I am reading this book as part of the 12 Books reading group. I am sharing my answers to questions that the author raises throughout the book. The first chapter is about Improvement and You – Identifying Your Role in Making Your Best Better. The author takes the reader through a series of steps to identify iterative improvement which presupposes that small actions (identified, completed and reviewed with consistency) can build positive momentum. The chapter ends with an exercise on identifying when you are at your best. This is my list for a typical workday:
I am at my best when….
1. I get a good night’s sleep.
2. I eat a good breakfast.
3. I use the treadmill each morning.
4. I create a to do list for each day.
5. I take short breaks ever 60-90 minutes.
6. I listen to peaceful music while I work.
7. I am focused on the task at hand.
What’s on your list?
