MY MORNING CHECKLIST
Doing these, in this order, makes my life work much better and puts the power of habit on my side.
Awake without an alarm, fully awake and feeling rested.
Relax completely before getting up, breathing deeply. Say "I am happy for this day!"
Stretch and stress every muscle in my body before leaving bedroom.
Drink at least two full glasses of filtered water; fill on set on desk 2 32 oz. + mugs/water bottles
Eat breakfast No sugar, no white or refined products, high protein and dense carbs for smooth blood sugar); See my posted rules behind vitamin cabinet door.
Take vitamins when putting away the dishes. (Needed a "cue" that was reliable.)
Read my key overall life philosophy statement.
PART III. PLANNING/TIME MGMT
Enter any overnight and morning notes in reference or to do list, put into folders/notebooks for reference and use later.
Scan, only, emails to see if anything is important/urgent. Do not get sucked up into them. No "not on purpose" actions permitted. (See posted My Time Rules.)
Put key emails for later reference into AARead or AAReadPriority. (Completion
processing is checklisted in My Day Checklist.)
Review AAReadPriority to see if missed any action to do or tickle.
Do my daily to do list and schedule specific times for specific activities. (Check it if already done the day before.)
PART IV. DOING
Eat the biggest frog first.
Do high concentration, high creativity work of the most importance
Do my writing and LMA project priorities unless urgency requirements or higher priority item.
