Who would have thought a tomato would revolutionise the world of productivity, huh!?
In Day 5 of the Natalie’s 10 Day Freedom Plan Blog Challenge we are encouraged to create a success plan that is a schedule of tasks that we will do on a daily basis. Natalie encourages us to make sure we complete our 3 Most Important Actions or MIAs and that the must be done every day.
We’ll set up the environment and habit (there we go with habits, AGAIN) so that no matter where we are, it can be done. From an airport, a BnB, in the back of a taxi or on a secluded beach.
And I’m going to follow Natalie’s excellent suggestion to use the pomadorro technique to keep myself on track with the hard stuff.
So let me delve into what my daily success plan will look like.
4am – Always an early start for me. It’s the best time for me to work; it’s quiet and my brain is at it’s freshest. But regardless of what the actual time is, my day will start with a drink of water, a bathroom stop and then meditation. Just 10 minutes.
Visualisations, affirmations, writing in my journal and/or reading a few pages of a self-help book. 10 minutes.
Writing. Here is where I’ll set the pomadoro timer for 25 minutes and I will write for my blog. What I will write about will have been determined the night before, as I list out my 3 Most Important Actions. 25 minutes.
The other stuff. 15 minutes.
That’s only one hour. But that will add structure to my mornings and ensure that the most important (and for me, difficult) task gets done in the morning. I do still have a couple of hours in the evening to also put into building my business, but the morning routine and the meditation and writing I do there, are the activities that will add THE MOST VALUE to my day, my business and my life.
