If You Want To Accelerate Your Personal Growth Easily, List 10 Things Every Day

If You Want To Accelerate Your Personal Growth Easily, List 10 Things Every Day

No doubt you’ve heard that successful people have a tendency to wake up early. However, it’s not the waking up early that makes them successful – it’s what they do with this quiet time.

Think of it this way: If you’ve gained an extra hour in your day by waking up early, are you going to watch celebrity news on TV, or use the time productively to improve your body, mind and life? One thing you could definitely try, is to stretch your brain first thing in the morning. A good way to do this is to list 10 things every day. Let’s see how this works.

Firstly, get yourself a notepad and pen, and leave them by the side of your bed. Once you wake up in the morning (hopefully early!), then immediately pick up the pad and pen. The next step is to write down the day and date (try not to cheat by looking at your cellphone). Then, and this is the key part, write a list heading. This can be any topic at all, but must be one where writing 10 items causes you to think deeply.

As an example for you, imagine choosing this heading for your list today:

Now, what you would need to do is to come up with the 10 things. For starters, you may write something like this:

  1. My family
  2. My health
  3. My job

The first three or so items should be relatively easy to list, but after that, your mind will most likely have to dig deep to come up with further examples. This is what you want to happen. As the idea of writing a list of 10 items every day is so that your mind will become sharper, clearer and more creative. It’s also a great way to wake yourself up in a morning!

You shouldn’t need to spend an hour on this activity, instead, aim for 3-10 minutes a day. So, why not try this idea for a week, and see what the results are? You may find that it’s a challenging, but super-rewarding daily mental exercise.
