A good way to get your day off to a productive start is to follow a routine. Marcel Schwantes, in this article, suggests a 23-minute regimen to focus on the positive aspects of life and work, get your juices flowing, and quiet your mind. In my observation, if you accomplish those three things, you'll be off to a good start. Whether you follow the routine he suggests, or some other discipline you devise, preparing your mind, psyche and body for a productive day is the best way to get going effectively in the morning. 

The Routine is the Important Thing - DO IT Routinely!

Once you've established a routine, it should be followed rigorously. Cutting corners or ignoring parts of it will pretty much render it ineffective. You can, of course, in a conscious well-considered decision, add to it (I'll address that in a minute) or change some part of it. The key thing is that, except for a well-thought-out and more or less permanent change, you follow the routine precisely and completely, not deviating from it for momentary convenience.

These Suggestions Prompted me to Revise my Routine 

While I've long been a proponent and practitioner of following routines in preparation for many activities, including the start of the day, I find the addition of the message of gratitude and the journaling of a positive event to do wonders for my psychological attitude as I begin the day. The small amount of time and effort required pale in comparison to the immense benefit they produce. I had not previously been including those items in my mornings.

In the past I've found journaling to be a laborious activity, and very hard to stay with. I like Marcel's suggestion of covering one positive event and, for me, that generates the desired benefit without a huge effort.

While I'm a pretty positive guy, and often express my gratitude for many things, doing so as part of m morning routine is a new idea to me. After a few days doing that, I find it really adds to the sense of positivity I bring to the beginning of the day.

Do More of What You Love Doing - and What
 
You Get PAID For!

Are you a business coach, or do you advise business leaders on how they can accomplish more in their businesses? When you're working with your clients, you're doing the work you love - AND that you get paid for. Writing the promotional material to attract new business takes you away from time with the clients you're already helping. It also mentally distracts you from that work. Your coaching work also distracts you from your promotional writing, very likely detracting from its effectiveness. Why not let Unity Copywriting write those pieces for you so you can concentrate on your most important work? 

My goal as a copywriter is to give you back most of the time you spend writing promotional material to attract new clients and communicate with existing ones about your services (I'll keep a little of that time while you explain to me exactly what you want). That way you can concentrate on your coaching work while I do the heavy lifting on your promotions - explaining to your clients and prospects the benefits you offer them. Please call (814-590-3854 or 603-835-3215) or email me so we can discuss how we might work together. 

Put My Experience to Work for You...

As a practitioner and student of leadership for over 45 years, and in recent years a business coach myself, I'm uniquely qualified to help you promote your coaching business. And I love writing about this work. So, in a fraction of the time you would spend writing a white paper, case study, blog, newsletter, article or book, you can tell me the idea you want to convey or the story you want to tell, and the tone you'd like to use. Then I'll go to work writing that piece while you continue your work with your clients.   After I've written something for you, we'll review it together and make any necessary adjustments so it sends exactly the message you want - and there's no additional charge for any rewriting I do.

I'd Love to Hear from You

Does this suggestion make a difference in your morning? I'd love to hear how these recommendations, or other ideas, make your days more effective, or even if you have some reservations about them. Your thoughts on this week's topic and other ideas you have for improving your business and your life are very interesting to me. I love hearing these kinds of ideas and learning from them.

If you email me whatever's on your mind, please give me a phone number or a Skype address, or send me (see my Skype address below) a Skype contact request, and mention that you read my newsletter. This reference is important - with all the spammers, phishermen, etc. out there, I've gotten very selective about my connections on networking services. If your name is unfamiliar to me, I'll consider your contact request when you tell me your reason for wanting to connect with me...

Conversations are often necessary to discuss complex ideas, and conversations occur only face to face or on the phone; hence, my request for your phone or Skype information. Email and other forms of one-way electronic communication are data transfers, and are very useful for many types of communication. However, they don't allow for the exchange of ideas, emotions, and inflection that characterize conversations, so please call me or tell me how to call you. Now, e ven if you're not a Skye subscriber, you can call me directly through Skype. Just dial 603-835-3215 from any phone in the U. S. Of course, if you call from outside the U. S., you'll need the +1 prefix. If you're calling from Argentina, you're welcome to call my Argentine number, 9 3868 459586.

Please Help me Spread my Message Where It's Welcome..
 
Please pass any of my weekly messages along to anyone you think will find value in them. If someone forwarded this to you, and you'd like to hear more, please send me an email and I'll be glad to add you to my mailing list, which I never sell, rent, or even add a name to without permission. 

On the other hand, if you'd rather not receive these messages any more, simply click the "unsubscribe" link below. I'll promptly remove you from the list...and I promise you won't hurt my feelings. It's my desire to send these ideas only to people who find them interesting and useful.

Join me here again next week for more unique ideas on how to get more done in your life and business, while enjoying it more. If you're looking for ways to get your day off to a productive start, take Marcel Schwantes' suggestion to heart. I hope your days start better as a result.
 
Thanks for reading. Have a wonderful week , and contact me  to discuss how I can help you add value to what  you  do. Our conversation about how we can work together is totally on me. You won't pay me a dime until you hire me to write something for you.

Be well, my friends.
