I've been listening to Miracle Morning Millionaires as my personal growth read. Miracle Morning and the S.A.V.E.R.S. have always been an aspirational goal of mine, and I attempt to work them in, but I've struggled to do the routines outlined. So I'm going to do what I always do and take a bit from this book, and a bit from what's been working for me, to create something I think might work.
I'm going to give it a shot at least. So I figured you guys might like to try it with me.
1. Goal Setting
2. Basic Self-Evaluation
3. Cleaning, or Leaving the House (It's a one or the other thing. So you'll have to pick the lesser of two evils.)
4. Using an Hour-Based Planner or Online Calendar. (I'm going to be using both)
5. Being REALLY Fucking Honest
And it starts tomorrow. Meaning every morning, I'm going to set my alarm for 5am (I want to say 4:30, but I'm giving myself some room to fuck up), and do something every day to evaluate my path and productivity.
After taking multiple classes with detailed plans, I've determined that anything beyond a week gets sketchy. People get sick, folks call into work and plans need to be redone, but usually, we can skate by with a week commitment.
And I've found that I need to have something I can do in the morning, because for me that's my most productive time. If you want to play along on this 7 day challenge with me, I don't care if you're an early bird, a night owl, or an afternoon pigeon. You do you. Because that's what is usually missing from this stuff. But I am going to say to do something every damn day. Don't worry. You'll have plenty of time for a cocktail after.
I'm going to be detailing these posts every morning before, during, or after I've accomplished each task. So don't expect a ton of graphics or links. It wouldn't be a challenge if I didn't make it a bit of work, and I'm doing this work too, so don't expect fancy blogs on top of that shit. I'm busy.
The only thing I'm going to tell you to buy is a journal. Something physical to write in, and a pen that doesn't skip and make you want to throw it across the room. Because no one needs that shit first thing in the morning. That's your task for Day 0, I guess. And if you're a writer or a reader, I can guaran-goddamn-tee you have a blank or practically unused journal in your house right now. If not...Dollar Tree carries them. You can find a buck in your couch cushions.
Or if you just want to use this as an excuse to buy a new journal...well, I'm happy to enable a fellow stationary addict's addiction.
Are you down? If you are, or if you just want to watch me struggle with self-evaluation and reflection to laugh at me, I'll see you back here tomorrow. #Roxys7DayChallenge starts in less than 24 hours.
