With no goals or big aspirations, I made one small, positive change in my life. The change wasn’t so important. The implementation of the change was everything. A small step that can be repeated every day.


  1. Wake Up
  2. Yoga Stretches – 10 minutes
  3. Mindfullness meditation  – 20 minutes
  4. Journal – ask myself a set of questions each morning and evening – 10 minutes
  5. Idea Listing – 10 new idea’s every day – usually based on a theme (chapters of a book, new products, etc)

This is the process that changed everything for me. Not overnight. But gently. And slowly. A small, healthy change here and there. Repeated. Every day. Positive change happened. I tested, learned, applied, and grew.
