Notice how we don’t start the day with” bad morning”, we set out for the day to be good.
What is today going to be like? We should reframe the question. Asking what it is going to be like means that we are going to let the day happen to us rather than making it the day that we want it to be. What will I accomplish today? We should have an idea for growth every day. We should be intentional with our time and we should set our intentions.
Today I am going to get better! I am going to be more productive by finishing ____ tasks. I am going to spend time on these habits that I want to build and I will be on my phone less.
I imagine each one of you has seen a dramatic increase in your screen time. I know I have. I keep going back to social media. When I feel myself wanting a distraction I reach for my phone. What else can you do to fill that void? How can you get better with your time management today in order to get you closer to the habits and goals that you are forming?
Here is my challenge for you, instead of picking up your phone the next time you want to, find something to help with around the house. Can you take out the trash? Can you do yard work outside? The people around you do a lot for you every day. How can you repay them today?
At Vale, we start every meeting with gratitude and growth, something you're grateful for at home, something in business and 1 thing that you want to get better at. It is important because it reframes how we think about things. Look for things that are good in your life, how people help you. Then, look for things that you want to get better at.
We have more time to improve today. Are you going to use it wisely?
