Last week I saw a fantastic quote in a Facebook group.
It was a quote from ol’ Albie Einstein.
I was never a fan of the Seinfeld show.
Just didn’t see what all the excitement was about.
I was, however, a fan of how Jerry Seinfeld got started in comedy.
The story goes…
He credits his success to this dumb, yet wildly effective method. Every January, he would hang up a large calendar on his wall.
Every day that he wrote new material, he had the pleasure of drawing a big red “X” over that day.
Drawing the Xs was quite rewarding, so he continued doing it. Eventually, he created a chain of red Xs.
The idea was to never break the chain.
In fact, there is a website called, you guessed it…. http://dontbreakthechain.com/
I put my own twist on it, and took a page out of the Andy Frisella playbook, and am tracking my wins each day.
Here is my calendar hanging on my wall in my office with Ws….
W = Win the Day
I try and put daily deposits in four categories; mind, health, relationships & wealth.
Over the last eight days, I have been perfect.
Typically, I would get lazy around Thursdays/Fridays, and would slack off on the weekends.
Not no more.
Since tracking this, I have noticed…
- A boost in confidence
- A sense of accomplishment
- Amanda & I getting along great
- Much happier
- An increase in mental clarity
- More fulfillment
- A drastic increase in productivity
- More energy
A few of the many benefits and feelings I have experienced.This is such a stupid simple exercise, but it’s been so worth it.
Go out and buy a desk calendar.
Hang it on your wall.
Come up with 4 – 7 daily tasks that you want to complete each & everyday.
When you compete all the tasks put a X or a W on the day.
Do it again the next day, and the following day.
Do it for a week.
Report back to me.
You can do anything, once you stop trying to do everything.
