How to be Successful In Six Hours

How to be Successful in Six Hours

How to be Successful in Six Hours

Success is not an event; it is a process. You will succeed step by step.

The steps are six-hour segments of time.

Each day is divided into 24 hours, and you sleep though many of those.

We can divide the rest of the day into three sessions of six hours duration or less:

  • 7am until 1pm
  • 1pm until 7pm
  • 7pm until bedtime.

To be successful ensure that you act successfully for only six-hours:

  • Keep to your diet for six hours. (Tell yourself that you can easily stick to a diet for six hours).
  • Keep to your training plan for six hours.
  • Resolve not to lose your temper for six hours.
  • Do your best work for six hours.
  • Say only nice things to your loved ones for six hours.

At the end of six hours, congratulate yourself for being successful for six hours.

Then, have something to eat, and think about repeating your successful performance for another six hours.

Imagine that each six-hour period of wakeful activity is a square in a grid. Then to be successful, all you have to do is to tick-off the six-hour squares as "successfully completed".

Personal Effectiveness : How to be Successful in Six Hours

This approach is used by artists to break a difficult drawing into a series of easy steps.

I'm no natural-born artist, but can I draw, if I break it down into easy steps:

Personal Effectiveness : How to be Successful in Six Hours

When you view success as being composed of many smaller, easier segments, it seems more achievable.

I use this method to lose weight. I call it the 717 diet.

I eat every six hours, at 7am, 1pm and 7pm. I don't eat between meals.

I figure that I cannot starve to death in six hours.

But I can lose weight in six hours, if only by a tiny amount. And many tiny amounts add-up to a lot, over time.

I have been on my 717 diet for a year and have lost 16lbs of fat, without even noticing.

You can be successful at anything if you break it down into smaller steps and spend your time, six hours at a time, achieving the goals, step by step.

Try it for yourself.
