Yes! You read it correctly! Wouldn’t you just love to live your dreams? How about getting what’s in your head on to paper and watching it unfold right before your eyes? This is what an ideal day by design looks like! Most of us, who’s pet peeve is wrapped around having more productive days, would benefit greatly from drafting an ideal day. We want to know that we are using our time wisely and benefiting instead of letting the hours roll by day in and day out.
Let’s take a crash course in designing your ideal day!
Step 1. Grab a journal and a pen (set a timer for 15 minutes)
Step 2. Find a quiet place where you can relax and let your mind flow
Step 3. Say a dua(prayer) that will keep you at ease and ask God to grant you ease in the task you are about to do.
Step 4. Begin writing what time of the day you are most enthusiastic, energized, motivated and ready to “give it all you got”
Step 5. Think and write about your habits in regards to your family , career, personal, and spiritual life.
Step 6. Write exactly what your ideal day feels, sounds, and looks like. Be specific ! You want to be ale to notice it when it really does happen!
Here are a few questions to ask yourself as you get started!
What is my ideal day?
How would I like to see my deal day unfold?
What am I wearing?
Where am I?
What am I doing?
Who is there with me?
Do I need help? Who is helping me?
Why do I want to do what I am doing?
How do I feel?
What do I want?
Continue writing without worrying about mistakes in mechanical or grammatical errors! Let your mind flow and embrace this moment. You will be surprised at what your imagination holds! We spend time imagining things often and hardly write or talk about it, Maybe what we hold in our amazing minds can be of help to someone or to ourselves, and we will never really know unless we “get it out of our heads” and on paper. Having it on paper helps us to formalize it and make plans to achieve it.
Draft your ideal day for 15 minutes daily and put it where you have easy access to it. Look at it often and watch the change that begins to take place!
