Let’s Give It A Try
I am just sitting in a hotel reception area and browsing the net and I came across a little article by Miles Hanson. In it he tells you of 5 things that can change your life. I know people read these and think that reading them is good enough; how many of us actually do them after reading.. well maybe we should just do that.
5 Things That Can Change Your Life
1 Wake up early – This allows you to have a productive morning routine such as meditating, stretching, reading etc. and starting your day on the right foot. This will get you into momentum and improve all areas of your life
2 Read 5 pages (minimum) every single day. Even if you’ve had a bad or busy day, don’t go to sleep until you’ve read 5 pages. You will often read far more, but the point it getting started.
3The most successful, influential and powerful people on this planet meditate. It can be hard to get started, but if you stick with it for long enough you see amazing benefits to all aspects of your life.
4 Break a sweat every day. The basic rule of thumb, make yourself sweat every day. Whether it’s an hour workout or a simply doing jumping jacks in your office for 15 minutes, make it happen.
5 | Take Action. Talking about habits is fun. It makes us feel good because we are looking forward to a happier, more efficient way of living our lives.
But, as a society, we have become complete over-consumers on so many levels (me included). There is a never-ending stream of information that’s increasing exponentially.
I love learning and consuming new things, but I noticed that there is a threshold. There is a point of diminishing return that we all hit pretty quickly.
We love self-development books, podcasts, and articles, but how often do we actually take what we learn and try it long enough to turn it into a long-term habit that legitimately improves our life?
The trick is being able to filter out the noise and consistently take action on the important stuff. One of the best videos I have found on this topic is, by Stephen Duneier.
I hope this helps.
