10 Time Zone Ritual

With 5 times zones in the morning and 5 in the evening that can be a maximum of 90 minutes, it is framework for you to effectively invest your time.

  1. Creative Time: This is the time for you to do your creative work. Now, your creativity can peak at different times—in the morning, or later on in the day. Spend the time creating, building and inventing.
  2. Exercise Time: Spend a little time for your exercise and it will help you to energize and bring vibrancy back in your body to wake it up. Make sure you are always doing it, even when you are traveling.
  3. Team Time: Now it's the time to look at your team and provide them everything they need from your end so that they can carry on with their work even when you are not around.
  4. Strategy Time: Revisit where you are heading towards. Take your 90 day plans, have strategies in place and make sure that they are working.
  5. MIF Time: Most Important First is when you do the tasks of the day by the order of their importance. It's not placing the difficult ones in front; it's doing something that ranks high in your priorities.
  1. Review Time: This is when you check off your to-do lists, and review anything that comes from your team, clients or customers.
  2. Wins Time: No matter how small they are, acknowledge the things that have happened throughout the day and document the wins.
  3. Gratitude Time: Try to make gratitude your daily act and reflect on who or what you are grateful for. Acknowledge your team members and it can turn around their day.
  4. Plan Time: Plan for the next day with three W's: (1) What are the 3 things that you need to get done, (2) What's for the next day and (3) Who are the people you need to connect with.
  5. Unplug Time: Completely unplug from all the agendas, and have the time for you to just disconnect.
