The World’s #1 Authority On Trust-Based Selling

The World’s Most Powerful 60-Second Habit

A few weeks ago, my friend Perry Marshall mentioned to me a positive habit that he does every morning.

It’s so simple, that at first I didn’t think much of it.

Then I started doing it and am already starting feeling a sense of accomplish from it.

I’d recommend you try it as well.

Every morning after you wake up, write down one thing you accomplished the day before that moves you closer to your personal and/or professional goals.

Of all the daily rituals that I’ve tried over the years, this one has been the most effective in building accomplishment into my subconsious and keeping my on track.

Here are the 15 that I’ve written down over the past 15 days.

1. Hired fantastic SEO expert
2. Realized I need to attend Ali’s event and had Michelle agree
3. Learned valuable new ideas from our mastermind at Murrays
4. Finished publishing archived testimonials
5. Bonded with Dale and was invited to speak at his events
6. Secured trip to Ali’s event
7. Started launch process
8. Wrote new solid email broadcast, back in the writing flow
9. Kicked off product development with Dad
10. Got clear on creating a process for launching new products internally and externally
11. Starting writing launch emails, started product development process
12. Started CW sales process
13. Committed to taking Toby to his dance class every thursday
14. Completed entrepenuer decisionship training
15. Helped our team realize UTG changes lives, not just sales numbers

To your success,

    Just read your post Ari, it’s a brilliant idea. It is all too rare that we are taught to acknowledge our strengths and to celebrate our accomplishments. This is such a simple way to do so and at the same time a fabulous way to start one’s day.

    Like Perry suggested I’m going to give it 7 days and report back.

    The most exciting accomplishment for me yesterday was to meet with Delmae and to discuss my future with UTG.

    A friend of mine offers frequently, the sage advice/consideration:

    What is the one thing that you can start doing today, and that you can continue doing, that will help move you closer to your primary goal? And,

    What is the one thing that you can STOP doing today, and discontinue going forward, that is inhibiting your progress toward your goal(s).

    As you alluded to: You don’t have to do everything all at once/multi-tasking is an oxymoron, but step by step, great things are accomplished/in some cases by what you choose to do, and also by what you choose not to do.

    All the best.

    This is very inspiring, I have a lot of downs lately personally and business. This will be very helpful to get my energy and positive feelings back.

    Thank You Very Kindly


  4. Donna

    That’s really thinking with the end in mind! Love the thought of setting a goal and making it focused and achievable. How many times have I had a list of things to do, only to end the day completing half and feeling pressured to do more the following day to catch up.
    Great Idea. Thanks Donna


  5. Mike

    Excellent idea. I’m going to keep a notebook file on my phone with yesterday’s best accomplishment. Certainly moves things in the right direction each morning.

    Hi Ari,

    I have not commented before on any of the posts that I’ve received in my emails but this one was really good so I thought I would shoot a thank you over for sharing it. It is really simple but I do suspect very effective. Thanks for posting up your own 15 day list as it adds a lot of credibility. Its also helpful to see that your list is not filled with outrageous accomplishments. They are all small but effective accomplishments that do lead to a much larger goal. I like it a lot.

      Hi Carlos, great comment there, especially when you said “Its also helpful to see that your list is not filled with outrageous accomplishments.” There’s a myth that really successful people spend their whole day achieving outrageous goals, but when you pull back the curtain, it’s the mini-goals that keep them focused on achieving the real big goals.

    Hello…I had read this yesterday, and intended to implement it immediately! Woke up, headed for the teapot, and then remembered what I had to do, so sat down and started it. The powerful switch of energy in motion has been started and it feels great, thank you!

      Great job Lynne, you’ll soon feel the “groove”!

    Just brilliant Ari…thank you for being an Aussie and sharing with us what it takes to create real trust in selling. I have been to every sales seminar out there, nothing even comes close to what you teach. The results I’ve achieved just from your short talk is incredible. Keep it up!

    This is a great idea. I am used to doing the default priority for the day but don’t always do a lookback. I will try this.

    This sounds like a great idea – I think it could also be a positive way to end the day as well as start it so I think I might try both.

  11. Barbara Lopez,

    Hi Ari – I absolutely LOVE this tip. Instead of thinking about what we DIDN’T accomplish the day before, we’re starting with a positive – I’m going to start doing that. Thank you!

    Thanks for the reframing Ari – I had done this before, yet not until you presented it to reach our sub-conscious, did I see it’s in this way.

    Do this every day for a week and see how different you feel!
