Famed author and motivational speaker Robin Sharma often shares a morning routine that starts your day on a smart path. He calls it the 20 + 20 + 20 Rule. It’s designed to put your brain in gear, give you more focus and stamina, and help you be relaxed and motivated all day.
In 2013, Mr. Sharma wrote:
The 20 + 20 + 20 Rule he teaches to his business clients to unleash massive energy and productivity:
First 20 minutes of your day in exercise.
Second 20 minutes reviewing your goals and daily plan.
Last 20 minutes reading something inspiring or listening to audiobooks so you outperform who you were yesterday.
Try this CONSISTENTLY for 7 days. The results will WOW you.
Robin calls this The Holy Hour, 60 minutes at the beginning of your day that you devote to self-mastery and personal development. As an integral part of The Holy Hour, he advocates keeping a written plan and refreshing it regularly. “Research has found that the part of brain connected to writing is also connected to motor activity,” he said. “So by writing your goals, you are setting up the motor part of your brain to execute what is important to your life.”
Give the 20+20+20 a test for a week and let me know how you feel!
