how to improve your morning routine // good morning, good life

The first 1000 people who click the link in the description will get 2 free months of Skillshare Premium: https://skl.sh/mariana32 Buy Amy’s book: https://amzn.to/2Baljer One of the biggest cores of a balanced and productive morning routine is eliminating decision fatigue. Decision fatigue is that feeling you get when you lose half an hour deciding on almost meaningless things like which cereal you’ll want for breakfast or what’s the color of lipstick you’ll be putting on today. Those choices are really not that important for your overall well being that morning, but you still spend a lot of time thinking about those things without even noticing it. Furthermore, because you’re still sleepy and trying to deal with a whole day ahead of you, you’ll take more time making those choices and will feel more frustrated when making them. This will make your morning much more stressful. Eliminating your decision making time will make sure you reduce as much as possible any lost time in the morning. Being realistic is fundamental. There is no such thing as a perfect morning and you will always find obstacles. Having other people around the house will disturb the perfect flow of morning habits you’ll try to achieve and having a smartphone beeping constantly during those early hours will achieve the same result. The message here is that creating a balanced morning routine isn’t the same as being a morning person, or actually finding a lot of enjoyment and peace in the morning. You should strive for something a little better, or at least more efficiency, and then give yourself a pat on the back for it. Don’t compare yourself to others. Not everyone is able to start the day off with a smile. You may be going through a hard time. You may be sick, or worried that someone else is sick, or maybe you’ve been through a heartbreaking experience. If you don’t feel joy the moment you wake up, that’s fine. You’ll get through this. **”Planning only prepares you for what you can expect to come ahead”** but life will always get in the way. Even if you plan your morning by the minute, there’s almost a one hundred percent guarantee it won’t go exactly like that. The secret here is to learn how to get out of the rut and stay as consistent as is allowed and not as consistent as you want to. Finding at least one or two habits per morning that you need to guarantee that will happen is a way to kickstart your morning. These can change throughout time but will make you feel at least a little bit more accomplished, even if you don’t do anything else. Right now, my two habits that surely happen every morning are doing my skincare routine and taking my dog on a walk. It can be something entirely different for you but what really matters is that you get into a streak of always being able to complete at least one or two habits in your morning routine before you start incorporating more activities. And of course that the thing that will help you the most in gaining that major motivation boost is trying to make the morning the most creative and ambition-driven part of your day. Amy is a true believer that you should find your passion – and by finding your passion, you’ll find the fuel you need to be energetic in those early hours. Learning a new skill or a new language, or working on a major project, as practical as it can be, will work as the core of your routine – that passion will justify why you’re waking up so early and all the other small habits will revolve around that major creative outlet as a way to support it. You’ll eat, go on a walk and shower because you want your body to be prepared to engage in a creative or challenging activity; you’ll exercise, do your skincare routine or clean your house because you want to feel your best and want to prepare the space around you accordingly for that task. You should also remember that planning out your morning routine in your calendar is a good way to make sure that you’re weighing your priorities correctly. Saying “yes” to a new event or a new task to complete is saying no to something else. Piling up things in your schedule because you’re seeking other people’s approval or looking forward to staying busy all the time isn’t a good way to invest your time into a hobby or an activity that actually makes you feel like you’re developing your skills or simply feel joyful. That’s why it’s important to bring at least a little bit of mindfulness to your morning through bullet journaling or morning pages *or do laundry* and simply allowing yourself to do other more mundane tasks while being aware of what you’re doing and feeling. Crossing tasks off your to-do list isn’t necessarily a sign of productivity or a successful day – putting mindful thought behind that to-do list and figuring out where it gets you headed is what will help you create a morning that ir worth waking up to.

how to plan and manage your projects efficiently

Start creating your projects with Notion here: https://bit.ly/mariananotionteams Project management is the application of skills, tools and methods that reach a certain achievement, through completion of multiple steps. A project is usually a long-term goal composed of several smaller tasks, and as such the amount of moving parts will usually render the standard to-do list useless right at the start of your project. For successful and stress-free project management you should rely on a system that is a little bit more robust and allows you to input valuable information and data while maintaining a structured and reliable system. Whether you are starting a new project, in the middle of one or collaborating with multiple people I’m sure these tips will help you and if some of them are already familiar to you this should serve as a way to check if you are being as efficient as possible with your projects. I’ve been using Notion for more than one year to basically organize every single project in my life so I am happy to say that they are sponsoring today’s video… but more about that later. An effective project management system should be able to **(1) clearly define the goals and objectives of your project, (2) define tasks, (3) manage a timeline and (4) be adjustable.** You should be defining your project goals in a smart way; in other words, they need to be specific, measurable, assignable, relevant and timely and you should be clearly able to identify deliverables, costs, timeframes, resources and stakeholders. But more about that on that video I uploaded months ago about smart goals. ******The project management software you use should be able to incorporate this easily and that information should be accessible at all times. You don’t have to use anything fancy, you might just find that a simple to-do list will do the trick for you. Setting your expectations in the early stages of the project is essential – you should know, with a certain level of detail, what are your expectations for the project at hands including some essential elements of it, including the quality of work, the different assignments that need to be completed in a specific timeframe and the type of tools and data everyone will have to deal with. When managing your project, it’s important to make sure that you are preparing the environment (for instance, the collaborative software you use to work) in a productive way that is packed with information and tools that will make sure the work gets done. You’ll then have to clearly define the tasks required to complete the project. These should be broken down as much as possible and, at an early stage, should include detailed information about their completion. Using a table that allows you to track progress on your tasks, as well as including valuable details, prices, dates and other information is a good way to keep track of individual tasks during a long-term period. Managing a timeline effectively will assign those tasks specific deadlines and that’s a good way to improve accountability and have a good glance of everything. It’s also important to setup your tools so that your timeline is adjustable so you can take into account any unforeseen problems that may arise. The important thing here is to take note of those adjustments so that any changes in your original plan can be saved – this makes sure that you create accountability while also keeping an organized record of major decisions during the project. Adjusting your project during its progress is also important because you can’t predict everything. Being prepared to shift things around and knowing *what* to shift is important to guarantee that despite any setbacks, you’re able to make your work more flexible. Delegating tasks to your team in a clear way is a big part of this intelligent management and providing the right organization tools will make sure that shifting between tasks or smaller sub-projects isn’t hard because all the data is listed and provided accordingly. It’s also important to review your work periodically. Performing an exhaustive review of the project will help you tackle problems early on instead of having to deal with those same problems near your deadline. Reviewing your work is done easily when data is easy shareable so it’s important to enter a mindset where you’re constantly reminded that when you’re doing something on the long run you should help yourself in the future, to – so adding files, notes and linking tasks is important so that everything is associated in a specific and fool proof way. It’s also a good idea to create a dashboard that is able to compile the most relevant data points, such as your timeline, task status, the project calendar, completion rate etc. FTC: This video is sponsored by Notion.
