Waking up early, has been acknowledged by many self-help gurus to improve your productivity and your quality of life. It’s because when you wake up early, your mindset is already set to continue the momentum and proactively live out the day.
The Bruce Lee Challenge starts by asking yourself one question: “If you could make one simple change on a daily basis that would make the most significant positive change in your life, what would it be? What happens next is up to you …”
Here is how you can establish your morning routine using The Bruce Lee Challenge.
Step 1: Choose your goal. This could be simply starting a morning routine.
Step 2: Decide your key objective. Here you are looking to break your goal down into specific and measurable metrics that you can track. For example, let’s say you have the following goals: 1) Wake up every morning by 6am; 2) Run 5 days a week (starting at 6:15am); 3) Read for 30 minutes every morning.
Step 3: Commit for 21 days. Human mind takes nearly 21 days to adjust to major life changes. So, try sticking to your new morning routine for 21 days and see what happens.
Step 4: Take immediate action.
Step 5: Make a decision. After you have committed for 21 days, now it is time to make a decision. Are you going to continue your new morning routine or not?
You can create the best strategy, outline successful and achievable goals, and have the greatest intentions; however, you have to want it. You have to become obsessed with it. The key to success with anything is discipline plus desire. So just get started now!
When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you’ll be successful.
