A New Life Chapter…

I have been reading (or rather listening in the car) to the book “Organize Tomorrow Today”(OTT) by Dr. Jason Seek and Tom Bartow.  Without going into the details which will come later, this has encouraged me to seek out what would be the perfect day for me.  Also being inspired by Jim Kwik, I would like to master the first three hours of the day.  Kwik actually attempts to control the first and last hours of the day.  I state the first three hours as in OTT they find that it usually takes 3 hours to get your three most important tasks done in the day.  So I’m trying to combine two ideas into one.  The elements in this 3 hour time span should speak to the pd5, which is my own thinking around the domains that are important to master (I will explain this in another writing, sooner if you ask me to); vision development, health, financial fitness, time management, and effective communication.  I feel that these areas are critical success domains for life, master these and master life.   With that in mind, in each of those areas I need to think about the things that should be done (to avoid errors of omission) and things that should not be done (to avoid errors of commission).  Elements that need to be in the  morning include: 

  • Meditation – 5 minutes with Muse
  • Running – 5 minutes fast (now at 2.5)
  • Bike for 20 minutes while reading Chronological Bible
  • 150 Pushups – 15 minutes with stretching
  • Output Writing for 25 minutes for my vision.  In this manner I honor a biblical principle to honor God first.  
  • Strategic Reflection 25 minutes; making sure that I am on track, and figuring out and reviewing priorities. 
  • 45 minutes to get ready for work (better if prepared the night before).  

That is a total of 130 minutes, with is just over two hours and I am out the door (I like it).  So best if my day starts at 5:00 am, and I will have accomplished alot for myself and God by 8:00 am, and ready to address the needs of others.  

My last thought has to do with the reading of the bible.  This is a very important piece and speaks to the issue allowing the apple seed to become the apple tree (happy to explain if you are interested).  Good ground is discussed in Mathew around 13:19-23; when we read with understanding, and experience joy in what we read (put smile on our face), and stay present to avoid the worries that the world can bring, we will be good ground, and with regular nourishment (prayer), you almost assure that you will become, who you were purposed to be…

Wish me luck in getting my tasks done:)

Amen
