Tons of people drift through their day with little to no self awareness of what they are doing or where they want to be. A lack of routine in a mans life results in an absence of conviction.
People without a routine lack ambition to achieve what they want in life. If you were to ask them they would reply with “umm” and then “ehm”, nothing.
If you want to get your life in order then you need to begin by building the daily habits of a winner.
How Are You Spending Your Day?
There are only 24 hours in a day, which everyone should know by now. With your average 8 hours of sleep most people need to perform at their best, you’re left with 16 hours. Along with eating, drinking and other tasks (Shit Shower Shave etc) you have approximately 14 hours.
How you spend these hours will dictate the path your life takes.
Are you willing to spend an hour exercising to improve your physical strength and fitness?
Will you read for an hour to improve your minds intellectual ability?
Will you make proactive steps towards your aspirations?
These are questions that you should already know the answer to if you’re reading this.
The average American watches 4.3 hours of TV a day, sickening. The vast majority of which will be spent watching the news or keeping up with some D-list celebrity.
While you continue to watch someones reality TV show your own life is crumbling around you.
You should aim to go to sleep and wake up at the same time every day. This will give structure to your day and ensure you have the best chance of being refreshed.
There needs to be a complete separation of work and play.
This means that you don’t pretend to do work while scrolling Facebook. This destructive habit will lead to endless hours of desk time with zero accomplishment.
Stop watching Netflix every night might also be a good start too.
You Need A Routine
You need a routine to enable you to get the most out of your day. This is how you will achieve real success.
What do you want to achieve?
Figure this out and then figure out what you need to do to get there.
Getting started is the hardest part, the journey is the fulfilment.
Once you’ve got your routine then it’s a matter of putting it into practice, day after day, month after month.
Minimise play and maximise work in the here and now for long lasting glory.
