005: The One Thing I Do Every Morning To Create Clarity | The Robb Review
Welcome to the first Robb Review! Every Wednesday, I’ll share something that I’m experimenting with in my personal life or my business life, and then I’ll give you the tips, tricks, and strategies that I’ve learned.
Today’s Topic: The Morning Pages
Morning Pages is a process created by Julia Cameron. Although it was originally intended to help with writer’s block, the practice can help anyone gain clarity.
The process is simple: as soon as you get up (and pour your morning beverage), just grab some paper and start writing. Whatever you’re thinking about – good or bad, silly or serious – write it down, and keep writing until you fill up three pages.
The goal is to wipe the slate clean, clear your cache, and generally shake the dust out of the carpet that is your brain.
I try to do this Monday through Friday, and when I don’t, I really notice the difference. It’s the best, most reliable way I know to start your day with a clear head.
If you get stuck, or you are mulling over a problem, write these three questions at the top of the page:
- What would it look like if it were easy?
- What would it look like if it were fun?
- What would it look like if it were elegant?
Those three prompts will help you look at whatever you are writing about from three entirely different perspectives.
- I’d love your feedback on the show, and to show my thanks I’m raffling away a ticket to Lewis Howes’ next event, every week. Click here to review the podcast and leave a 5-star Review.
