So I’ve been thinking recently that in order to be really inline with yourself you should have the ability to say, at the end of the day, either: I have been successful today. or I have not been successful today. I have failed.
For me. Today. On June 4th, 2013. This will be a 50% day. But hey, I’m getting better.
I thought if I shared what success on a daily basis would mean for me and made a commitment to post whether or not I was successful on Twitter every single day, I would be more likely to actually be successful. So here goes.
For me, being successful on any given day means that I have done 1 of a few different things.
1) Written at least 50% or more of a blog post. – This one must be paired with something else. But should still happen at a rate of three publications a week.
2) Worked on the development of a clearly planned website or web-app for 2 hours.
4) Done something nice and active and mind clearing. – this should also be done in conjunction with another task. Preferably not a blog post.
A 50% day is a day that I only do a blog post or only go for a run/something active or only do 50% of either of the other two tasks.
A 75% day is a day that I either do a blog post and something active or do only an hour of the middle two items and Both of the first and last.
While a 100% day would be a day where I successfully complete one of the middle two items and and any of the other two items.
A 200% day would be a day where I get both item 1, 2 and either one of 2 or 3 done.
So there’s my definition of daily success.
What does Success mean for you?
Also, as a side note, in order to be more capable of reaching success on a daily basis, I have put in my two weeks at my second job. No more 80 hours a week for me and no more delivering Pizza! Extra Life means Extra Goodies.
