Win the Day to Win the Year

Updated: Jul 8, 2021

To win the year, we must first win the day which means approaching each day as it comes. It means living in the moment and focusing our attention on the important tasks of the day. Taking things one day at a time can make life a lot more manageable and is the most effective way to overcome stress and anxiety.

Here is a quote by the great Lou Holtz: “Everybody is looking for instant success, but it doesn’t work that way. You build a successful life (and business) one day at a time.”

Use the first 15 minutes of your day to create a list of priorities for the day, and “Time Block” those activities. And start simple; don’t list more than your day can handle. Stephen Covey once said, “When you have too many top priorities, you effectively have no top priorities.”

Then start by winning the morning. The first hour of your day might look something like this:

· Drink a 10 oz. glass of water

· 5 minutes of introspection (prayer, meditation, etc.)

· 5 minutes of gratitude (what are you thankful for?)

· 15 minutes to plan your day (list the priorities first)

· 15 minutes of reading

· 20 minutes of light exercise

Once you have your priorities for the day, decide how many of them you must accomplish to “win” the day. Move on to set priorities for the week, month, and year and decide how many “wins” you need to meet those goals.

We know that we won’t win every day, but the goal is to win more days than we don’t. Small wins add up to big success, so go out and win the day!
