You just can’t seem to get shit done. You procrastinate and your to-do-list seems to never finish.
Now why do you think this is happening?
- Lack of organization?
- Lack of Focus?
- Lack of self-motivation?
None of the above!
Let me first tell you. What I am about to tell you may sound harsh, but man up and deal with it.
I wasn’t always like I am today, Hell No! I wasn’t driven, I wasn’t organize and my all means I wasn’t getting shit done. I was chaotic…
What the hell did I do to change?
This is what I like call The Get Shit Done Formula.
Energy + Purpose + The one thing = Getting shit done.
Now before you go “Holy Crap Ameer… WTF is that?” Let me explain to you…
Okay, now be quiet and listen up on How To Organize Your Life
Step 1 – Energy
This is very important, you have to understand TIME means nothing. If you don’t have the energy to maximize and organize your time, what’s the point?
I can give you 3 hours to do a task, however if you can’t concentrate, have energy dips and just can’t seem to stay AWAKE. Then your 3 hours means “F” all
Be honest with yourself…
– How energetic are you?
– Do you have crashes?
– How is your mental mindset throughout the day?
Most likely the answer is shit!
Because your body is running like a dirty old stripper on Queen Street instead your body needs to running as George St Pierre MMA fight.
How do you change the energy of your body?
Enter the #Ameerapproved formula for organize your life and getting shit done!
#1 – Sleep Like a Champ.
Man, I keep on saying it over and over again. Get your freaking ass to bed!
This is my rule Sleep at 10 and lights out at 8pm: This means no lights, no comp, and no electronics. UN-plug, read a real book, spend time with your family.
Bottom Line… sleep controls your hormones, testosterone, cortisol, growth hormone etc…
#2 – Morning Ritual
What are you doing to prime your body and mind in the morning?
If the answer is nothing. Oh shit…you are in trouble. This is what I do and hopefully it can help you.
Upon waking I thank the universes for being alive. I then walk to my kitchen and make myself 1 liter of lemon spring water with baking soda and chug it down.
I then sit down and do my Five minute journal.
After I write or read, depending on how I feel for 30 minutes. I will then go outside for my mobility work
Total time = 45 min
This will prime you for your day.
#3 – Diet
YEAH, let’s talk about this.
Let’s keep this shit simple. (I will not complicate you with my seasonal eating diet) However you need to fuel yourself.
The template I use is called the #Ameerapproved diet.
Don’t eat fake food!
Eat REAL FOOD. Cook your own shit!
Here is a template what I eat. (Yeah it’s boring, but this shit is rocket fuel for your Mitochondria.)
Breakfast = Liver + Kale + Coconut oil
Lunch = Sardines + Sauerkraut + Mix greens veggies
Dinner = Salmon + Broccoli + Sweet potato.
Rinse and repeat.
Once you give your body the tools it needs. YOU will attain ultimate energy.
This is one of my secrets for organizing my life. I have unlimited energy, noting can stop me. What takes most 3 hours to do, I can do in 1 hour.
Step 2 – Purpose
Okay, what the hell do I mean by Purpose?
You say you want to create a business, but do you really?
You say you want to be healthy, but do you really?
Be honest with yourself!
I recommend auditing yourself. And really figuring out the purpose behind your goals. Here’s my purpose, hopefully it helps:
“To inspire a new generation of independent though leaders and free thinkers.”
My WHY drives everything I do! Creating new Optimal Health Warriors!
Step 3 – The One Thing
This is the icing on top of the cake. The one thing has revolutionized how I go about my day-to-day process. And it has helped me tremendously organize my life very fast. I learned this method from Gerry Keller from his ground breaking book “The One Thing”.
Formula = What is the One thing you can do today to complete your weeks goal
“What’s the ONE Thing I could do, such that by doing it everything else would be easier or unnecessary?” Then time block to make it happen. It doesn’t have to be any more complicated than that.
People always think I am doing a lot. That’s far from the truth. I use the one thing formula to help me organize my day to get shit done.
Each week I plan my next week ahead of time and block off 3 hours each day for my one thing.
It’s simple as that. That’s how you organize your life and get shit done. Only focus on one thing and block off your time. No cell phone, put it on Airplane mode. No social media. I Use a program called anti-social to block off the world. I even put up a sign up in my office saying “Fuck off mate, getting shit done.”
Here is a resource you can use to map out your weeks. Click Here
Transfer your one-year as well as any personal yearly goals to your 411. The 411 stands for four weeks, one month and one year. This will be where you keep track of annual, monthly and weekly big rocks. Analyzing your year using the focusing question, fill in your monthly goals and then what you will accomplish this week to stay on track with your monthly achievements. Review and update your 411 on a weekly basis.
That’s the Formula on how you organize your life and shit done.
Now what the hell do you do from here?
