Want to have a great year? Read these first thing in the morning for 365 days:

  1. Do more of what gives you energy. How much energy you have each day determines the quality of your life — Eat healthy food. Rest, sleep, and exercise more. Similarly, do less of what robs you of energy — Less sugar, less toxic news, and less screen time.
  2. Work with excellence. Being excellent is a choice you can make every single moment. If you are not willing to do an excellent job at something, there’s a good chance you are just wasting your time and energy. Do something else.
  3. Work with love and joy. You can’t work with excellence if you are doing things half-heartedly. If you want to give it your all, give it some love and joy. It will make all the difference.
  4. Live what God intended for you to be. Ryan Holiday said in his article that nature demands a human being to do his job. My take is that all human beings are created in God’s image and likeness. You were meant to be great, successful, and achieve good things in life — act accordingly.
  5. Push yourself daily and never settle for comfort. If something feels too easy, ask yourself how it can be better. The more challenging it gets, the faster you can grow. The more failures you encounter, the smarter you become.
  6. Stay calm and keep a cool head. Everyone can act decently in pleasant situations but not everyone can keep a cool head in stressful situations. If you can keep calm and treat every situation as workable, you will get ahead of everyone else.
  7. Stay away from any physical and mental clutter. Old garments and negative thoughts are distractions that stop you from being great. The more you take away things that don’t serve you, the more time you have to appreciate the things that truly matter.
  8. Rise early and with a purpose. It might take a lifetime to figure out what your purpose is. The least you can do to make the most out of the life you’re given is to wake up early and get to work (do whatever you can do for the world today) — It’s also the simplest and most effective way to practice discipline.
  9. Stick to your schedule. Everybody can…
