Here is my question for you this morning. What’s most important to you?
What is the one thing you really want to do on a daily basis that would make a big difference, but you just can’t seem to find the time for?
What Habit Would Make a Real Impact On Your Life?
In short, what good habit do you want to cultivate that would make a real impact on your life? Think about this for a moment. It could be in any area of your life from exercise and healthy eating to self-improvement or getting ahead in business or at your job. It could be working on your relationship with your kids, finding time for creative pursuits, or getting in the habit of reading every morning.
Once you’ve figured out what you want to work on, what you want to improve, and what’s important to you, think about how you can make it part of your morning routine.
Visualize Your Perfect Morning
Sit back and imagine your perfect morning. It isn’t stressed or rushed. Most importantly it’s a day when you have time for everything on your list. Maybe it means having time for a long shower. Maybe it’s going for a run before breakfast. Maybe it’s having a few minutes to connect with your spouse over coffee or maybe it’s carving out an hour first thing in the morning to work on your side-business.
That’s a lot of “maybes” but the key is to start with what’s most important to you and think about how you could fit it into your morning routine. Remember, you’re just dreaming and imagining at this point. We’ll work on figuring out where to find the time to fit it in and how to make it all work out later on. For now I simply want you to paint a vivid picture of what your new morning could look like.
I want you to become very clear on what you want that perfect morning to look like. Imagine it in as much detail as you possibly can. Write it down in a journal, on a piece of paper, or share it on our facebook page so that you can refer back to it as needed.
In short, define your perfect morning.
Know Your Destination
Why is this so important?
Because you can’t start to make any meaningful changes until you know what your goals are.
You need to know your destination before you can start to pick a route and figure out how you’ll get there. That’s what today’s task is all about. It’s figuring out where you want to get to. Don’t stop until you have it figured out and firmly pictured in your mind.
Sometimes it seems like the word “mess” is synonymous with “kids”. If you’ve ever found a mystery stain on your couch or stepped on a LEGO block while barefoot, you know exactly what I’m talking about. They just love making messes! I get it. Being a mom is tough work,...read more

If I asked you what the messiest and most unorganized room in your house is, what would you say? I know that for me personally, the kitchen is definitely one of them. Even though our kitchens can be extremely unorganized at times, it definitely has the potential to be...read more
Have you ever heard someone say that our world is getting smaller? Unless that person was Kyrie Irving, who may or may not still think the world is flat, what they likely mean by that is that access to other people and cultures is improving as we become more...read more
Kitchen cabinets are great. We can store so many things inside of them, there’s often lots of room, they’re extremely useful, and they allow us to walk into a clean kitchen without seeing a huge mess. But after filling up all of those cabinets, it can be a nightmare...read more
