  • Reduce the number of your excuses to 0, because excuses are the opposites of success.
  • Define 1 primary purpose and link all your actions to that purpose, because purpose will give direction to your actions.
  • Spend 2 minutes everyday in meditation, because meditation replenishes your energy and refreshes your mind.
  • End your day by writing 3 actions that you are proud of, because celebrating achievements will foster the desire for more achievements.
  • Divide your food intake of the day into 4 small meals, because this will help you stay fit and energetic throughout the day.
  • Master the 5 second rule, because 5 seconds is all it takes for the mind to decide between action and inaction.
  • Sleep for 6 hours at most everyday, because your dreams are more important than sleep.
  • Read 7 answers on Quora everyday, because learning from other peoples’ experiences is the truest form of learning.
  • Write down 8 creative ideas everyday, because one of these creative ideas will take you to the next level of your career, relationships or fitness.
  • Do 9 minutes of intense exercise, because high intensity exercises will jump start your metabolism. Heightened metabolism is necessary for heightened productivity!
