How to Design a Day You Want

The night before, imagine a productive day that you want the next day.
Imagine how you spend each hour of your time in that productive day. Imagine the activities you want to do in that day. Imagine what you want to achieve by the end of the day. Imagine sleeping at the end of the day feeling satisfied.
Imagine it as clearly as you can.
Now, plan it out on a piece of paper – hour by hour. Start from the time you wake up until the time you go to sleep. In between those two times, you are free to design the day you want to have, just like the one you imagined.
You might be thinking, “But, I’m not going to achieve all of the things I write down.”
Well yeah, not with that attitude.
The point of this exercise isn’t to hit the target 100%. The point of this exercise is to have a target to hit, and to aim in the direction of your target. At the very least, your arrow should be flying in the direction that you want, even if it doesn’t hit the bullseye.
From there, you adjust your aim so that the next shot will be better.
Nothing is perfect in the beginning. In fact, nothing is perfect in this world. You just start and get better and better. Even if you get only 50% of what you want to achieve, that is much better than zero.
From there, you can work on increasing that percentage to 60% or 70% or 80%. Even 51% is considered good! Any improvement you make in the process should be acknowledged and celebrated, because you have progressed in the right direction.
Even if you only improve by 1% each day, that’s 30% in a month! Small improvements toward your goal will add up, and they will make a big difference in the end. You just have to start and be patient with the process.
