ThePeopleAlchemist Edit: #SmashYourCeiling, change starts from within – Business & Lifestyle Experimentation for #TheWomanAlchemist – Morning glory
Hello again, and welcome back.
Glad to see you back after yesterday’s pep talk ;-).
If sometimes I seem harsh is because I’m trying to shake you. You see, the people around you, your friends and family, are not going to for two reasons:
- they love you, and they don’t want to hurt you;
- they like you as you are. Right now.
This means they will probably pacify you and your excuses for not doing what needs doing. Well, I’m definitely not going to do that; I’m sure you have already noticed.
Now that we have got that out of the way, I hope you have started your road to self-recovery to your fabulous self with some belief. It is time now to get practical.
Last week I talked about giving yourself some homework for planning your dreams to come true. Break them down into small steps and treat them like homework assignments.
By incorporating little actions into your daily routine and scheduling them religiously, you will soon find that you have progressed toward your dream/s.
I found that, when I want to do something really badly and have a lot going on, it works better for me if I do it early in the morning.
Don’t get me wrong: I am not a natural morning person, albeit, in my previous career, I had to wake up regularly earlier than I would have liked. Now, as an author and consultant, I can pretty much work the hours I choose.
However, this habit from my previous life has remained. If I need to finish something pressing, I ensure I wake up particularly early; we are talking 4/5 am and start working. Before, I used to love getting into a deserted office and tackling big tasks before half of the people were even awake. Nobody to interrupt you, no calls or email to answer. I love the silence very early in the morning; it helps me think more clearly. There are no distractions, and when the summer sunrise inspires me, the light in the dark and frosty winter morning comforts me.
And then, after the big tasks are done, I can get on with life and even go back to bed if I want to.
The point here, schedule your homework at the best time to suit you. Morning glory or evening grace.
See you tomorrow x
