It’s not what you think.

At least not what I think. No way can each day be a story book type of day.

But this is where my mindset is fixed.

I’ve been replaying this same story in my head.

Not everything in life is going to be a fairy tale. After all their just stories.

But I’ve learned to trust the system and trust that it will move me towards my goals.

So let me tell you what I mean by make each day a story.

I’m referring more towards the structure rather than the actual contents.

Here’s what I mean.

A story has 3 parts, a beginning, a middle, and end.

So does a day, a week, a month, a year, a decade, I think you get the point.

So what I recently started doing is being intentional with the stories that I have to build.

This keeps me acountable to showing up for myself and helps as reference when making decisions.

I’ve set up a 10 year goal that I started when I turned 30. I am about to start year 3!

Which means every day counts.

Just thinking about this 10 year goal gets me nervous and excited.

I haven’t been that person yet and that means I have lots to grow.

This year I made it a point to journal everyday. No matter how big or how small.

I show up 80% of the time.

The other 20% I forget or I don’t make time for it that day.

Although not bad, I’d like to make it a part of my day like brushing my teeth.

But anyway, I do the same for each year, quarter, month, week, and day.

Everything is based off of what I want to accomplish by year 10.

Treat it like a show, you have 4 seasons, 365 episodes.

What does it need to look like to get to the finale.

This keeps me moving, yea some days I feel burnt and want to rest, but once you see to many days of lounging you can see clearly that you need to change.

When I decided to become an entrepreneur I knew I was going to have to be uncomfortable but it has paid off.

I’ve learned that I am the main character of the story and I can challenge him to make him do the things needed in order to accomplish our goals.

In summary, keeping a journal and task management have helped me create clarity in my life which allows me to do more things that fuel me rather than make me feel burnt out.

What do you think? Am I on to something or do I just sounds crazy?
