The Daily Review
In Dutch there’s a saying “getting out of bed with the wrong leg.” This is used to describe someone who’s irritable, grumpy or who’s easily annoyed. As this saying implies: starting your day off incorrectly has an huge impact for te rest of the day. If you start your day healthy, with a healthy breakfast and exercising for example, you’re much more likely to make healthy decisions for the rest of the day. While if you didn’t start your day out eating healthy, you’ll more easily think “it doesn’t matter if I don’t eat something healthy now.”
Whatever your daily routine is in the morning, colours the rest of your day. Therefor, if you want to succeed in whatever it is you’d like to achieve or have in life, doesn’t it make sense to start getting out of bed with the “right foot?”
One of the most important things to do is setting the right mindset. Your mindset determines the decisions you make and actions you take, and leads to your success and happiness and create your character.
In that light, inspired by the book “Make Today Count” from leadership expert John C. Maxwell, here is my “daily review”:
Just for Today…
Just for today… I will choose and display the right attitudes.
Just for today… I will determine and act on important priorities.
Just for today… I will know and follow healthy guidelines.
