I have struggled with a project for months now, and I just can’t get it done. So I thought about what I could do, without too much effort, to get this done.
I found the answer was by doing very little each day in the morning before everything else. I call this time My Sacred Hour now. It works so well, that I will do my best to make this a habit when the project is finished.
I am surprised by how much I can get done with 30-45 minutes of focused time in the morning. My mind is clutter-free as I have just slept and haven’t gotten any input yet. I found that for this to work, it’s absolutely vital that I don’t do anything that can give me inputs. Output first, always.
The idea of having A Sacred Hour every morning excites me. I want to devote these minutes to something that has big impact on my life. Here are some ideas to My Sacred Hour when the project is done:
- Starting a ‘minimalist business‘ selling only one product online
- Writing a small book about something I am excited about
- Reading non-fiction books to spike my learning
- Learning Indonesian or Spanish
