Retirement Morning Makeover Challenge: Day 2

Let's Define YOUR Best Morning

Your best morning -- who doesn’t want a best or what some might call, a perfect morning?  So how do we define what that is? Well let’s begin with a few questions as we think about what your best day might look like.

What’s most important to you?

What is the one thing you really want to do on a daily basis that would make a big difference, but you just can’t seem to find the time for?

In short, what good habit do you want to cultivate that would make a real impact on your life?

Think about this for a moment. It could be in any area of your life from exercise and healthy eating, to self-improvement or getting ahead in business or at your job (yes, some of us are still working). It could be working on your relationship with your kids or significant other, finding time for creative pursuits, or getting in the habit of reading every morning.

Once you’ve figured out what you want to work on, what you want to improve, and what’s important to you, we’ll think about how you can make it part of your morning routine.

Sit back and imagine your perfect morning. It isn’t stressed or rushed. Most importantly, it’s a day when you have time for everything on your list. Maybe it means having time for a long shower. Maybe it’s going for a morning walk before breakfast. Maybe it’s having a few minutes to connect with your spouse over coffee, or maybe it’s carving out an hour first thing in the morning to work on your side-business.

That’s a lot of “maybes” but the key is to start with what’s most important to you, and to think about how you can best fit it into your morning routine. Remember, you’re just dreaming and imagining at this point. We’ll work on figuring out where to find the time to fit it in, and how to make it all work out later on. For now I simply want you to paint a vivid picture of what your new morning could look like. 

I want you to become very clear on what you want that perfect morning to look like. Imagine it in as much detail as you possibly can. Write it down in a journal or on a piece of paper that you can refer back to as needed. In short, describe what your best or perfect morning would look like.

Why is this so important? Because you can’t start to make any meaningful changes until you know what your goals are. You need to know your destination before you can start to pick a route and figure out how you’ll get there. That’s what today’s task is all about. It’s figuring out where you want to get to. Don’t stop until you have it figured out and firmly pictured in your mind.
