Creating Your Ideal Average Day
If you’ve immersed yourself in personal development over the years like I have, there’s a good chance you’ve done an ideal day exercise where you write down what your life will look like on an ideal day sometime in the future.
I’ve done this exercise before in the past, and have a very vivid image in my mind of what that day looks like. I must have written it out at least 5 years ago now, and I don’t think I’ve looked at it more than a couple of times since, but I can say every day I’m closer to that ideal day vision.
Earlier today I was watching a video lesson from one of my colleagues and mentors Brian Swan from the Unstoppable Family (great inspirational story of living life on your own terms), and he shared a new twist on this exercise that I hadn’t heard before.
He Called It Designing Your Ideal Average Day
How does your ideal day, and your ideal average day differ?
To me, your ideal day is that one opulent day filled with all the most remarkable things you can imagine for your life.
Obviously a great vision to have and hold for your future and work towards on a daily basis, but it won’t become your ideal average day because you just won’t likely do all of those things every single day, even in your ideal life.
Here’s a quick video I did on the subject of your ideal average day, and below I’ll give you more detail on how to design it so you can create it for yourself.
How to Create Your Ideal Average Day
Below are a list of prompts or questions to answer so you can begin to envision what your life will look like when you’re living your ideal average day.
As you answer these questions be sure to write (in blue ink) with as much detail and using as many of your 5 senses in the description as possible. The more vivid you can make the description the better.
- Where would you live? (by the beach, in the mountains, on a farm, in the city?)
- Describe your house in detail. (how big, garage, pool, garden, landscaping)
- What time would you wake up? (with an alarm, when the sun comes up)
- What would you do in the morning? (exercise, meditate, yoga, read, relax)
- What would you have for breakfast? (describe the menu in all it’s delicious detail)
- What kind of thoughts are you thinking about? (gratitude, planning your day, laughing)
- How would you spend the first half of the day? (working, playing, meetings, shopping)
- What would you have for lunch? (again, full details)
- Who would you eat with? (alone, with family, business lunch, meeting friends)
- What would you friends be like? (who are the people you associate most with)
- What would you talk about? (politics, the news – I hope not!, travel, philosophy, interests)
- What would you do for personal fulfillment? (what feeds your soul? hobbies, interests, spiritual practices)
- What life purpose would you strive towards? (what is the legacy you want to leave)
- What would your business be? (entrepreneur, business owner, investor)
- What does your work day look like? (hours, co-workers, activities)
- What is your ideal client? (what do they do, why do they purchase from you)
- What are your personal relationships like? (married, single, children)
- What do your evenings look like? (supper, family time, relaxing, going out)
- What is your bedtime routine? (meditation, reading, journaling, making love)
Take some time, and actually do this ideal average day exercise. It’s tough to hit a target you don’t see, which is why visualizing where you want to go is so important.
As I’ve mentioned here and in the past, writing out my goals and getting specific about them has had a profound impact on what I’ve been able to achieve the past few years. In fact, I was blown away by how quickly some things manifested in my life after I simply got them out of my head and put them down in writing.
You too can start living the life you imagine for yourself if you’ll start today by outlining your ideal average day and then begin at once taking small steps towards making that vision a reality.
