A simple message that can have powerful implications.
Yesterday, I didn't get much done at work. When I left I felt overwhelmed with the amount still left to do. This carried over into the gym. I was very limp, for a lack of a better term, and didn't do the exercises with vigor or enthusiasm. It was very hard to get myself out of the negative stupor I put myself in. When I left the gym I was mad that I didn't produce my best which then carried over to my girlfriend, who did nothing wrong, but I projected my negativity onto her for the rest of the night causing tension between us.
If I had went at my work with more effort and completed what I needed to do, then the rest of my day would have gone much more smoothly and I would have produced better results in every aspect of my life.
Imagine the beginning of your day as a small, fist-sized snowball at the top of a hill. You want it to roll down and become a giant boulder of snow; firm, powerful, and resolute. How do you do that? By giving it a small, but firm, nudge.
Get enough sleep (mandatory). Make a big breakfast. Meditate. Stretch. Go for a walk. Make your bed. Any and all of these things (and many others) will build the foundation of your day and put you in the correct, positive mindset for tackling the rest of it.
We aren't robots. We can't just perform a function on command, no matter how much we would like to. Start the day off right and those mini-successes will carry over into big things later on.
