In today’s video I give you another tool for your lifestyle design tool-belt called Your Perfect Day – A Visualization Tool for Lifestyle Design.
Your Perfect Day
You wake up in the morning to begin Your Perfect Day by jumping out of bed. You put the kettle on and pour your ground organic arabica coffee into your french press.
You jump in the shower for a quick 2-minute cold shower.
After shaving and other skin maintenance, you pour up a hot cup of joe and add a dab of butter and coconut oil.
This has all been planned out and you do these things without a thought, almost as if they were instinct.
Why Should You Use Your Perfect Day Exercise?
Visualizations are an incredible tool for your mind and creating your own reality.
Mapping out your activities from the time you wake up in the morning until the time you go to sleep at night, what does your perfect day look like?
Once I begin building your perfect day you can start integrating those activities into your daily routine.
Get Your Work Done
The most important aspect of Your Perfect Day exercise is thinking about the type of work that you do during the day.
It is one thing to map out what meals you eat and physical activities you do, but the actual work you create during your perfect day is essential to building a lifestyle that gives meaning to your life by providing value to the world.
Out Of The Box
People who will never escape the plantation yearn for the day when they can “retire”.
They believe if they just put in 30-40 years of work on the plantation that they can life a life of leisure and comfort for during their old age.
The reality is The Sigma Man will never stop working until the day he dies.
We are nothing if we are not adding value to the world on a daily basis.
Some days might be more value than others, but rest assured a Man that has no goal or way to create and build will slowly wither away.
Your Perfect Day Exercise
A great way to kickstart this exercise is to write out what your schedule would look like during the perfect day.
Here is a recent example that I wrote down while living in Bangkok Thailand:
06:00 – Wake
06:00 to 06:10 – Wash face, brush teeth, make coffee
06:15 to 07:00 – Morning Success Rituals
07:00 to 10:00 – Work on editing video, posting blog, writing email using Pomodoro Technique
10:00 to 10:30 – Shower, face care
10:30 to 13:00 – Work on ebooks and digital courses using Pomodoro Technique
13:00 to 13:30 – 1st Meal of the day (6 eggs, vegetables, rice)
13:30 to 14:00 – Clean work area, apartment
14:00 to 16:00 – Gym workout
16:00 to 16:30 – Shower
16:30 to 17:30 – Errands, groceries, pay bills
17:30 to 18:30 – 2nd Meal (protein, carbs, vegetables)
18:30 to 19:30 – Daily Walk
19:30 to 20:00 – Organize for next day
20:00 to 21:00 – Study new language
21:00 to 22:00 – Reading
22:00 to 22:30 – Nightly Success Rituals
22:30 – Sleep
This is just an example of my perfect day.
What are parts of Your Perfect Day and how can you live this day each and every day?
