How to have a R.E.D morning
We all have 24 hours in the day, so why are small business owners constantly telling me they don’t have enough time?
Wouldn’t it be great if you could unlock some of the lost and hidden time in your day?
Before I discovered the R.E.D morning, I was a person who was always saying that I had no time for reading or exercise. But those three letters changed everything.
What does R.E.D mean and why is it so transforming?
The acronym R.E.D. stands for;
Just stop and think for a moment how you could improve your day if you completed these tasks before 12 noon every-day.
You could read a book or an article (like this one) that fundamentally changes your daily routine for the better.
By making time to exercise on a regular basis you are literally extending the length and quality of your life. Couple this with exercising with family or friends and you get the additional bonus of improving the relationships in your life.
The Doing part of an R.E.D. morning is about acting on an item that has been hanging around on your To Do list. For example: reviewing your life Insurance needs.
Huge benefits will be unlocked by using R.E.D. to improve your time management including;
- Clearing blocks in a project that are holding you back from success
- Creating momentum for the rest of your day, so that completing the next items on your list will occur faster and better
- Completion of your milestones which leads to completion of your goals.
Happiness is the pursuit and completion of a worthwhile goal. So not only will you be more productive, you are going to be happier as well. Your happiness will be contagious and spread to others, and their happiness to another and another. I know that the above snowball of happiness is a little bit exaggerated. But I believe that positive small actions can lead to dramatic long-term change and success.
