Today we’re going to revisitOne Percent Better for ONE more wisdom gem.
Question: What’s 1% of a day?
Do you recall?
(And do you recall that trying torecall something is one of the most powerful ways to dominateLearning 101? Yep.)
Answer:1% of the day is 14 minutes and 24 seconds.
Note: I’ve changed the countdown on my Timex watch from 16 minutes and 40 seconds (which is 1,000 seconds) to 14 minutes and 24 seconds (1% of the day!!) so I can measure my meditation and deep work time blocks and, well, a bunch of stuff in 1% increments. Super fun. We’ll come back to that more as we have fun seeing if we can make at least 51% (!!!) of our days Heroically intentional.
Here’s the wisdom gem I want to focus on…
Brian tells us:“Ifyou don’t have a plan, how are you getting better? The problem is when you stop getting better, you start getting bitter, and nobody likes being around people who are bitter all the time.”
That’s Today’s +1.
Are YOU gettingbetteror are you gettingbitter?
It’s a simple question with far-reaching impact.
Which will it be, Hero?
Here’s to continuously refining our plans to GET BETTER lest we go the wrong direction andget bitter.
