The Equilibrium Recipe


  1. Want to keep yourself on track everyday?

  2. Carve out three checkpoints each day, one in the morning, one midday, and one in the evening

  3. Every morning as you’re planning your day, ask yourself “What would a productive person do?”

  4. At the midday checkpoint, ask, “What one thing can I do to finish on time?”

  5. In the evening, use the MY NEXT STEPS section to ask yourself, “What’s the next small step?”

P.S. You can use the NOTES + IDEAS section or the REFLECTIONS + TAKEAWAYS section

Why This Recipe works

Keeping daily checkpoints prevents procrastination and helps to keep our brains productive during the day. These 3 checkpoint questions help shape your mindset during the day to stay on task and fulfill your goals.
