The fact is none of us are going to wake up tomorrow and drastically transform our life in 24 hours.
“Small changes eventually add up to huge results” — Unknown
This reality is okay though. We can start small and then build our way up. That’s how I’ve transformed my own life and you can do the same.
This post is about a fourteen-day plan that you can use to get you well on the road to personal transformation
The fourteen-day plan is easy, simple, clear and a bit of fun too.
The first few days will start off with small activities and then we’ll gradually build up to some bigger changes you can experiment with.
As a side note, I used the phrase growth hack in the title of this article for you cool techies who are obsessed with this phrase or even the startup life.
Either way, the advice in this article will work for anyone who’s willing to execute on the plan.
Here’s the 14-day plan to transform your life:
To start off with, this week is all about creating space and minimizing everything in your life.
Start with a clean slate.
Everything you tried up until now is in the past.
Throw away any failures you may have had and start the first day fresh.
Visualise how you want to feel at the end of the 14-days. I don’t want you to do anything else on day one.
Empty space and time to think are so important.
Write two big goals you want to achieve in the next twelve months (no more!). Write down why they are crucial to your life and how you’ll feel at the end.
Connecting with positive feelings gives you a jolt of motivation. As humans, we’re driven by how things make us feel.
As an example, my two big goals right now are to nail five speeches and change careers. Nice and simple and both are major changes.
With your two goals floating around in your head, let them simmer for a bit. In the meantime, we need to create space in your life.
This starts with one huge clean-up. Throw out everything that doesn’t bring you joy or makes you feel bad (feelings again are front and center).
When I did my own clean out, I threw away more than 50% of my possessions and donated lots to charity.
Your stuff is taking up space in your life which will be needed to execute on your two big goals.
