Stop stumbling through the day and get the most important things done
Benjamin Franklin had a simple two question routine for starting and ending his day that he contributes the bulk of his success to:
1. Morning question: What good shall I do this day?
2. Evening question: What good have I done this day?
Simple I know, but imagine what your life would look like today if you had followed that same routine for the past 10, 20, 30 years.
How would your life be different? How much more would you have accomplished? How much less time do you think you would have wasted?
And that’s just one simple routine. Imagine how different your life would be if you had an entire set of strategically engineered routines driving your success.
Do you think you would be a force to be reckoned with?
Do you think your results would be more consistent or less consistent?
Do you think you would be more focused or less focused?
Do you think you would accomplish more or accomplish less?
Do you think you would be average or above average?
With the right set of routines you would be unstoppable.
The Advantage of Productive Routines
Productive routines help us to accomplish more than the average person because they help us to:
• Shift our attention to where it’s needed most and maximize our ability to do meaningful work.
• Protect our time and attention from distractions and interruptions.
• Make the chaos of everyday life more containable and controllable.
• Keep us from stumbling through the day and make sure we get the most important things done.
• Help us to refocus when life blows up our day
• Reduce anxiety
• Reduce decision fatigue
• Combat forgetfulness
And much, much, more
The time we spend improving our routines is time that will payoff
As we’ve seen from the Benjamin Franklin example, even a simple routine can have an incredibly profound impact on our lives.
We also know that If we don’t have our own productive routines supporting our goals, we’re leaving a lot of our potential on the table.
That’s why there’s no question that the time we spend improving our routines is time that will payoff.
