In my book, Future Pull, I suggested the adoption of a daily practice. The daily practice ideally would include quiet time connecting to the Universe, clearly visualizing your ideal life and the achievement of your goals, and celebrating your successes so far. The daily practice could be either carried out in the morning or in the evening.
While this ‘before my coffee gets cold’ approach could be part of a daily practice, it’s really more of a standard. What you actually do is open to change depending on what your goal is and where you are in the achievement of it, but the focus of this approach is doing at least one thing that moves you closer to it.
That could be going to the gym if your goal is to become fitter. It could be writing a blog if your goal is to build your online presence. It might be writing 3 pages if your goal is to write a book or decluttering one small area – a drawer or a shelf – if your goal is to lighten your load. It might be to set up a day’s worth of Twitter feeds on SocialOomph. For me, a good goal to achieve before my coffee gets cold would be to eliminate 500 old emails.
I think it’s such a good idea in fact, that tomorrow, I resolve to do exactly that. Tomorrow, before my coffee gets cold, I will eliminate 500 emails on both of my accounts.
What will you do before your coffee gets cold?
