grateful for that happened to you. It will make you feel more special because you are.

Prepare for the Day

Prepare for the Day

Planning the dishes before cooking is a common thing, so why can't we just do that common thing in our life? Planning our day before bed is a beneficial habit. Some people are optimists and some are pessimists. No matter which category you fall into, it's important to visualize negative scenarios. However, this habit is not usually encouraged. Perception is all that matters in the end. Try looking at your life from both an optimistic and pessimistic perspective. Also, practice bringing calm during chaotic times.

Tackle The Most Important First

Tackle The Most Important First

This is more likely an "eat the frog" situation- a difficult task that must be completed first. I personally have tried it and it worked. You may ask why should we do this first? The answer is to be like a Roman- free from distraction and fully present, able to work uninterrupted for a prolonged period of time. If we can conquer the tough tasks first, the easy ones will always be easy.

Stillness

Stillness

Seek it, train yourself, and live with nature. We are social animals, so to keep you alive, do things like reading, writing, singing, and walking in nature. Study to be better, not just to score marks. Keep learning and updating yourself to make yourself proud, not for others.

The Last Day

The Last Day

This is a common technique of thinking that today is the last day of your life. By living it as if this day will never come, we define our purpose. By blocking time, we can complete our tasks and prioritize the most important habits. Every breath you take should be utilized for good. Think of yourself as a Roman emperor.

My Perception

My Perception

Philosophers have stated these habits for 2000 years. Until we follow them, they're of no use. These are great habits to follow, and if everyone follows them, everyone will succeed. Unfortunately, not many people do, and that's why 99% fail and only 1% succeed. It's all about putting in the effort in the end. who do you want to be 99% or 1%??
