The Strong Start on Sunday

They say the week start on Monday
But the strong start on Sunday
-Kanye West

I fell into the habit of just letting my weeks start at default and just go with the flow, you know see what happens…

Not much really, Apart from responding to events as and when they happen.

The strong start on Sunday, meaning planning your week before it starts and reviewing the previous week to see what progress you did or did not make…

(Although I don’t think that’s what Ye meant)

Garret J White calls this the general’s tent, Planning your battles before you go to war.

War on yourself that is.

Start on Sunday
Review your week
Plan your week
Kill your week

How to increase Value

When you look after what you have the value increases.

We’ve all seen episodes on tv where someone has tried to pawn something that was a high value collectable but they never looked after it so it is now worthless.

I worked with someone once who had like a first edition Lord Of The Rings book, she said it would have been worth 9-11grand (I think she said) but she lent it to her mother who didn’t look after it when she read it and it’s now worthless.

When you look after your body its value goes up, you can produce more, have more energy and well the alternative is if your not looking after it then you’re probably dying. Without your body, you can’t do anything.

When you look after your partner, The relationship grows, You two become one. One unstoppable force.

When you look after your business it to goes up in value. Your staff are happy, your customers come back.

What you look after grows. Don’t take it for granted.

Can I do More

Can I Do More

‘If you’re not living in a place of growth, Then your acting as if you’re on the way out’
-Kevin Heart The Decision

If we’re not growing we’re dying, Tony Robbins said that Life is growth or death right, everything is growing or dying.

So when we come to a place where stop growing, We slowly start to decay.

So we need to ask ourselves the question…
Can I do more.

Can I get up a little earlier
Can I practice 2 more days per week
Can I do this
Can I do that

The answer is normally
Yes.

We can always do more, but we choose not to.
We choose death overgrowth.

Let’s start growing and do more.

Reacting adds fire to the fuel

Reacting in the heat of the moment normally sets ablaze a match where a match should not have been lit.

Like a tiny spark in a Forrest, causing the Forrest to burn down.

Reacting in the moment has a similar effect, it burns the fuel when it should have been stored away.

Sometimes taking that extra second to think through your actions are all it takes to stop the match from being struck.
