I had the best time last month reading Lewis Howes, "School of Greatness." My husband first shared Howes podcast of the same name with me, and while I enjoy listening to it from time to time, the book really blew me away. There was an exercise at the end of every chapter, and so I decided I would share some of them with you.
First Up! Perfect Day Itinerary (PDI)!
Perfect Day Itinerary (PDI)- In this exercise you map out what your perfect day would look like when you're on the path to the life you've envisioned for yourself. Here's mine:
On my perfect day I wake up to sunlight streaming through my window and the gentle sounds of quiet. My husband, the love of my life, my best friend, is still asleep beside me. I kiss him on the forehead and tip-toe out of our room. I go outside on our porch and sit in the rocking chair as I sip a cup of tea and begin journaling. I meditate before walking through the garden, stopping to feed and visit the chicken, and collect fresh eggs for breakfast. After spending time with my children and husband over breakfast, I got to my office to write for a while. After that I check email and make sure that all benchmarks and action items have been taken care of for the upcoming camps I have created to foster creativity, build community and empower. I send my editor the latest draft of my latest book, and figure out which stops my family will join me for on my upcoming book tour. I am done with all of this no later than 3pm in the afternoon, and the rest of the day is spent reading, coloring, cooking, watching movies and spending time with those I love. When I lay my head on the pillow that night, I feel incredibly grateful and blessed for all the happiness and fulfillment my life holds.
