How To Create And Live Your Perfect Day - The best way

By: Barry Dunlop Topics: Entrepreneurship Mindset Productivity


How would your Perfect Day be defined ?


What would you do, who would you do it with and how would you feel?

Ask most people these questions and you will get replies like…

… a feeling of #accomplishment, a big business deal closed, a promotion at work, time with good friends, family time and that mystical feeling of being in “the zone”.


But how do you balance closing a business deal with spending quality time with loved ones or getting a work promotion with family time?


When I think about my Perfect Day a picture #quote comes to my #mind.


Building Blocks For A #Perfect Day

Solid foundations are essential…

=>> Create a Not-To-Do List!

Quite simply – a list of things #you do not do under any circumstances!

I am not here to make any moral judgement on what a Not To-Do list may include – but for example it could include at one end deciding to never do your own laundry while at the other end it could be to never discuss politics or to never use profanities. We are all different and what may be on my not-to-do list may well not be on yours and vice versa.


=>> Create your own set of Life Rules


Now most of us have admirable beliefs and values and hold ourselves up to high standards – but not so many of us write them down. I was inspired to more carefully define my own set of Life Rules


As an example I repeat below one of Craig’s life rules (which is also something for the Not-To-Do list) below…


I do not engage in confrontations with anyone, in-person or online. This is a waste of time and energy. If I have caused harm, I apologize and fix the situation. And then I take a deep breath, relax, breathe out, and re-focus my efforts back on my work and goals.
