Yesterday my client said to me, “I really love this time after Labor Day.”
For him it’s an energizing sprint into the holidays, where he seeks to consolidate his year.
Over the next few months he’s focused on driving home those things he’s been working on all year, as well as laying the piping for next year.
The last two weeks in August he takes time to slow it down, but this weekend he was in full swing, winding it up to finish the year.
So much of getting what you want comes from building momentum.
Just like hitting the gym once a year on January 1, success doesn’t come from what you do one day a year, but from what you wake up and do every day.
Showing up his best my client knows that he drives his best results, but it’s also through building this momentum every day that he feels his best.
This is the case for most of us.
We can get our knickers in a knot thinking too much about what we want to get done, but we feel our greatest when we just dive into doing it.
It’s for this reason that over the last couple of weeks we’ve been taking the thinking out of it, and laying out two systems for my client to get back in the swing.
Systematically Use Your Day
As I constantly rant about, all things get better through a systematic approach.
You could wake up tomorrow and try to get dressed by wading through a massive pile of clothes that you keep stacked up in your closet, or you can dress easily when you systematically organize your clothes. (e.g. keep socks together)
Each and every part of your day can work the same.
You can wake up in the morning and allow your mind to run into the hundreds of things that may or may not matter to your day, or you can wake up and direct your mind into your systematic approach for your day.
How do you best get organized to crush your day?
