Okay, ready to achieve success? Good, let’s begin…
Approximate Time to Complete: 1 Day
Schedule a Time to Learn and Implement
Step one before anything can begin to change for your business, or your life, is for you to schedule a time to learn and implement.
To do this you need to know the best time for you to work without any distractions. This may be early in the morning before anyone else is up, or any other time slot that you have without any distractions for about an hour.
I recommend you write it down on your calendar every day for the next week.
Know that this is not going to be a definitive time, unless it works for you.
Every time you learn something new you are going to need a trial and error period to find the perfect schedule.
Your calendar is the key to creating a successful business and balance between your business and personal life.
I hang a large desk calendar on my wall to do this. Everyone can see your schedule and you can quickly glance at it.
You will learn about other tools later on, but for not I recommend that you purchase a large desk calendar if you do not already have one.
What do you want out of this?
Are you ready to put forth the effort?
This is not a quick fix that happens overnight. It is going to take time and effort. You need to know, deep down how much time and energy you are willing to put into yourself. Whether you know you have 2 hours a day or have no idea where you are going to find the time; you need to prepare yourself for this journey.
Allow yourself to accept this opportunity knowing that you will have your ups and downs.
You will find somethings are easy to accomplish while you would rather have your teeth pulled than complete some of the actions.
Tell yourself, right now, that you give yourself permission to complete all actions in this guide. And, promise yourself that you will do everything to the best of your ability, no matter how much you would rather skip it or do something else.
As we go along you will alter and adjust your schedule. That is fine. Actually, it’s perfect! Each time you learn something new, figure out something isn’t working, or discover another time slot will work better you should adjust your schedule.
The idea behind this guide is that you will use it however it best fits into your lifestyle.
With that being said, it is important that you set aside some time now to work through this guide.
If you want to have more energy, more time, more freedom, better moods, better sleep, and better health then you need to schedule time each day to work through this guide.
30, 60, or 90 minutes a day works best. This gives you time to read, absorb, and take action. Scheduling your time at the same time every day will help you make it into a habit that is easily remembered to do.
Do not worry about having the perfect amount of time scheduled. Some of the actions may take one, two, or three days to complete.
It’s about dedicating time to yourself and trusting the process as well as yourself. You will find success if you follow the guide and complete each action.
Actions Steps: 1. Download the blueprint, if you have not done so already. 2. Make a commitment to yourself that you will complete all actions in this guide. 3. Purchase a large calendar. 4. Schedule time for completing this guide and write it on the calendar.
As a summary, you are about to go through this process –
- Discover how you can create more time each day to accomplish all your tasks and still have time to do the things you enjoy.
- Build up your energy levels so that you don’t have the “end of the day crash” and are able to maintain high levels of energy throughout your day.
- Optimize your time and schedule so you can stop working long hours and have more freedom to live the life you want, enjoy more time with your family, and take that long overdue vacation.
- Create habits that allow you to have better moods and improved sleep quality so that you can finally increase your productivity and get more done.
- Learn how to maintain better health at your desired weight with less stress.
In order to achieve these goals I will teach you six modules, which must be completed in this set order for best results. They are –
- Create A Daily Exercise Routine
- Create Sustainable Habits and Rituals
- Uncover Your Values and Set Your Priorities
- Create and Accomplish Goals that Work
- Optimize Your Organization
- Master Your Productivity & Gain More Freedom
While it only takes a few moments to read the above lists, the actual process to successfully complete each step can take days, weeks, and even months.
To keep you on track I’ve included an estimated time frame to complete each module. I encourage you not to rush ahead as successful completion of each module is dependent on whether you did the work in the previous module. For example, there is no point trying to create habits and rituals (Module E) if you don’t have any goals (Module D).
The teaching methodology I use in this guide is based on my experience during the previous 5+ years building a business, reaching and maintaining my healthy weight, and raising a family. It draws heavily on tutorials presented in this blog.
The core focus is how to lose weight and maintain a healthy weight, in particular creating habits and setting goals that help you achieve success.
I recommend you dedicate 100% of your focus on each module until you feel you have successfully completed it.
Although we focus on losing weight and maintaining a healthy weight, what you are about to learn are techniques and strategies that can be applied to all areas of your life in order to become successful and have more freedom. It doesn’t matter if you have a large or small amount of weight to lose, or a small or large business, these concepts are important to you if you plan to be successful.
Since the techniques and strategies I share are easy concepts, and the tools you will need are free or of little cost, I recommend you use them to your full advantage. Instructions on how to begin the process are in the next step.
Throughout this guide I point you to various articles, podcasts (MP3s you can download and listen to), and videos. Each of these resources were created at different times and some of the content may confuse you. Always return to this guide when you get lost because it is the road map that threads all the different resources together into a cohesive process.
I promise if you focus on studying the resources, using the tools, and implementing the action steps I give you as you move through this guide, you will learn a tremendous amount about how to lose weight, maintain a healthy weight, have more energy, have more time, have better moods, get better sleep, and have better overall health. You may even find that you will never have to diet or put in overtime again!
Now let’s begin at the beginning, Module A starts next…
