Dan Sullivan of Strategic Coach is an inspiration to entrepreneurs everywhere, which is why I always appreciate his words of wisdom. Dan calls himself a simplifier—he takes processes and makes them even simpler. When his email came across my inbox, I knew I had to share it with you.
A Daily Morning Routine
If you’re looking to be even more successful, and find even more inspiration in your day, creating good habits is a great place to start. That’s why Dan Sullivan proposes his specific morning routine—one that has been a game-changer for him personally.
Having morning routines and habits can keep you grounded in an otherwise uncertain world, and it can also keep you on track with your goals. It starts with questions, which help to keep you focused on your goals. Here are the three things you should ask yourself to stay on a trajectory for success:
1. What’s my biggest danger for today?
Or, “What am I afraid of?” At the heart of this question is structure. What you’re really doing is assessing your fears. What are you afraid of not doing, and how will that impact your success?
Asking this question as a part of your morning routine sets you up to take action in the face of fear. And it keeps your fear from growing, like when you put off a project and it snowballs, progressively becomes more overwhelming.
This question, consequently, can also help you filter out tasks that aren’t meant for you. If you’re dreading a task, and you’re dreading the consequences of not doing it, it’s likely a task you should delegate. You’re still taking action by delegating, and it gives you more freedom to do what you want to do.
2. What is my biggest opportunity for today?
This is your chance to examine what you’re looking forward to in your day. If you follow these opportunities that you’re excited about, and take action, you can put yourself further ahead.
In the first question, we addressed the importance of handling fear and delegating tasks. Following what energizes you is another great way to identify how you should fill your day, and what tasks you should delegate.
Good tasks, activities, or opportunities are ones that will leave you feeling as energized as when you started (if not more energized).
3. What strengths do I have that I can reinforce today?
The third question in this morning routine is about building confidence. It’s about taking action so that you can practice your strengths, hone them, and come out on the other side more confident and capable.
There’s no better way to celebrate your strengths than by using them! If you continually work on your strengths, you allow them to develop and blossom. If you don’t use them, they atrophy.
You likely know that it feels great to use your strengths, so don’t be afraid to use them often. This will help you feel more confident and step into your full potential. It also helps you be as energized as possible.
Setting Your Foundation with a Morning Routine
The world is so overwhelming right now, and if you’re an entrepreneur, your mind is probably being pulled in a million directions. This exercise helps you simplify and focus on what you can do, today. It’s about pulling you into the moment and cutting out the background noise so that you can focus.
These questions are tied to the emotions you probably feel each morning—fear, excitement, and confidence. When you can work through these emotions and apply them to your day, you can move from a place of inaction to action.
There’s no better time than the present to plunge into the things you’re excited about, take action on things you’re fearful of, and celebrate your strengths. Incorporating these principles into your morning routine will help you take action and be more successful.
