An Hour a Day
It's a cold and gloomy morning. The roaring thunderclouds clap as the lightning strikes in a blinding flash. The storm erupts in its final form, but all I can think of is the inside of my head pounding. The last thing I would want to do right now is to get grinding.
Yes, it happens—the cycles of up and down, productivity and rest, hot and cold.
On days like this, it's hard to get anything done. But skipping a day can break your momentum.
This is where habits and routines kick in. Seb realized this in the Year of the Tiger and created a Power Hour for himself. An hour of pure focus where you work on your dreams regardless of whatever else is going on. If you want to find out what happened when he missed a day and what it took to get back, read the full story here.
Whether it's building a tech startup, writing a book, starting a YouTube channel, or simply mastering a skill, an hour a day of focused effort will compound into a mountain of awe before you realize it.
I keep my Power Hour early in the morning as it's easiest to plan, but whatever works for you is fine. It's about keeping yourself going even when you don't feel like it at all.
Well, now, would you look at that? I managed to get some work done despite the choppy start. And I'm ready to tackle the next challenge. Guess this day will turn out fine after all. I hope it does for you as well :)
So, what's in store for your Power Hour?
P.S - Stay Tuned for DejaVu, a short story about looking up. It will be heading to your inbox sometime next week.
