You know how every once in a while someone comes into your life and adds something of value that can be so helpful and possibly even life changing?
Well, that happened to me a few weeks ago. I was at a business conference in San Diego when I met up with a friend whom at the time I would call just an acquaintance. We were sharing thoughts and ideas about each other's businesses when she shared with me her strategy for getting sh!t done.
A morning routine.
Without taking the time to go into detail, let's just say I planned out a morning routine for myself which now includes time for building my business. Most importantly though, this routine is non-negotiable! Nada. Nope. It is going to happen every single day.
All this is to say I have become accountable to myself in a way I just haven't been for a long time. I'm honoring my commitments to myself.
Small (or big) win right here!
You may be asking, "so what's this have to do with me?"
Remember I've talked a lot about that fun little app called 1 Second Everyday? Have you made the commitment to yourself to record just a few quick seconds of your day, every day?
If you've missed it you can check out my blog posts here and here.
If you had good intentions of starting but just haven't because of...well, life...no worries! Just go download the app and start now.
If you did begin your snippets with me, you probably have close to 3 weeks of 1 second snippets ready to go.
So let's have some fun now!
Go into the app-you'll see a calendar-any day that shows a video camera icon means you have a video from that day. Tap on the day and then tap on the "+" to add your snippet. Make sure you've done this for each day you have a video. (You can add a photo if you don't have a video for that day, but I personally only use videos)
Once you've done that, all you have to do is tap the "mash" button. Choose the dates you want to include by tapping "Choose Dates" on the bottom left. Tap "Done" and VOILA! You have your first mash! You can choose to save it or continue to play around with different dates or even add music to your mash.
Click on the video at the top of this post to see mine for this 3 week time period.
Are you beginning to see the power in this simple process to instantly take you back to that day and it becomes a memory that won't be forgotten.
"There are 86,400 seconds today. A single second can help you forever remember today :)" ~1 Second Everyday
I know we are all so busy and overwhelmed with the holiday season right now, but if you can make this one small commitment to yourself-a quick 1 second snippet of your day-I believe it could very well be one of those LIFE CHANGING events.
Plus, there's the added bonus of what happens to us internally when we become accountable to ourselves. Truly make a decision to show up for ourselves the way we do for everyone else.
1 Second Everyday is one small, easy thing we can commit to that will pay dividends for years to come. That's a WIN!
Here's the heart of the matter:
Small wins aren't always small, they can be GINORMOUS!
Committing to yourself to begin saving small snippets of your everyday will begin the process of keeping memories that would have been forgotten.
Let this be one of those life changing moments for you!
