21 Damn early Days
The core pillars that will set you up for success.
Read and apply them to get started.
Come back and refresh yourself on them regularly.
1. Getting Started
Damn Early Days isn't about waking up damn early, it's about consistently creating space to get closer to what you want in life. Here's what you need to know to get started.
Before you dive into early mornings, there's a couple of things we learned the hard way. Take a read about what you should know going into this.
In order for your 21 Damn Early Days to be successful, you have to spend your time focused on something that's meaningful to you. You need to have something that challenges you, and that keeps you motivated and moving forward. At CS, we call this your SUMMIT.
The hardest part of waking up is getting to bed early. Learn how to put together an evening ritual that draws you back night after night, helping you stay on track, reduce the willpower you need, and get further – faster. It all starts the night before.
More than just getting up early, this is about to winning at your own game and creating space for what matters each morning. Your morning ritual will make sure that you can create the space you need, day after day.
2. THE DAILY DOSE
One day, you won't have the time in front of you to do all those things you want to do. That's just a sobering fact of life.
Fear is something we all have. What if fear may in fact be the fuel and the motivation we need?
We make well-intentioned goals, with the false belief that we just lack commitment and motivation; that all we need is a good kick in the ass to get us going. Unfortunately, this couldn’t be farther from the truth (so please stop being so hard on yourself).
Sharing today, one of the most powerful reminders we know, for getting real perspective on just how short this life truly is.
Stop playing small. Get outside your comfort zone. Remember what makes you come alive
How about your bedtime? Relaxing, or falling into bed exhausted, perhaps after getting lost in our phones or Netflix a bit too long?
What if we rethink what mornings and bedtimes can mean. What if mornings aren't about getting up in order to show up for the outside world, but it's a time when we get up in order to show up for ourselves. Afterwards, then, and only then, do we shift and show up for others.
You committed to this challenge because something inside you told you you wanted more. More from life, more from each day, and more from yourself.
This morning, we're focused on that why.
