As I have stated before, I have a few “triggers” that keep me moving in the right direction. My favorite one is starting my day with a drink of water. As soon as I wake up, go to the kitchen; fill up the cup and drink. During this drink I remind myself of all the good I want to do today. It immediately gives me a sense of calm and focus. When I skip my drink, and perhaps do anything else, well…let’s just say that doesn’t work.
Most importantly, I’d like to know from you, what is your trigger? What gets you and your day on the right path? When things are going right, and you are firing on all cylinders, what is the common thread? What are you doing every day that keeps you on target? Recently, I’ve taken an informal poll, and these are some of the responses I received.
- Get up immediately when the alarm goes off (no snooze)
- Morning cup of tea
- A cup of coffee and a good poop!
