This morning, I woke up before the sun.
If I keep this up, I’m on track to have a more or less perfect day for me. But what else needs to be done? What important pieces have to be included to make a day perfect?
If you don’t know how to have a perfect day, you aren’t likely to have one.
We’ve planned out our theoretical perfect days to see if we can have them more frequently.
But more importantly than our days, what’s your perfect day? Write it down, reverse engineer it, and see which pieces you can include more regularly.
You’ll thank yourself over the coming months.
