This resource could be a possible recipe on how to do more, more and more and get results in 10 days. But it isn’t. It’s the process of creating compelling rituals.
Things to consider first:
- They are ten consecutive days, without rest.
- Everything that written here is unsolicited recommendations. Feel free to ignore them.
- The idea is that you don’t completely copy it, but to design your recipe, your rituals. The rituals that feel great.
- Be severe in execution, put your rituals before everything else. At least during these ten days of the experiment.
Go for it.
The key to how to do more – the rituals
Set 10 days and be consistent.
- Zero work, emails, WhatsApp or social networks after 9 pm.
- Smartphone, phone or email cannot be the first thing you look at in a morning
- Instead of watching the news or the radio at the beginning of the day, listen to music, read or watch inspiring content.
- Next, to your bedside table (or in bed) a notebook to write down reflections, thoughts, and things you have learned.
- Ritual preparation
How to do more
- 90 minutes before going to sleep, first, drink something beneficial (and hot) for your body. Miso soup for example
- Sleep the hours your body needs (study your sleep/rest). Go to bed as soon as you can.
- Wake up early without an alarm clock.
- Do not touch your smartphone, PC, laptop, tablet, TV or radio. Keep all these devices away.
- As soon as you wake up: practice the Iceman breathing exercise. It will take you about 13 minutes.
- Perform 10 minutes of meditation guided by Headspace – to begin with.
- Stretch gently for 5 minutes.
- Do sports for 20 – 30 minutes. Bike (static), swimming, running, power yoga, CrossFit, etc. But only if you have time, as long as the family, commitments and other tasks you may have allowed you to do so
- Prepare a breakfast that you fancy and that will give you the most energy. Without forgetting that it should be as healthy as possible.
- Write in your notebook (or Evernote) the three or four most crucial tasks of the day. It’s not a big list; it’s those that need to be done at the end of the day.
- Start work by addressing those three or four responsibilities. Everything else will procrastinate.
- The rest of the day is up to you.
(Add the following steps. )
The ingredients and preparation of the rituals should go with some instructions:
- Rest will give you energy, power, and willpower.
- Dedicate at least 30 minutes a day to thinking and seeing things as they are (apparently).
- Observe how you respond to what comes into your life, control your reactions.
- Remove all unwanted things and people from your day.
- Understand what matters to your people (including clients or bosses) and yourself each day and start from there.
- You need breathing and sports techniques to keep you moving and in the present.
- Reward yourself plenty of times a day (micromoments)
Then, with all this put into practice, you will know how to do more, more, more and more than the old version of yourself.
