How To Change Your Life In Just 10 Minutes Per Day

We’ll Even Have Time To Spare

Two weeks ago, someone on Quora asked me: What 10 minute daily activity would sharpen my mind over a year?

I know exactly what that is.

10 minutes, ha! I’m going to show you not one, but six things. We’ll change your life and we’ll do it with time to spare.

After this, you’ll feel calm, prepared and ready to take on the world, like this:

Ommmmmmmm

Let’s go!

First, imprint this image of a staircase in your head:

The word “Savers” is an acronym. It stands for:

  • Silence.
  • Affirmations.
  • Visualization.
  • Exercise.
  • Reading.
  • Scribing.

Now, every morning, right when you wake up, do each of these six things for one minute.

1 Sit upright, legs crossed, eyes closed in silence. Let your thoughts pass through. Breathe slowly and deeply, like you’re meditating.

2 Read or recite a short set of affirmations, a little pep talk for yourself. I keep mine in my nightstand. Look at yourself in the mirror for extra oomph.

(Marshall Eriksen is the master of pep talks)

3 Visualize yourself going through your day. Open your window or step outside, look at the sky, and imagine yourself actually doing the things you will do that day, whether it’s grocery shopping, filling an Excel table, writing, cold calling people or flambéing a chicken.

Beautiful Munich. Nothing like a good sunrise.

4 Do ONE set of ONE exercise. That’s it. Shoot for however many repetitions you can muster that day. I like push ups. Sometimes I do 20. Sometimes 50. Adapt to how well you feel.
