It’s become part of my thinking and my daily routine.
The most important questions for me lately are twofold.
What Do I Want? Closely followed by Why?
The reason that Tony’s system actually works is due to his ingenious and revolutionary integration of human emotion into planning.
This isn’t a ‘productivity’ system. This is a door to a better way of living.
I wake up between 3:45 and 4:30AM. I then drink a liter of filtered water with lemon juice I squeeze into it.
I slip into my clothes and work out for an hour. I sip some amino energy to prevent from going catabolic. I’m recomping.
I hit the sauna for 30, go upstairs hit the contrast shower (hot then cold to finish,) get dressed and go to my journal.
I then begin to plan out my day.
I look at my master task list.
I then get myself into the state of certainty, confidence, and ask… “What Do I Really Want?” then write.
Some days I have a lot to capture. Some days I don’t.
Then I Ask The Most Important Question. I Feel Excited/Nervous Every Time I Ask Before Certainty Comes.
Boom. The floodgates open. I begin talking about my family, mother earth, my close friends, the community… the awful things going on I want to help fix. The beauty that needs to be protected and nurtured with resources I till and mine.
If I’ve answered ‘Why?’ correctly. I’ll be emotionally moved.
From there I’ll ask… Okay. “How?”
Then I write down a bunch of plans. Usually totally different than my action items.
For instance: If your desire is to “get a little more money this month.” The why is “Because it’ll keep me out of debt.” It’s not gonna move you very much. You’ll go through the motions. But you won’t have passion to influence.
If your desire is to “Help Feed 3000 Starving Children In My Community Within 30 Days.” The why is going to be a bit different. Right?
I choose to live my life fired up. Motivated. Passionate.
Tony’s system gets me fired up, motivated, and ready to take on the world every day. It’s a consistency that greatly impacts the quality and the coverage of my business and life.
